Budding Comic Artist

I just never know when I'm going to bump into something interesting to blog about.

Today was such a day.

I sit on the Advisory Board for Career Services at Davis College and we had a quarterly meeting this afternoon. Brian Houdashelt is also a member of the Board. Brian is a alumni of Davis, and he now works there, too. He is also a graduate of the Certified Networker (CN) training. Every month a newsletter is published for the 300 member CN community and a large part of the newsletter is the opportunity for CNers to tell the others in the community about something they've accomplished....something they are proud of.

Brian has been falling down on the job!

What I found out today is that Brian has started a new comic strip that he draws three times per week. It is called Victor. Check it out, the humor is right there. Victor thinks he is brilliant and his assistant proves him wrong quite often.

But my question to Brian is, "Why in the world haven't you told us about this accomplishment? It certainly is worth tooting your horn."

Thank you to everyone who takes a moment of their busy day to check out my comic strip! I derive a great deal of enjoyment in creating the misadventures of Victor Frankenstutter and his supporting cast. ‘Victor’ was created from my love of the old 1940’s mad scientist movies that were always fun to watch. Victor is someone who is passionate about his work and ideas but he just can’t catch his big break. The reaction to ‘Victor’ has been overwhelmingly positive and I am beginning to gain readership from individuals all over the world.

I have a genuine excitement for cartooning and I sincerely hope it shows in my work. I have plans to expand ‘Victor’ in numerous ways in the coming months. If time allows, I would like to also pursue some of my other cartooning ideas I have for future Web and print publications.

Thanks again for your time and interest in my ideas!

I went to the Comic Sherpa the other day and .. no Victor. I guess I missed the goodbye bit.

Victor is/was a great strip. Thank you Brian Houdashelt for so much fun! Its a shame I'll never find out if Victor beats the Hadron Super Collider in the destruction of Time, Space, and everything!
