The webcomic that never was.
Back in 1999 I was working as a desk monkey at my College’s tech lab. This is back before the school linked all the dorm rooms into a campus wide network. I spent my working hours exploring the primordial ooze that was the internet. I also discovered webcomics. Sabrina Online and Sluggy Freelance. About the same time I was propositioned to draw a comic for the school newspaper. Big Girl on Campus was born. A slice of life comic strip about college. The strips I submitted were declined and they asked me to do a political comic. I hate politics especially college politics. I had a Geocities account, so I gave it a shot.
Crude drawing, bad comedy, and crude drawing. I can at least say I was there. Big Girl on Campus ran online from early 2000 to mid late 2003. I only finished 52 of the strips I had planned. Now that I’m looking at the strips again, I get the urge to go back and at least redo the dialogue so it’s legible. But no. I refuse to backtrack on my work. Whatever it was that I screwed up the first time, don’t screw up with the next comic.
