Assure the Return of Blank It

Do you want more Blank It? As adults with children and jobs, it has become harder and harder to carve out time to create. So, we’re going with nature’s incentive. Green. If Lemmo and Aric (me is Aric) can justify the use of their time by getting paid to create, they can make the proper case to their children and wives (one wife each) that they’re not just goofing around in the basement while someone else is pooping in and changing diapers.

So, here it is. Lemmo’s Patreon page. If $500 a month can be pledged, that’s a new Blank It strip a week. For $1,000, that’s two strips a week.

You can force our hand (I know, I keep changing from first to third person. A baby is making me tired). You can assure we make more strips by guilting us with getting paid for doing art.

There it is. Maybe it’ll happen, maybe it won’t. It’s up to you now. Spread the word.

All Good Bands Have Side Projects.

To you, Blank It is a comic. To us, it’s a taxing endeavor that yearns for completion but also eludes us. I say the comic’s not done and I stick by that (I’m not killing this story until Book 2 is complete), but in the meantime, to keep our juices flowing, Aric and I have started another comic called Kaleiope.


It’s a Tumblr, so you may have to scroll to get to the beginning. Anyway, it’s something to satisfy us in the meantime, hopefully it’ll provide you some entertainment as well.

Still Around, Doing Stuff

I’m getting my art chops back, sometimes it takes a few baby steps. One of these babies was contributing a Blank It themed major arcana to The Webcomics Tarot Project. I think you might recognize His Grand Crumbliness.

The Cookie King is of course one of my favorite characters to draw. He is, as my oldest daughter describes “too icky”. Too icky indeed.

Recovery Time

I know our update schedule is spotty, and you guys have been sticking with us. I had some minor surgery this weekend (all is good), but it means I spent most of the last few days asleep or doped on Vicodin. So this comic is still in process, and I’ll have it up when my head is a little less fuzzy and happy.

Pericles in process

Know what I mean, not what I say.

So the website says “Updated Mondays”. But I’m having trouble getting the comic up on Mondays, particularly when summer weekends are so busy. But I don’t want to change that to “Updated Tuesdays”, because it doesn’t solve the problem that I run late. You’d just get the comic on Wednesday. You follow? So, the site says Monday, but you can probably expect comics Tuesdays. Unless I get it done by Monday. Point is, Monday is the target, and I may likely over-shoot it.

I had a wedding and a birthday today, so my inks are only just now getting done. I would expect the comic tomorrow. G’nite!
