Alright so i’m going to level with you and say i forgot to post these last night but here are all the questions that were sitting in my inbox and now it’s clean and tidy, hooray! Thanks for sending me nice stuff and telling me you’re excited about Teen Dog, it’s really nice to hear! Anyways onto the asks…
[[MORE]]
internet-haze asked: Hey! Do you plan to do more stuff with Star Puncher and/or that space thing after Teen Dog ?
After Teen Dog is finished i am going to sleep for a million years but yeah after that i’d love to do something more with Star Puncher. I just don’t really know what it is yet though. Star Puncher is kind of an experiment, in that it takes a bunch of well worn superhero tropes and then kind of vaguely makes fun of them? The space thing is really just a little thing i’m doing in my down time, i only spend about an hour on each of them (which is why they are kind of messily drawn/coloured) so i don’t really know exactly what i want to do in regards to that whole thing, I do have a story for it though so we’ll see. The main thing i want to focus on after Teen Dog is Fantasy Pals though, i have a lot of stuff written for something in that universe that i want to explore a bit more, for sure. SO yeah i don’t know what i’m going to do after Teen Dog really, the future is exciting and scary but mostly exciting. 

spacegirlexplorer asked: What kind of studies help you with your comic making?
I never really studied anything specifically in relation to comics outside of general art/illustration stuff so everything i know about it i picked up by reading and then in turn drawing comics. Thats why so many of my early comics are terrible and i get anxiety when i look at them! Not really but also kind of really! 

gay-boys-in-suits asked: moooore i wanna learn about the war!!! do it or ill write fan theories! q_q
I guess this is regarding the space comics and not an actual war. I’ll probably maybe do some more soon so you might possibly maybe learn more about the war… eventually?! You should write your own fan theories as well though, just for funsies. If you do want to learn about real wars then your local library is a good place to start or your local computer with the internet on it. 

lauriesafari asked: When Teen Dog is inevitably turned into a Cartoon Network televised Hanukkah special about the meaning of friendship… can I play the voice of the skateboard?
If there is ever a cartoon network teen dog hanukkah special about the meaning of friendship that features a talking skateboard then yes of course you can. Laurie! I mean it WAS the role you were born to play! 

griffindorito asked: how exactly does boom! studious work? and is there an easy way to read timecowboy or is it not a comic?
Well Boom Studios is the publisher who are putting out Teen Dog. They are also responsible for the Adventure Time and Bravest Warriors comics as well as the always amazing and perfect Lumberjanes! Plus like a million other awesome things. As for Timecowboy, thats really just the name i use to collect all my comics in one place, I’ve never made a comic featuring a time travelling cowboy although that was one of my very early ideas for a comic but it never really went anywhere. Then i just started using Timecowboy as a name?

enzafantasia asked: I loved your comics on Gumroad. Are there other your works around the internets (or on paper maybe)?
Thanks for checking them out. Teen Dog #1 comes out on september 10th so go to your comic shop and preorder that because i’m super proud of it and think it turned out really well. Aside from that not really, I have two prints over on the Telegraph Gallery website which are hugeeee and beautifully printed. David and Kate are the coooolest. 

adamshaikh asked: Hi there! I’ve recently started getting into Pixel Art and Graphic Design, and was wondering if you could share some pointers after seeing the two awesome space strips you made yesterday. Really appreciate it!
I don’t really have many good pointers, draw what you want to draw? I used to think drawing a lot was the key to getting better and in some ways it is because you get better at stuff the more you do it but it’s also important not to draw for awhile to let your skill diminish a little bit so you can build it back up again. I make a lot of notes and write down anything i think i can use because whenever i sit down to make a comic my mind is like a scene out of an old western movie where the tumbleweed blows down the main street of an abandoned town. So write down stuff, keep a little note pad in your pocket or just write notes in your phone or something. SO in closing, draw what you like, draw a bit but not too much, take notes, eat a couple of meals a day, maybe go for a walk in the sun or in the rain depending on your mood and the weather in your area, if you’re drawing something you like it won’t be a chore, life’s too short to waste time drawing stuff you don’t want to draw. 

lukepolito asked: Is Teen Dog going to be available digitally? I’m excited for it but would rather not leave my comfortable chair if at all possible.
Yep it should be! Lumberjanes is on ComiXology and i can only assume it would be the same case for Teen Dog.

ferociousj asked: Is the spacewoman marooned on that distant planet gonna be okay? I am now fully invested in her story.
She’s been lost in space for a long time judging by the logs and she’s lasted this long despite the crushing loneliness. I’ve got a bit of a story i want to tell with her, it might just take a little while to tell it.

krischunli asked: did you ever make that keita takahashi zine?
I made like 10 and sold them at a small zine store near where i live. That was so long ago though, you have a good memory. I don’t even have the files anymore because they were on my old laptop when it died. Maybe if i get some time i’ll do an updated version of it because it was a fun little project and i’m better at drawing perspective now :P

Anon pal asked: hello! I’m in the US - where can I buy Teen Dog comics?? :) keep doing what you’re doing, Jake. love from Idaho!
Your local comic book store! Or you can get them off the boom! studios website if you want them mailed to you so you don’t need to leave the comfort and safety of your home! Thanks for the kind worlds, anon! love from Australia. 

Thanks for the questions I didn’t proof read this so i hope it makes sense! i don’t think i missed any questions so if yours isn’t here i probably didn’t get it. Later skaters. 

Alright so i’m going to level with you and say i forgot to post these last night but here are all the questions that were sitting in my inbox and now it’s clean and tidy, hooray! Thanks for sending me nice stuff and telling me you’re excited about Teen Dog, it’s really nice to hear! Anyways onto the asks…
