A Few Random Things

Friday, July 2nd, 2010

When I intially wrote today’s strip, it was going to be Mr. Maintenance Engineer talking to Morty in the last panel. But then when I was drawing it, I decided to make it Linton instead. But then after I scanned it in, I decided the original dialogue wasn’t quite right for Linton:

Not completely wrong for him, I suppose, but the slight change I made before I posted it seems more in character for him!

In other news, I’ve signed up for a Formspring account, for any random questions anyone might want to ask me and/or any answers I might give! (You can also follow me on Twitter to see at least some of those answers.)

Finally for today, there’s a new voting bonus up, in which the rumormonger with a hat gives Morty his thoughts on the plan to rescue Neap from the Trees of the Celestial Orb.

Make Your Own Station!

V3 reader Tyler Robbins recently sent some interesting fan art – a PDF of a paper model of the station! Download your copy, print it out, get out the scissors and tape/glue, and make your station today! (If you like the way yours comes out, post a picture on the forum!)

In other news, it’s been a while since I put a sprite strip as a voting bonus – so there’s a new one to see today when you vote for Station V3 at TopWebcomics, in which the rumormonger with a hat talks to Morty about the terms of the loan he gave the pirates this week.

The Xcentrikz website, in addition to having the comic, has a lot of interesting interviews with other webcomic creators, and one of the ones they did recently was with me – take a look!

The Edible Version of Station V3

Station V3: The Birthday Cake!

I’m not sure if it counts as fan art or dessert (or both?), but I’d like to thank my brother Chris for making this for my birthday yesterday!

(And it tasted good, too!)

Strange coincidence, update, random news

Saturday, March 21st, 2009

In yesterday’s strip (3/20), a rumormonger added two and two to get 4,376. I had considered several other numbers – like 22, for example – before deciding on a number that included the answer and the phone exchange of somewhere I used to live. Coincidentally, as pointed out by a reader, the asteroid 4376 Shigemori was discovered on 3/20/1987 – 22 years ago. Maybe I meant to do that?

In other site news, I’ve updated the links page, and added another page with links to fellow Palace in the Sky comics.

And in other non-Station V3 webcomic news:

Robert Cook’s comic The Mansion of E recently hit the 2,000 strip mark. Congratulations, Robert!

While there haven’t been any new episodes of PodWarp 1999 uploaded since January, it’s not dead yet! There are more episodes on the way. If you have any suggestions for a future episode, you can post them on the PodWarp forum. Meanwhile, Mark Mekkes and I were among the people on the latest live episode of The Gigcast.

And speaking of PodWarp, fellow PodWarper Ben Paddon has put out a Jump Leads book! Fun stuff.
