Hallo everyone. It's Halloween tomorrow. So I did this illustration/animation in the spirit of Halloween. My inspiration was a friend telling me about 3-D pumpkin carvings, so after much scholarly research on such academically respected websites such as Google and Wikipedia (there exists a Predator pumpkin, and it is cool), I thought the best idea for Lex to carve would be something insanely detailed, such as the Coliseum. So yeah.
Oh yeah, here's this week's comic. Halloween costumes. And a little social commentary for good measure.
Alright. Take it easy.

More comics today. My Xbox 360 did indeed die recently, and for some reason I thought of HAL 9000 from 2001: A Space Odyssey. That's okay if you haven't seen the movie. I liked about 66% of it, but did not care for the psychedelic drug trip-like flying sequence towards the end that goes on for TWENTY MINUTES. The last scene of the movie was awesome, though. But yeah, YouTube the HAL-9000 scene if you want. I did.
Anyways, I just realized that there are eight more weeks until I give Guten Tag a break for the new year. Once I finish #100, I'm planning on putting a book together with all 100 strips, as well as earlier stuff I did before it was printed in Wayne State's newspaper. Maybe some pages from my sketchbook and production photos? I think it would be a cool little book. Also, I'm thinking I'll have more time next semester to work on strips, so I was thinking about trying a longer and larger format for Guten Tag. I've got other ideas and projects brewing--some with my brother, others with my good friend Sean, so I want to give Guten Tag some room as I explore those possibilities.
Alright, well, I've got some stuff to do. Have a great week.
