Looks like Bigfoot’s taking Scout through a pretty rough neighborhood. But it looks like he can take care of himself. That’s more than I can say for Scout.

This week, writer/illustrator David Hurley (creator of the webcomic Don’t Pick The Flowers) decided he wanted to interview me for his blog. Why anyone would want to put up with my babbling is beyond me, but David’s a nice guy, so make it up to him by checking out my interview on his blog and his webcomic.

Quick scheduling note: I plan to keep updating right up to the Wednesday after Christmas (12/26), but then Bigfoot will be taking just a short, 2-week vacation while I work feverishly behind-the-scenes. Other projects (and the holidays) have been gobbling up time like a glutton. Soon Bigfoot and Scout are going to encounter some new struggles and I want to make sure that once that train starts rolling I don’t have to put on the brakes. Remember, though, with the update on the Wednesday after Christmas I’ll also be announcing the winner of the holiday sketch card giveaway.

Thanks again to everyone who left such nice comments under last week’s page. And thanks to everyone who keeps coming back every Wednesday to see what’s up with Bigfoot and Scout. You make my week. -v

Last Minute Emergency Note: Ack! It had to be today — Bigfoot update day — when my router decided it didn’t want to be part of the team anymore. So I’ve hoofed it to the nearest Starbucks to upload today’s comic. As much as I’d love to stay here all day to read your comments, answer your emails and tweet the update incessantly, I have to head home to work on other illustrations. If I catch a break midday I’ll stop back here and see what today’s comic hath wrought. Thanks for hanging in there with me.

Thanks for stopping by. I’d love to hear what you think of the comic. Just remember, Untold Tales of Bigfoot is for grown-ups and kids. So let’s keep the comments appropriate.

  1. Poor Scout he’s just ready to find his family. Excellent art as usual Vince and love how this story is unfolding!

  2. Scout is ready to go! Beautiful art as usual Vince and love how the story is unfolding!

  3. Love the comic! It’s one of the two internet highlights of Wednesdays for me and the kids! Thanks for the fun comic!

    • Well, that’s great! You just helped make my day! This is one of the reasons I put this “experiment” online. With people (and their kids) watching me, it makes me try harder. Thanks for stopping back every week! -v

  4. Yeah, poor choice of words there Scout. Better just stick with your new friend for a bit longer…at least until the sun comes up. Vince I am just continually amazed by the heart and the details you put into this webcomic. Thank you so much for sharing your talent with us in this way.

    • That’s nice of you to say, Todd. I wish I had more time to jam some more “heart” into these, but I’m immensely glad people are responding so positively. I’ve mentioned it before, the “Great Bigfoot Experiment” so far has helped me increase my speed a little. Hopefully, not at the expense of any details.-v

  5. Oh Scout! I think that the wide-eyed optimism is in for a rude awakening. I was wondering,how old is BIgfoot? Young adult, teen?

    • I’ve got a special spot in my heart for wide-eyed optimists (and maybe part of that is anticipating that rude awakening).

      As for Bigfoot’s age…Hoo boy, here we go: It’s interesting to note that some indigenous tribes of North America consider Bigfoot a supernatural or spirit being, unaffected by mortal concerns like age and often appearing to convey an important message. Others feel Bigfoot is a physical being, living in the same physical plane as humans and with the same physical limitations as humans.

      So what about our Bigfoot? Is he one of those? Or both? Maybe a little of each? I’ll just say that a bit of Bigfoot’s history, background, and relative age are actually going to be addressed in an upcoming story arc. I don’t want to say too much and ruin anything. But I’d say that our Bigfoot most likely resides here in the physical world with the rest of us. How that world affects him, I guess we’ll just have to keep reading to find out. Thanks for the awesome question and the opportunity to geek out just a little there. -v

  6. Oh, okay, now I think I got it. Brilliant.
