Rosscott in the Wild: Obsidian Edition (or) Why I Love Being a Webcomic Artist
Obsidian drew me into his comic! I’m the one in the green shirt. Also included in the photo are Marty, Kev and Blondie, Dern and Kendra, Lar and Spike. I hear there may be others. Can you spot them? Post in the comments! LINK.
A Little Backstory of Why I Love Being a Webcomic Artist
This summer I attended Connecticon and got a chance to hang with Colombia’s own premiere webcomic artist Obsidian. I have been listening to him on Extra Life Radio and reading his comic for years, and since we were doing a Super Art Fight as part of the convention, the chance to meet him and include him in the show was like wish fulfillment.
The amazing part about it all is that he didn’t really know anybody (that wasn’t amazing for him, mind you). As such, I met him at the very beginning of the con and got to hang with him and his cohort Lord Ebo pretty much the whole time. I showed him around what the con was like and he quickly fell into the group of webcomic friends that I’ve been lucky enough to form over the last couple of years of convention touring. The great thing about a group like this is all you need to do to join is have a website and be a nice dude (or fem-dude) and you’re pretty much in like Flynn. Next thing you know you have another person to talk to online, another person linking to your site, and every once in a while someone does something cool like draws you into their stuff.
So thanks, O! You rock. I hope you come back to Connecticon or some other convention I get to do, and the Super Art Fight stage always has a place for you.
