Beginning in December 2003, I started a webcomic hosted on
Drunkduck.com called "Oshkosh
and Josh". Since then, my webcomic has developed a modest readership, with over 100 hits
per day, and has recently gone through a major graphic redesign on the homepage. "Oshkosh
and Josh" is basically about a young boy named Josh and his pet puppy, Oshkosh. They
go about their daily lives and interact with other people and dogs and...well, humor and
cuteness are the strong points here. If you want to see it for yourself and leave me a
nice comment on my homepage, click here
to see it.
As you can see, I really enjoy my webcomic characters. Unlike some of the other
webcomics on Drunkduck.com, my webcomic is a labor of love. I feel very good doing
something that I'm not told to do, something that I have my own set of rules for. I can
upload my webcomic whenever I want with no deadlines. There's a little bit of myself in
each of my webcomic's characters, and having that association with my comic, on top of
my reader's associations as well, is what makes webcomic creation worth it.
Of course, I don't intend to have "Oshkosh and Josh" last forever. I see it more as a
"practice comic" before trying bigger and better things. So far, I believe I'm improving
a lot more since I started out. I'm sure once you see my webcomic for yourself, you just
might agree too.
