I've got my mind on my money and my money on time.

Based on this article in the New York Times, and Back To The Future.

Also, bikes are cool.

I’m a big fan of cycling, and people always wonder why. So, here you go.

Oh, and you can buy it as a poster.

12 Reasons you should read this chart: read this chart twice.

A little back story:

Zach “Zach Weinersmith” Weiner was looking for someone to help make his idea for this infographic a reality, and I was lucky enough to fit the bill thanks to some work I’d done with College Humor and, yknow, charts. So to be clear, Zach wrote this start to finish, and I did the design work to make it look awesome and real and stuff.

It went up on SMBC Comics earlier this week, and since has showed up on Slate! Oh, and Ezra “BAMF” Klein tweeted:

Of course if you’d like to buy this chart as a poster, you should click here and make your dreams a reality.

So if you make webcomics and want to make a chart together, apparently you should talk to me.

Some would say this is already true. They are a bunch of lucky shifs.

10 Shifs = 1 Fluck.

Wow, so much to talk about!

The System at SPX This Weekend

Yep, you can find The System at SPX, the Small Press Expo, all this weekend! Unfortunately, I won’t be there. WHAT you say? What kind of RIDDLE IS THIS!? The answer is simple. I booked a table at SPX but then found out I had a wedding to attend. What’s a comic artist to do when he doesn’t have anyone else to fill in for him? What anyone would do. Ask the most notorious commenter on the site to fill in: ROSSMOM.

If you are attending SPX, be sure to stop by Table G4 where my parents will be happy to sell you prints, shirts, and comics from the HilariAwesome.com store. They’ll also happily tell you embarassing stories about the time my brother pooped in the corner and tried to blame it on me. It’s a real win-win.

Also at SPX on Saturday night is SUPER ART FIGHT. More info here!

Site News: Back Button Fixed

That’s right! After MANY emails and tweets, the great developers from up on high have spoken: A working “previous comic” button from the homepage! You can now use it at your whims. Next up is fixing the size of images in the RSS feed, which will happen soon.

Why the lack of updates?

Finally, a quick note about the updates. I was hoping to put together a heartfelt and insightful post about what’s been going on over here at The System, and I still plan to, but for now the quick answer is this. I’m starting a new design firm and have been busy with some tough decisions about grad school. I’ll expand from there later.

Have a great weekend, all!

The System 415: Life’s Paradoxes

If you’re going to be coming by Intervention Con this weekend (and if you’re in DC / MD / VA area you should) here’s a quick run down:

I’ll be in Artist Alley at booth 77, right between Super Art Fight‘s table (I’m not working the table but I’m a part of the show) and Caf-Fiends. Don’t know who Caf-fiends are? Here’s a pic of them that I took at our joint Otakon table last year:

They’re good people. For the full table chart check it out on InterventionCon’s site here.

If you want to catch the panels and programs I’m on, SATURDAY is your day of choice. Super Art Fight is 6pm at the con, with another R-rated “Rules? What rules!?” kind of late night show at 10pm. Both should be amazing, so be sure to come by. Full programming schedule is here.

The System 177

True story.  I guess bike mechanics are just like car mechanics in terms of always needing more than you thought you needed.  What got me was the guilt that went along with it.  Like if I didn’t re-bear my ball bearings the bike would be mad at me.  Not to mention additional guilt for using my bike year round and not taking better care of it.  Would they rather I didn’t use it at all?

Remember, shirt preorders through this Friday (April 3rd)!  Do you want a Jimmy the Murderdog shirt of a HELL Vetica Shirt? You know you do.  If you order now, it is $18 total including shipping!  All shirts are American Apparel 100% cotton and 120% awesome.  Be the first on your block, and then buy ones for the rest of your block!  Nothing makes you a trend setter quite like buying things.  Preorder now, before it’s too late!
