Sir Tillehad for The New Yorker 2009 Contest

Saturday, January 3rd, 2009

Sir Tillehad takes on the dragonHere comes this year’s submission to The New Yorker’s 2009 Eustace Tilley contest! Last year, I had submitted a semi-decent High Tilley, but this year I am much more happy with Sir Tillehad. What do you think? I actually did the inks last year, so the inking style is a bit outdated (I think I’m much better at inking now that I’ve had a little practice). However I colored it just today, only took a couple hours (and a few episodes of Food Network’s cake contests), and I got to implement some cool coloring techniques I’ve been learning. I hope I get to win the lack-of-prize that The New Yorker offers for the twelve winners!!!
*Edit* – Also I forgot to mention there are new wallpapers and banners in the About section, until I figure out where a better place to put them would be….

Upgraded to New WP!

Wednesday, January 7th, 2009

Hey guys, I’ve just this weekend upgrade The Glass Urchin to the new WordPress! All by myself too!! >.> (many thanks Bree!)

My RSS feed should finally be working *gasp*! So now you can subscribe, or whatever it is you do with RSS feeds. *has no idea* But anyway, enjoy! Please let me know if you guys find any more buggy things, I’m going to be trying to iron out the kinks in the site and maybe get something more of a nice aesthetic to the site (now that I have free time for the first time in a while!). And, as I am horrible at writing styles and fixing code, any help is much appreciated. Thanks for reading!

Who Are You Talking To?

Why, my cute little cameo dolls of course!

The Glass Urchin got a great little nod from Frumph and Duncebot on Anomaly, although I’m not sure anyone else recognized our spikey-pog heroine (who would totally make a lovable, cuddly doll). There are two more cameos besides myself all crammed into this one strip – check more of Anomaly’s strips to see some more colorful characters, cameos and otherwise!! Thanks so much guys! I hope to see more from the both of you on Anomaly!
