And Now a Word from our Sponsor

Thanks for sticking with us, and for following the unfolding story of Art Chupke. This is Thomas Daulton writing, as your author. There's been a bit of a hiatus for a few reasons, but a big one is that Justin (co-author and artist) has a lot on his plate. You wouldn't even believe what's on his plate, literally and figuratively. We've written ahead a few chapters, by the way, and we have a sketchy, changeable outline for the entire story arc.. so don't worry, the Apocalypse Mom comic is not going away. And above all, this is not a plea for money or something cheesy like that -- "Click the Donations button or your favorite comic gets a shiv to the gut!" Nope, Art's story is a labor of love (although we're certainly not above making a buck off of it)... I'm getting distracted.

Instead, I'm writing this because I've received many compliments on Justin's artwork, so if you enjoy Justin's artwork, then you ought to know about one of his side projects. It's artwork-heavy, and it even involves some crafts. And it also revolves around the Apocalypse, so what better place to show it off than here?

Justin's latest project is called "Open Source Chess":
[We recommend you view this vid in Full-Screen mode so you can see his artwork and read the text.]

Justin and his brother wrote and produced the video, designed the game, and wrote the rules. (Although that last point is trivial because the rules are completely customizable. Get with the DIY millennium, folks.) Apocalypse Mom is a collaboration -- but if you want to get an idea of the quirky ideas Justin brings to the table, you'll understand them if you check out his site. Plus there's a full range of options for participation, from the "Bootleg Special" on up to a hand-crafted full set. Head on over there... and order a gift set for that creepy biotech tycoon who plays chess with you by vidphone from his penthouse in the Tyrell building.
