For Your Consideration: Follower at the Duck Webcomics Awards

Hey readers! The nominations are open for the 2022 Drunk Duck Awards. Follower is eligible for these categories. I can’t nominate myself, but if you make a free DD account, you can! We will need at least a couple of nominations to make it into the running! 

Drunk Duck is a well-established webcomics platform with a long history and a great community. Follower updates there as a mirror, and so can be included as part of the awards this year!

Here are the main categories you can nominate us for!

  • Best Sci-Fi Comic
  • Best Anthropomorphic Comic
  • Best Plot Development
  • Best Protagonist (Dia)

You can also nominate other comics on the DrunkDuck platform! It would be super helpful to even make it into the running, since it helps boost our visibility! Thanks so much for reading!

Follower is now on GlobalComix

Good news, everybody! Follower is now available on GlobalComix! For now, Chapter 1 is free and ready to read, and the rest of the series will be added soon.

You can also help support the comic by supporting us directly through GlobalComix! You’ll get access to newly finished pages as they’re added, once the rest of the backlog has been added to the site.

#MentalHealthAwarenessMonth: Starving Artist

Hi, my name is Bug and I have pretty severe anxiety! It makes life incredibly hard sometimes, and I am lucky to have supportive people in my life as well as medical professionals who have helped me learn to deal with it. It feels weird to talk about it in a public place like this, but lately I’ve been trying to capture some of the feelings related to it in art, and it seemed like the right time to share some of it.

It took me a long time to figure out that I had anxiety at all, and that what I was feeling all the time (like my brain was going to explode) wasn’t something that everyone felt all the time, normally. With time and help, I’ve learned to adapt to it and strategies to cope with it.

If you are experiencing overwhelming feelings of stress and anxiety: talk to someone you trust, or a doctor, or a counselor. You absolutely do not have to live this way, and your life can be significantly better. You are worth it. There are ways to get help if you need it.

With that said, here is a comic I drew on one particularly bad night recently about the experience of having anxiety and being an artist.

This comic premiered first to members of the Chio Club a couple of months ago! You can get early access to comics like this (and help reduce my stress as an artist) by becoming a member!

Hourly Comic Day 2022

Yesterday was Hourly Comic Day once again! Even though it wasn’t a terribly exciting day, I did like the rest of Twitter and documented my day hour by hour.

And that’s another Hourly Comic Day in the books! Thanks for reading about my very tedious day.

If you enjoyed this comic, please check out my other comic work, which is decidedly less autobiographical and much more wild sci-fi: Follower! The next chapter begins next week, so it’s a great time to catch up on the story!
