candy kiss

Wednesday, May 23rd, 2007

Last week with all the eye drama, I forgot to mention some recent press.� There’s a lovely review of GingerDead and Friends over at Wednesday Webcomic Review.� Also, Matt Newton wrote an article on webcomics for his local newspaper: The Herald-Mail.� I’m quoted as if I’m someone that matters.  It’s a riot. 😛  Thanks Matt! My ego loves you lots.

I don’t have anything interesting to ramble about so I’ll spare you.  Let me just say thanks for the well wishes last week.  My retina is settling back in nicely as far as i know, so yay!

See you next week.

    That’s disturbing on one level, and somewhat cute on another.

    Peppermint kisses
    From the one that he adores
    Isn’t that so sweet.

    hope i can post this week!

    Andrew (PerhapsToast), you’ve just captured what is for me the essence of GingerDead and Friends. It’s what I love about it.

    Calan, if you’re mentioned and even quoted in print, congratulations – you’re now eligible for a Wikipedia article under their notorious “notability” guidelines, and the envy of all the rest of the webcomic artists out there. Nice quotes in the Herald-Mail by the way, and for the record, you are someone that matters.

  4. calan Says:

    yay zef, welcome back to the comments world. 🙂

    justme: awww thanks! i guess you’re familiar with wikipedia’s purging of webcomic artists. don’t they know print is dead? ( i jest, of course. i don’t think i’ll ever read an entire book online. i like to snuggle with them in bed and hold them and turn their silky pages and stuff).

    once again, i like it and want to read more.

    Aww Calan, *this* is my favorite comic of all time, by anyone, anywhere. It’s sweet, sweet sweet. You’ve earned your press. /hugs

  7. Seraphine Says:

    I forgot my haiku!

    is this his first blush?
    soon, soon will come their first kiss
    heart follows first tongue

  8. jennifer Says:

    nervousness of youth
    self-image and acceptance
    a sudden closeness

    yuck. too serious. i’ll try again later.

    Tasty Eye Candy
    You are oh-so sweet to me
    I smile as you melt

    Eh.. The last part might not work, but oh well! xD

  10. Gabe Lippmann Says:

    Lovely job. I hope he has extra mints.

  11. NobleSavage Says:

    When writing a story on webcomics, I couldn’t forget about Gingerdead could I?!

    I like how your eye trauma has carried into your art this week. 😉

  12. Craig Says:

    Wow, it’s rather cute, she does however, have a rather large tongue..

    (This is my first comment on a webcomic ^_^)

  13. calan Says:

    Welcome Craig 🙂 A large tongue is an asset, no? Rawr!

  14. Rodro Says:

    Candy Oculus
    Peppermint now replaces
    Where my eye once was

    it takes a real friend to find something good about your tiny little imperfections 🙂

  15. Starguy Says:

    Everybody say it together now, aaaaaaaawwwwwwwwwww. I’m glad your eye surgery wen’t well and that you are now a notable quotable (I just made that term up 🙂 Good luck with your other eye.

  16. Craig Says:

    Haha, genius, would never of thought anyone to put a comeback like that one. I commend you ^^

  17. Chris Says:

    Holy nuts! I totally had a dream a few years back where this girl licked my eye. She put her tongue into my eye socket and curled it around the back of the eyeball. It felt so good in the dream that I actually wanted to try it… and then realized that some stuff should stay in dreams. 🙂

  18. calan Says:

    hi chris. congrats you just won the award for best comment ever.

    ready for your prize? lean in close and open your eyes…

  19. Chris Says:

    Nothing happened… wait, should I have taken my glasses off first?

  20. Seraphine Says:

    Omuyga, the dreaded glasses smudge! Bravo!

  21. calan Says:

    foiled again. 😛

  22. Luna Says:

    Squeeeeeeeeeeeee! So cute! I magically stumbled across this on google while trying to find some webcomics worthy of mio and i found this! Love it, it’s been added to my favorites =P

  23. calan Says:

    I have a kitty named Luna but she can’t type as good as you. 🙁
