User Data
Hello, and thanks for coming to my profile page. I'm Chris, and I am an aspiring comic artist of about a beginner to intermediate skill level, depending on the medium I work in.

I've come to the site to read some interesting work from the users around here and perhaps post some stuff of my own. My favorite genres (for both writing and reading) are comedy, sci-fi and shounen-ai/yaoi. Any mix of these is a definite plus for me.

When I'm not drawing, surfing the web or playing video games, I study Computer Science and Sociology at the University of Michigan (that's in the United States, city of Ann Arbor). If I'm not doing that, I'm sleeping. >_>

I'm currently working on two comics that I might consider posting here, but I'd like to get them long enough first. If you'd like to see some more of my work in advance, and don't mind the long updates, please visit my DeviantArt page.

EDIT-6/12/2012: I've decided to host one of those comics, Gay Times with Ryan and Jay, here!

EDIT-2/17/2014: Updated my avatar!

EDIT-5/6/2014: I've finished my career at U of M for now, so I'm no longer a student. Now I'm just a software engineer.

@IronDog: Yes, exactly! I intended the Q & A to be a great opportunity to examine some of the more wacky quirks of the characters.
@IronDog: Thanks much! Hopefully, though, we can get back to the humor quick enough~
Hope you guys weren't too disappointed with the lack of questions this time around, I promise there'll be more next time.

But for now--

Next time in the main comic, Ryan reveals the terrifying extent of his Depression No Jutsu... However, is there a new hope for his and Jay's homework???
@R.O.-bot: No problem, I probably didn't expect it either LOL

Also, find four Heart Pieces to expand your heart size and your feel capacity
@R.O.-bot: It's ok, there'll be more Q & A in the page after next :D
No questions will be asked/answered in this Q & A installment, as we have to move characters around. Thank you for your patience~
@Kevin_Redcrow: Lol who knows. Could be the ol' AS, maybe just his personality. Maybe a bit of both.

Or maybe it's Maybelline
@ukk_o96: Oh man, I thought I was the only one who couldn't draw when it's too hot lol
Stealth Update
Been thinking of getting rid of the expected update time in the description; my schedule's to problematic to match it. Hmm.

Next time in Q & A, Jay is excused to make room for more characters to whom you can ask questions!
Tell us where the body is
Next time in the main comic, Ryan reveals his true, sinister motive for wanting Jay around, as their homework continues to wither away due to neglect. Also featuring Munch the Cat as herself!
Companion Cube
Happy 4th of July to my fellow Murricans!

Next part of this Q & A installment will be up soon.
@larrythefairy98: Nah, you're probably right in that there've been small signs before, but, for various reasons, Ryan pretty much gradually acclimated to Jay's quirks and vice versa.

Since you're wondering, though, there was at least one time not long after Ryan and Jay met where they learned a lot about each other, just not the aspects discussed here.
@larrythefairy98: Lol, that would solve a lot of problems, yeah.

But, up till now, Ryan hasn't had a pressing reason to figure out how apathetic Jay is about most things, and why. And of course, Jay's never really cared enough to ask about other people's takes on things (besides his food).
In an ideal world...
I feel an uncomfortable amount of people would intentionally give up the lives of their loved ones for a lifelong dream, Berserk-style.

Next time in Q & A, bonus questions for Ryan from the Associate???

[EDIT: Fixed a typo.]
@IronDog: Stevie will return in Avengers 4: This Time It'll Work
Next time, Jay elaborates about Therise's cooking skills, as he and Ryan continue to do not-homework.
@Kevin_Redcrow: Thanks much for the compliments! About ~60% of the conscious effort I put into this comic goes towards making each character at least understandable, if not likeable, so it's always nice to hear someone appreciates it. I hope you continue to enjoy the comic.

There's a lot of ways you can take the notion that a comic started years ago can remind someone of the world as it is now. I think for now, I'll go with funny, ha. At the moment, I work for a mid-sized business and I agree, the atmosphere is at least pleasant, despite us all knowing what happens elsewhere.

Oh, and speaking of which, I almost forgot I had that map and counter up. I'm glad you like 'em, haha!
Nearly Done
The next part of this Q & A installment will be up later this weekend.
@ukk_o96: My God, it was a setup the whole time!
