Hey everyone! I’ve been working hard on some new stuff for this site lately, and I’ve started using some new software to make my next few comics. Things are looking great here but I am not going to be able to get this week’s comic done 🙁
Until then, I’m hoping to hear from all of you! I love hearing from my readers and I take your suggestions as often as I can. Let me hear what you think of the new site, how do you like the most recent comics? What would you like to see on some T-shirts when I start making them? There’s so much to talk about!
hey everyone! I finally got the site looking good, big thanks to my friend Andrew for the help, couldn’t have done it on my own!
One thing we got working was a more “webcomic” style layout with navigations that you’re all accustomed to, but for some reason the new format isn’t letting my subscribers know when I put up a new comic. So until I figure that all out I’ll be making little posts like this to keep you all updated!
“The Chase” was drawn over a few weeks while I worked on some of these recent strips. It comes both from my love of the 80s and my love of Calvin and Hobbes. The format may seem familiar, and that’s because this is basically a Spaceman Spiff strip. All credit for the concept to the great Bill Waterson!!
I’ve been having a blast making all these strips and I’ve gotten some great feedback on sites like reddit and facebook, but so far very few comments right here on the site! I’d like to encourage all of you to say hi, let me know what you think, comment on the comics, I would really like to know what you all have to say! Also, I’m an artist, I thrive on attention… If you have any requests, let me know, and check out the facebook page, there’s special stuff there that I don’t put up here! The Awkward Love Facebook Page is HERE!
Anyways, it’s been fun so far and I’ve been working on some (hopefully) great strips for the weeks to come. I hope you all continue to enjoy Awkward Love and I look forward to hearing from you!

After the first few strips I made, I figured this was just a little “me” project. I made this for my friends and family, and had no expectations of heavy traffic. Because of this, I have been very slow about posting new content. It was really just a “post when the idea hits me” kinda thing. However, in the last few days I’ve seen a HUGE uptick in the views here and I am honored and humbled to have so many people reading my comics.
Now I don’t want to be a bad web comic creator, and I’m told a good web comic needs consistent updates… Well I’m here to say that I will be doing everything in my power to get a strip or some other art out once a week. Thank you all SO much for stopping by. It’s a great feeling to have so many people reading these all of a sudden. You are all very appreciated and if you have thoughts, ideas or other comments about this little project of mine, this is a great place to let me know! Hold on tight, folks, this comic is about to start moving again!
Well I’m back. I started this comic almost a year ago, but then I got married, got a new job and started teaching game design at a local college. I’ve been so busy it hurts, but the up side is I’ve had lots of time to think about the direction of this comic. I am really looking forward to making more posts, this is my little slice of heaven, making comics for all of you. Hope I get my old readers back, I do feel pretty bad for jumping ship for a while.
It’s been a long weekend, and this week is going to be a long one too. I’m working on animations for a pretty awesome 2D fighting game for the iPhone. It’s just me doing the work of at least three people, and to make matters worse, Bioshock Infinite just came out. Oh yes, I will be playing lots of that game I can assure you, but I’m also going to have to give up sleep for the next few days to get my work done… Sigh, so much to do, so little time. WISH ME LUCK!
Anyone want to tell me what they’re playing this week?
Today I played some Ni No Kuni, worked for 6 hours, played some Ni No Kuni, worked for another 4 hours, made today’s comic, played some CoD and am now updating this blog… I haven’t seen the light of day once. That and the fact that I woke up at 4am has resulted in a very grumpy George. Anyone wanna email me a hug? Or a faster computer? Or more video games?
Fun fact: When playing an RPG video game, name at least one of your characters “Tom Waits” or “Lady Gaga” (or someone else funny and famous) and every time you level, you’ll get a message like “Tom Waits just reached level 15!” and the game becomes instantly funny.
Well here it is, the very first entry in my web comic/blog/whatever this should be called. I’m glad I finally carved out a little time to sit down and draw this thing, being a freelancer can really absorb your hours!
A little about myself: I’m a freelance artist mostly working in online and mobile games. I animate, illustrate and populate games with art, and it’s the most fun I’ve ever had as a professional! I’m engaged to, quite possibly, the most beautiful girl on the East Coast. She’s a crazy cat lady so I’m taking care of three cats in our little one bedroom apartment… I know, I know.
Well I’m sure I’ll have more to say on other subjects later, so keep an eye on this page if the idle rants of an art geek interest you!
