This week: More fan art! Another giveaway! Also…Ted!

So, it seems Bigfoot is a bit of a mimic though the skill doesn’t seem to assist him in securing companionship. And, for anyone worried about the wandering Scout, those with a sharp eye will note that he seems to have found shelter.

Now, Ted. Nobody likes Ted. For some, Ted’s a teaching moment. For others, he’s a learning opportunity. Bottom line, you’re not supposed to like Ted. He’s a great example of how not to be. But you cannot deny the hypnotic power of his mustache.


Untold Tales of Bigfoot fan art by Tom Dell'AringaWanna hear something cool? I got more fan art! Out of the blue, Tom Dell’Aringa (writer and illustrator of the space comedy/adventure, Marooned) sent me some wonderful fan art featuring Bigfoot and his own Zed character. It’s nice getting things like this in the mail. I love Tom’s take on Bigfoot and now he has me wondering whether I should put up a fan art page.  (Editor’s note from 2014: I did put up a fan art page and it’s packed with awesome stuff!)

In the year-and-a-half since this page was originally posted, Tom ended up printing his Marooned epic via Kickstarter and subsequently took down his comic from the web. A sharp-eyed reader reminded me the fan art I did for Tom ended up in limbo because of that change. So I’ve come back from the future to post my Marooned fan art here for your enjoyment. So…enjoy it.

  1. I like how Ted the sleaze can be seen to cast the shadow of a monster as he makes his move on the girl. well done.

    • Thanks! The shadow pulls double duty. It’s the ominous precursor to Bigfoot’s goofball entrance, as well as a creepy foreshadowing of Ted’s true character. Nice catch. Man, this is WAY too deep for a Bigfoot comic. -v

  2. I would have loved to see the girl driving the car with scummy Ted racing after on foot.
    (Congrats, Henry!)

    • Oh, he totally deserved that! Maybe I should’ve doled out more severe retribution. Could’ve done two pages on Ted explaining to his wife why he’s four hours late for dinner.

      And yeah, congratulations Henry! Nice to see some comradery amongst the blog followers! That’s heart-warming! Good luck to you on the next giveaway! -v

  3. Wow this one was spot on, I love when something continues the story but still stands so well alone.

    • Yeah, this page was actually based on an early “test page” to see if I had it in me to do a comic. It was a standalone gag, but with a little wrangling I managed to tie it in to the larger narrative and have fun with it. Glad you’re enjoying it! Thanks! -v
