Bumhug Parade

Bumhug Parade is my personal outlet for funny and not-so-funny ideas and whatnot. I try to make every page look as visually unique as possible, experiment with mediums and all that stuff. I hope that this not only entertains myself as an artist, but also you as an reader. You'll hopefully never know what a Bumhug Parade page looks like when you load it up, and when it comes to the jokes, well, let's hope they're okay at least.

Name Game

Name Game is a comic about the employees working at a retail videogame store and what they have to put up with for minimum wage. It shows the funny, aggravating, and occasionally disturbing situations these employees would face and the conversations that emerge from them. The scenarios of Name Game are not only entertaining but they are also honest. After months of working at a local GameStop, I know firsthand what it's like to deal with customers who discover there isn't much "power to the player." Being one of the only girls employed at GameStop also made for a unique experience. Name Game shows what we are really thinking while you are browsing the store and un-organizing the walls we spent so much time alphabetizing the day before. With an interesting array of customers, games and store policies, Name Game always has a new story to tell. It exposes that a lot more goes on behind the counter then just trade-ins.

The Escapist Radio Theater

Sometimes a show's just a show, and that's all these five friends want to pull off. With a dilapidated (but functional) recording studio in their basement, Sam and Evan decide they can put together a kick ass gaming podcast and have a great time doing it. While spending the minimum of costs, of course. Is fame on the horizon? Is it even on their minds? Unlikely. Not while they're a bit too busy with their consoles to notice.
