The Age of Nerd! My ridiculously nerdy comic series.
I was feeling a little frustrated with projects and work or lack thereof the other day and so I decided to do something for myself. I’ve come to learn that when I get bogged down with work frustrations, the best thing is to take a step back and say, “If I could just draw whatever I wanted right now, what would it be?” At the time, it was Galactus reflecting on his eating habits. Thus was born my Age of Nerd project and comic strip. Taking a bit of a cue from my childhood favorite The Far Side by Gary Larson, I started to have a flow of ideas for jokes from Star Wars to He-Man to Jurassic Park to whatever, everything that could be encapsulated in nerd culture. I wanted a broad base to mine for comedy gold and so without limits I mix gremlins and ewoks and popples and whatever. Its been a lot of fun. Hopefully it can turn into something more than just fun!
