today's comic! <--- click that link

The technical difficulties will be worked out soon. Regardless, these animated records of my drawing process are pretty cool I think!
So get this. My name is Nathan Burgess, right? Well, I googled "Nathan Burgess comics" to see if I'd show up. I indeed found Nathan Burgess's web comic. BUT IT'S A DIFFERENT NATHAN BURGESS. Maybe the web comic community is way larger than I imagined, but this coincidence seems improbable to me. Not only that, but he also lives in the Northwest. You should check his comic out, it's pretty funny.

technical difficulties

the comic is here <---click that link

My new operating system is not compatible with my version of photoshop. I also brought Rose's scanner into my room but that's not working either because we don't know where the software is. So I had to try something different tonight.

I got two of my wisdom teeth removed today with only local anesthetic, meaning I was fully conscious. It was so awesome! Luckily I have two more, so I can go back in when I save up enough money!
I just converted my keyboard to DVORAK and it's taken me like 30 minutes to type this.

Also, here's a photo of me at Stumptown. On the right. Just so you know I was really there.

bus guy

This was a real interaction I watched on the bus.

Notice how my panels on the right slowly scrunch inward as the comic progresses. That always happens when I draw with pen and paper. I had a theory about it, but I don't think it's true anymore. It involved geometry and the circle described by my forearm as it rotates about my elbow while I draw.

Hopefully I'll have a lot more people reading this comic now! I handed out 100 or so little flyer things advertising it at the Stumptown Comics Fest.

I'm in Vancouver now, and tomorrow is the Stumptown Comics Fest! I made a bunch of little samplers of comics from this blog. Hopefully I will get at least one new reader.
My mom's scanner is a little small.

Also, I drew this picture of Santa Claus in a wheel chair.

I don't realize it that often, but my comics are weird.

Big Frog II

(click image for full size)

As I was drawing this, the subject matter seemed vaguely familiar, but it wasn't until about half-way that I realized I've already made a comic about a big frog. I guess big frogs, suns with sunglasses, and featureless doughboys are potent symbols for me.

hand comic

(click image for full size, but full size is way huge. I don't know how to resize on Kira's computer)

I'm in Portland right now and I decided to try something a little different. The panel borders are my veins!

I have to do more things I enjoy. I'm so sick of wasting my time on stuff that is dumb that I don't care about. I'm so genuinely passionate about so many things and I need to incorporate them into my life.
