Oh, man…it’s Thursday! That means a new day for voting on my webcomic!
Yes, you can vote for what happens next…and I believe you will like the results of this week’s voting no matter what you choose.
This whole Choose Your Won Adventure style is going quite nicely…
Go vote now!
I’ll let you in on a little secret, friends…this vote changes everything.
Another comic post means another chance to vote for the fates of our poor, unlucky adventurers. Go vote now! It’s not called Choose Your Comic Adventure for nothin’!
Be one of the first people to get your hands on Seo Kim’s comical comic Cat Person. An attendee of this past weekend’s MoCCA Fest in NYC, after perusing a preview copy, proclaimed that “It’s hilarious…and I don’t even like cats!”

This Sunday!! Come by and pick up my new book! I’ll sign it and do a lil doodle in it for you.
Oh, man! Get yourself a copy of Seo’s book! She’s pretty awesome, you can trust me on that cause I too am pretty awesome.
I colored my space whale. It’s in my new artbook!
Ryan Ottley is a monster. Follow him and watch him make pretty arts.
HELL YEAH! I am surprised I was able to catch up last week after the very hectic Emerald City Comic Con! Did I see you there? If not, never fear, you can still check out (re: buy) my stuff online!
I gotta say, you all let me down last week! I didn’t get a SINGLE photoshopped image of Rodney Dangerfield on a swimsuit model’s body. I was hoping for something, and now I am spiraling into a fit of depression.
Please raise my spirits by voting wisely.
More Adventure Time BGs!
I don’t post these as often as I’d like…definitely not as often as I should. So here are some backgrounds from season 5 of Adventure Time. I’ll also add some notes for the nerds who like commentary:
The First BG: The above BG has a little inside story to it, back in high school, I was in a lot of bands, and when touring acts come through they would often stay at my parent’s house. And because Utah is a damned desert, they would often show up in near-broken-down vans and campers. I thought I would memorialize those experiences of taking bands to auto shops early in the morning in hopes that they wouldn’t miss their next tour date by putting a broken down trailer in this BG.
The Last BG: While it may not be obvious to most, the drawing above is a loving tribute to one of America’s greatest film treasures: Tremors. The sunken car, the lighter, the homemade bombs… the big hole on the side of the cliff. How could I draw a desert scene with a cliff face and not include some Tremors references?! I could not, obviously!
Normally I don’t just copy and paste our blogs from the site, but…
BLACK AND WHITE?! Yes, last night as I was working crazy hours to get the latest episode of Adventure Time out the door, I took a break to write the following apology:
Hey guys, Derek here. As you can see, there is no new page today…this makes me sad/angry and I am here to give you an apology and an explanation.
Things have been crazy at work! My partner in crime, Santino (the guy I split design duties with on Adventure Time) moved on to another production and we’ve been scrambling to get everything done while a new designer is hired and this makes things a lot more stressful on me; that and I am going to Emerald City Comic Con this weekend and need to finish this episode I’m working on before I leave (instead of over the weekend like I would normally do if there were no comic convention on the horizon).
Sadly, even working all last weekend in the hopes that ECCC wouldn’t encroach into my comic making time wasn’t enough to get all caught up on my Adventure Time duties.
Your forgiveness please!
But guess what?! I worked til 2 in the morning yesterday and stayed up late today to get you as much of today’s comic as I could before heading off to Emerald City Comic Con!I will be replacing the black and white comic with the fully colored page ASAP.
Yes, I am a dedicated creator of web comic entertainment.
You may ALSO be noticing that today’s comic is lacking an Adventure Vote…sadly, with my current work schedule and the overlapping craziness of a weekend convention, Jason and I did not have time to wait for this weeks voting to write next week’s comic pages. So we made a decision to move forward and bring you uninterrupted comics. I hope you can forgive us. Please forgive us.
Go check out the site if you want to vote on how I should be punished for not finishing the page all the way.
We’re thrilled to have Derek Hunter with us this year—he’s an award winning background designer on Adventure Time, and he’s also worked with the Disney Channel, MTV Films, SLG Publishing, Fox and Mattel.
The artwork featured above is from his comic, Gamma Rae—be sure to check it out and the other great comics on his site.
OH YEAH! I’m gonna be at ECCC this year, rockin it out with comics, prints and sketched! Come by my booth HH-06 and say hello. I am super friendly.
Got this awesome commission at #SDCC from @derekdraws! (Taken with Instagram) #GhostRider #DerekHunter
Just stumbled across this drawing I did a couple years back. I am REALLY glad it got posted, cause I was really happy with how this turned out!
Holy cow! Two more pages? Why are you guys so lucky? Why do we love you so much? (Because you make us feel special… thanks for reading!)
What’ll happen next? Vote now!
Guys, for real…drawing AND coloring 2 pages a week on top of work and freelance is rough. But I do it cause I love comics…and I love you. I hope you enjoy these pages. CHEERS!
