1985 Notes

I started Dresden Codak nine years ago. Here’s a comparison of the very first strip I uploaded with the last panel of the most recent page.
In 2005 I was a floundering 21-year-old college student with no direction and growing debt. I drew that snake comic in a statistics class I was failing, and on my way home I decided to scan it and maybe put together a website. I thought if I kept doing that, I could teach myself to draw, as a fun hobby.
Since then, this comic has become my full time job (since 2008), and last year I raised over half a million dollars in the second most successful comics Kickstarter ever. I draw what I like, I have fans all around the globe, and most fortunately, I know what I want to do with my life. In those nine years I’ve had countless people from all corners tell me I couldn’t do this or that, or that I was wasting my time trying something that had no future or point. At the end of the day, though, I can only say “I’ll show you,” and I try to do just that.
Never underestimate the power of time, hard work, and stubbornness.

Dark Science #31 - Escalation
Hey, Seattle! I’ll be at Emerald City Comicon March 28-30! I’ll be at the Topatoco booth, #1102. I’ve got all sorts of books and goodies, and I’ll be doing some dinosaur sketches for anybody who wants one.
I’ve had to overcome some serious behind-the-scenes hurdles, but that’s all behind us now. There’s some exciting news regarding the comic that I can’t wait to share in the near future, so stay tuned! 2014 is the year Dresden Codak takes over the world.

Current Dark Science page at 25% zoom, perhaps better explaining why it takes me flippin’ forever to draw these.
