#1: Mrs Sandy

| November 1, 2010 | 0 Comments

I knew one of the things I wanted to do with this challenge was populate the worlds of my two existing comics.  So one character I’ve been rolling around in my head for a while, but haven’t had time to actually create, is Big Sandy’s wife, Mrs. Sandy.  She can be a real battle axe, especially if you mess with her collection of porcelain earthworms.

30 Characters Challenger: Matt Stout

| October 25, 2010 | 1 Comment

Hi friends! My name’s Matt Stout, and I’m a dude that likes comics.  I live in Kentucky with my wife and dog and a baby on the way in January.  By day, I’m a seminary student and mailroom manager.  By night, I draw two comics! My main comic is Big Sandy Gilmore, which updates three times a week.  My second project is called Community Life, which is (mostly) a single-panel comic for the seminary that I attend.  I’m also the co-host of The Lightbox Podcast, a weekly webcomics podcast I do with Chris Flick of Capes N Babes.

"Oh well!"

I’m participating in the 30 Characters challenge for a few reasons. Firstly, I am trying to expand the worlds of both of my comics, and want my main cast to start interacting with characters other than each other.  This will give me a chance to do some great world-building.  Secondly, I just got Adobe Illustrator, and I need to practice using it as much as possible and this is a great excuse.  Thirdly, fun!
