Critics Acclaim, “The simple design has the effect of making the characters almost cute and at the same time exaggerating (and also making less horrific) the ultra-violence and other gags in the comic. It’s basically a South Park effect. It works.
This looks like a consistent gag-per-page comic that follows a specific type of humour and style.
Servant of the Servants of God was also the top nominee by popular vote.”
Something Is Amiss…
Turns out we were nominated for “Best Simplified Art” on DrunkDuck.com. Our competitor “KAM” drew up this gem to get us all worked up.
Cute right? Imitation is the highest form of flattery after all. You can see all of Kam’s great comics, (although not as great as ours) at http://www.drunkduck.com/the_kamics/
Obviously it was only a matter of time before we got featured on this site. Best of all was the little synopsis they created for Sotsog.
“The pope in the Servant of the Servants of God is an evil, rotten, unscrupulous, drunken bastard. And that’s just where the humour comes in! He’s horrible, immoral, deviant, racist, murderous, greedy, nasty, lazy and funny to laugh at. He’s often helped out by an almost equally nasty demon and his trusting, innocent and ever faithful servant. The art is very simplified and stylised, in black and white. This is a humour, comic strip format comic. Rated M”
Couldn’t have put it better myself.
I’m working on a bunch of very short stories under the title: Tonight, when they get here, they will regret it.
Just a bunch of stories about regrettable decisions.
Here’s one about craigslist.
Looking for fun, just want to hang out.
I read the printout of the craiglist ad as I boarded the elevator. I had printed the whole conversation. I don’t know why. Proof I was me?
Hey, me too. I have no work of Fridays.
That’s great! Me neither!
Want to chill? I could get beer.
I was still worried though. This was such a strange way to meet people. I don’t even know what he looks like. Is it even a man? I never made them specify! I’m just looking for a friend. I assumed it was a man. His post was so deceptive.
I rang the buzzer. A man answered, thank god, and I stepped in. I handed him the six pack and he nodded. He seemed dull. I followed him into the kitchen. He tossed the beer in the fridge and disappeared into another room. He returned with a box and threw it on the table. “What do you think?”
Fear seized me. I immediately regretted my decision to come.
He emptied the box and delightfully arranged its contents. It sickened me he could find joy in such a thing. But I had already made all the effort to get here, so when he smiled and gestured toward the metal totem in front of him, I swallowed my pride and placed the thimble on GO.
This was a longer one. Most are even shorter. Its been lots of fun.
Thanks for reading my stuff. This and our comic.
By know I’m used to Connor’s spelling.
Well… know he fixed it, so this doesn’t make any sense… but his last post used to say “by know I’m used to his antics.”
He texted me before he changed it:
Co: What did I spell wrong?
Ch: Same thing I did.
Ch: You really don’t now?
Co: No, I’m still looking at it.
Ch: You’ll figure it out. I now you’re smart.
Co: Fuck you.
Ch: See! I new it.
Co: Word must have corrected that on me…
I don’t now how much longer I can work with him.
Connor Signing In
Well Chris is still fucked from getting hit by a car. I knew the risks when I asked him to start SOTSOG with me, and by now I’m used to his retarded antics.
Lately I’ve been playing around with Flash. The SOTSOG characters are a bitch to animated when I have to import everything from Illustrator to keep our stroke effects. Tedious but since I’m just learning the program I need a few small projects to animate till I get half decent. I’ve also been editing the site this week and I feel it’s finally at a point of adequacy.
That’s more or less it for now. Look forward to this week’s comic!
Hit By A Fucking Car
Chris here. and fuck you.
I got hit by a car on my bike yesterday….
Fuck EVERYTHING that occurs after you get hit by a car. Life is misery. It hurts to type. I hate you douchebags at home who aren’t in pain.
I hope I never get hit by a car a again. It sucks. Watch where you’re fucking going!
I’ll post pictures of my bike when I get it back.
First blog post here from Chris (the far superior of our little duo)
Well, we are starting to get ourselves into the swing of things here. Hopefully you guys will start seeing some improvements to the site and we’ll get some funny stuff out.
As a special treat, here’s a little ditty about snails I banged out a few years back. Connor loves it and begged me to put it up. Enjoy!
