David and Angela are popular as well. I’m assuming Brad is still the most popular, you just can’t beat that history, man. 

Some days I’m content with my art, some days I’m upset with my art. I’m not sure why, but today is the latter. It happens. 

Slowwww fucking day at the internship. They’re getting ready for a two day shoot next week so I’ve been sitting around with that finished DVD menu for, about, two weeks now so I come in 7 hours a day to eat and draw on my computer. 

Shoot days are a mixture of excitement and utter dread. It’s fun but it’s also exhausting as shit. 7am call time is not the worst I’ve ever had to do BUT IT’S STILL PRETTY EARLY.

Sorry about not updating LbaMM lately. I got pretty burned out from getting the books put together and sent out. I’m hoping after the shoot I’ll get my energy back. 

I’ve also been writing non-stop the past week or so. It’s fun. I’ve been happy about my writing lately, haha.

This couple came in today with their tiny daughter, the wife was slightly pregnant. 
They were a goddamned caricature. The wife was scary as hell with incredibly straight hair and a very severe look while wearing all black and shoulder pads.. 
The husband was cheery as could be. He joked around with me when the wife would interrupt to ask me questions and he’d put his arm around her, smiling as she’d stare at me, waiting for an answer. 
The daughter didn’t want to leave the store so the mother made the husband leave the store with her and glare at her daughter from the window. She walked away but as she did, the husband ran back in and picked his daughter up to take outside. 
I JUST WANNA KNOW HOW THEY GOT TOGETHER. The second they came in, I was like, “In an anime, she’d totally be a tsundere.” 
IT WAS REALLY FUCKING CUTE. The part of my mind that revels in fantasy and the part that deals with reality are having an all-out war with this. 
Speaking of cute, Jeff Rosenstock. I CANNOT STOP LISTENING TO “SNOW CHARGES”. 
Anyways. I like working a retail job for this reason.

I love winter fashion magazines ‘cause I buy mostly male ones so the summer ones are just filled with different types of t-shirts. 
Or button downs.

What’s up with Brad?

God, I got this wonderful fan letter that I will reply to soon. It reminded me that, HOLY SHIT, David Doesn’t Get It is going to end less than a year from now.

I am extremely nervous. I had planned the ending from the beginning but still. Of course, things changed as the characters developed and some characters gained more importance than others. (Ahem, way to usurp Douglass, BRAD.)

I want to talk about the comic. I want to reflect on it and how it’s changed and my feelings through all of it… but I’m going to wait. Until the end. And I’m going to say goodbye to all of them.

A lot’s going to happen in the last year. I wish I could keep drawing it but I said four years from the start and I meant it. I have to hold myself to my promise.

Led by a Mad Man still has a couple years, this is going to be the first major project of mine that’s going to come to completion and I’m nervous as shit.

To commemorate my nerves, here’s a little prose about Brad’s past. David touches on it a little bit but Brad still managed to keep him in the dark about a lot of stuff.

Brad really has grown a lot, from a minor character to one I worry about all the time. Just… Goddamn, Brad. Just wait for when the comic ends. Ever popular, cheerful Brad.

Hope you enjoy the story!

DVD menu I did for my internship for their short film. That I am getting paid for, whatttt. You can get paid doing art? 
They wanted me to use similar colors and style to their DVD cover. I went and made the background all blue instead so that the important elements popped out more. 
I actually had a ton of fun doing this! 
Anyways, I want to make my TV show already, dammit!

Ok, I think the problem is fixed. 

Feel free to message me if you guys are coming across any more problems. Turn off Anon as well so I don’t have to flood my blog with messages of me trying to fix a problem! 

Thanks!

Anonymous said: Hi! I’m sorry to bother you. I’m just wondering if you have many copies of the Led by a Mad Man books or only a few copies? I’m super excited to buy them but I aint getting paid until later this month and I was just so surprised by the 40 dollar shipping haha so now I have to wait. Do you think they sell out before then? Sorry about the question, I just got little nervous about not getting the chance to buy them.

Whoh, what the fuck?! Shipping is 40 dollars? That can’t be right, let me go check that out. 

Ah, ok. I figured out what I did wrong. If you buy both, international shipping should only be 22 now. Sorry about all that and thanks for bringing it to my attention. 

I admit. There’s not a lot of copies. I have 5 copies of each volume. But if I sell out and people still want more, I would happily print more as soon as I can, so even if you miss this chance, don’t worry about it. Another opportunity will come up soon enough. I think for the subsequent prints, I won’t have to make a kickstarter and just use the profit from this instead.
