I've posted my most recent in-progress sketchbook.
It's a moleskine, but it's probably my last for a while. I prefer white paper and a lower price tag. Also truth in advertising. But that's just me, some people (like Jim Woodring) do fantastic things with theirs.

It's probably not the best idea to post this note here, since the people it's addressed to usually only read my stuff on flickr. Anyway, I'll be up and running with new comics within a few days. If you haven't read the flickr-group-only comics, you won't notice a change.
My computer has arrived in Utah (though I have yet to unbox and check it out), so I'll soon be able to scan and send the backlog of comics. I'll go back to one a day, instead of one month hidden on flickr, then none for 30 days.
Thank you for your continued patience and support. You are a credit to your organization, whatever that may be.
Now if you'll excuse me, I have a sudden urge to go play Mario Brothers 3.

A few things I should probably admit to (feel free to harangue me or post your own admissions in the comments):
I've only ever played the original NES Zelda once, and it was a couple of nights ago. So far, I still like Kid Icarus better (though I should probably invest another 22 years of play before I make a judgment).
I can count the number of Star Trek episodes I've seen: 20-ish. And that's from all of the series. I've only seen 3 of the movies (maybe 3. Is there one with whales and nuclear war, or am I thinking of Superman?).
I've never played D&D (though I did roll and draw a few characters).
Aside from a 15-year-old Sega Genesis, I currently do not own a gaming console.
I've only ever seen one episode of Doctor Who. The one where the Daleks finally die and the new Doctor comes on the scene.
There. That feels better.
(I don't mean to imply disdain for any of these things. It's simply stuff I haven't yet got around to, what with all the comic books and X-Files.)

Note: I'm in Utah now.
Also note: new comics (for those of you who have read ahead in teh Foundlings group on Flickr*) will be coming in a few days, once I'm a bit more settled here in the intermountain** west.
*This morning I saw an actual flicker (with an E) pecking away on a telephone pole. Yesterday it was the bald eagles and mergansers of Florida, today it is the flickers and chukars of Utah.
**Or, as they say here, "intermoun'un".

Please note: I did see the article regarding the weaponized hedgehog. Thanks to everyone who notified me.
Also please note the spate of hedgehog animosity in semi-recent installments of the Laugh-Out-Loud Cats. Is there a connection?
Finally, this design is not just for babies. As with all of the stuff I post on zazzle, a variety of colors and styles are available.

Here's a sneak preview of another shirt I designed for shirt.woot.com, which will go on sale in a little over an hour.
If you miss your chance to buy it for $10 (or if it sells out), check the comments there for a link where it will be available for $15 after tomorrow*. If you're not familiar with how the system works, read this.
If this post doesn't make sense (particularly the sentence marked with a *), I apologize. I just drove in from Alexandria VA, and boy are my wheels tired.

I will not be posting any comics tomorrow or Sunday, so here's an extra one for today. Try to enjoy it slowly and in small doses over the next few days so the absence does not sting quite so much.
And in case you missed it, here's a photo of me and John Hodgman, who is in fact a true gentleman (though not a true Southern Gentleman---he had neither a mint julep nor a pencil thin black bow tie, as you can see. He did call me "suh" a time or two though.). Please also note, he is decidedly pro-ukulele and has almost convinced me to buy one, even though my enormity would make the already tiny stringed instrument look comically tiny.

Firstly, #800 is not drawn, or even conceived, at the moment. I try to make every hundredth comic something special and colorful, but the recent ones remain invisible and nonexistent. #800 will be posted along with #'s 500, 600, and 700 at some point in the hopefully near future. You have my word on it.
Second, several of you view these comics through various and strange methods which I am unfamiliar with. For some reason, an unfortunate segment of readers have been unable to view recent comics on flickr. There is a group on flickr which can be found via this link: http://flickr.com/groups/tehfoundlings/ If you join, you will have access to comics all the way through #816.
Third-wise, tonight I'll post some important photographs to flickr which you may enjoy.
