ADDANAC CITY Comics~ All a-Twitter

Hank the Heartthrob?

Twitter’s everywhere these days. It seems like anyone who’s anyone has a Twitter account and, boy, are they using it. You’ve got celebrities, newspeople, politicians, and even your average joe logging in on there.

Twitter is also the ideal chill-spot for bloggers and webcomic creators. Anyone worth their salt has made sure that they can relay their latest feelings, ponderings, and opinions instantaneously.

After sitting on the sidelines for quite a while, I decided to join the revolution and see what all the fuss was about. Last week, I signed up (it wasn’t as difficult or mind-blowing as I had feared). Then I went on a search to find all of my favorite people. I’m a newbie right now, but I’m slowly getting the hang of it. I like to let people know what I have upcoming for ADDANAC CITY, and whatever it is I happen to be doing at the given moment.

Twitter’s a great place if you like to be nosy and get up-to-the-minute information on your friends and/or fave celebs.

One thing I have noticed, though, is that Twitter can become very addictive. I find myself stopping what I’m doing just to find out what somebody else is doing. And nine times out of ten, something’s happening. It’s the Land of Instant Gratification; sorta like a ticker-tape of titillating trivia.

I can see how people get swept into it, especially while they’re at work. The ADDANAC CITY comic below depicts such a situation. I hope you enjoy it.

If you are a faithful Twitterer, you can follow the life and times of Hank Addanac and I by clicking here. If your days are as weird and/or interesting as Hank’s, I may end up returning the favor and following you.

ADDANAC CITY Comics~ I Beg Your Presidential Pardon…

Sometimes ya gotta take a break from saving the economy

Sometimes ya gotta take a break from saving the economy

My comic strip character, Hank of ADDANAC CITY, encounters a lot of people throughout his young life. He has an extremely bad habit of pulling pranks on the telephone. It’s a good thing that it appears he has friends in high places, because he’s gonna need ’em.

My fellow cartoonist, Bearman, inspired me to try my hand at creating an Obama cartoon. I don’t know if I did as well as he, but I tried. I don’t consider this to be a political cartoon even though it depicts a political figure.

This strip is, by no means, sanctioned by President Obama nor the United States government. I just wanted to have fun, and attempt drawing something different. I thought it would be kinda neat if Hank and Obama had some sort of interaction. Plus, who knows? Obama may visit ADDANAC CITY one day for one of his famous town hall Main Street stopovers.

Aw, man….the repercussions of that…. 🙂

ADDANAC CITY Comics~ Thank You All!

Stiletto-sharp entertainment

I just wanted to take a second to say Thank You to all of my wonderful ADDANAC CITY readers. You’ve helped make March a record-setting month for the AC website.

I’ve only been creating the weirdo escapades of Hank, Christie, and Tim since August 2008, and the webcomic series hardly has the audience and notoriety of the more popular “big dog” comics like Penny Arcade and PVP, but it’s been growing steadily month by month.

Well, my little unknown webcomic named Addanac City welcomed almost 9,000 visitors this past March with over 100,000 hits and page views. That may not sound like much, but I’m well-pleased. After all, the site received less than 2,000 monthly visitors during its initial release. I just hope that everyone who stops by each day will continue to enjoy reading Hank’s comedic situations.

Once again, thank you all very much for your support!

ADDANAC CITY News~ Do You Like To Draw?

See? Drawing pictures of Hank enables you to pull all the chicks.

See? Drawing pictures of Hank enables you to pull all the chicks.

I’ve mentioned this before, but I thought it was time to blog about it again.

My webcomic ADDANAC CITY has been increasing in popularity lately. A few loyal fans, not to mention pretty decent artists, have sent me their own renditions of Hank, AC’s flagship character.

Response has been strong enough for me to establish a Fan Art Page on the website. So far, I have received drawings of various styles from people throughout the United States. Each picture looks different, but that’s what makes them unique. I love to see other artists’ interpretation of Hank Addanac.

I want to see your drawings of the ADDNAC CITY characters. You will have a chance to get your artwork posted on a comic strip website.

All you have to do is:

~Draw a picture of something Addanac City-related. You can draw Hank or any of the characters from the AC comic strip series. It can be in black-and-white or color. Do your own version of the characters in YOUR style. NO tracing or drawing a panel exactly as I have already done. I’m lookin’ to see YOUR style. I see mine too much every day. 🙂

~send the finished file in the form of a .jpg, .bmp, or .gif
Files should be no larger than 600 kilobytes (the smaller, the better. I’m workin’ wit’ a 56k modem, people).

~send your art file to addanaccity@gmail.com
Use FAN ART in the subject line.

I will pick my favorite entries and post them in a special section on the ADDANAC CITY website. I will be adding more artwork as I receive and approve them, so be sure to keep checking the site to see if yours (or your friend’s) has been selected.

Addanac City FAN ART is open to all ages. You aren’t being judged, so don’t worry about if you think you can’t draw as well as Joe Blow up the street. If I think it’s cool, it’s goin’ up on the site.

If I pick your art, I’ll give you credit underneath your picture with your name (or first name and last initial if you crave anonymity), so be sure to tell me your name in your email entry. And the way you spell it is the way I’m gonna spell it, so be careful. Also, include your age so you can inspire your peers.

And to all you folks out there who create webcomics, feel free to throw something my way, too. I’d love to see your rendition of Hank and the gang. If I pick yours, I’ll be sure to throw you a link to your website underneath it. So, let me know what that is in your entry, too.

Well, I think that’s all. Oh, yeah! The place to be to read some of the funniest comic strips out there seven days a week is at Addanac City.
If you have any questions, just hit me back here or at the email address supplied above.

Thanks, and I look forward to seeing your creations!

ADDANAC CITY Comics~ Hank’s Taking Over

Nothing comes between her and ADDANAC CITY...

Nothing comes between her and ADDANAC CITY...

Boy, it seems like Hank is everywhere. The little seven-year-old terror is wreaking havoc all over the internet. I love drawing the tiny tyke, but this is one kid that I would never wanna meet nor could I tolerate babysitting him.

Hank has done it all, from giving his teacher a live beehive to almost getting his father castrated for mistaken adultery. He’s also left his best friend hangin’ after breaking a neighbor’s window. Yeah, Hank’s a handful, and I’m so glad he’s just an imaginary character.

We can all have a ball laughing at his zany antics as we give thanks to above that we don’t have to deal with him in real life. If you know a kid who’s kinda similar to Hank, all I can say is: “Dag. I’m sorry.” 🙂

As an adult, I’m thoroughly enjoying the advancements in technology that are taking place in the world nowadays. I’m just thrilling myself silly texting and sending photos and emailing and doing all sorts of wondrous things with my computer and cell phone. I couldn’t imagine what it would be like to be a kid and have access to all that. I’d probably find some way to cheat in class (not that I condone any such malfeasance). Boys today don’t even have to ransack their parents’ room to find Dad’s old stack of Playboys anymore. It’s all right at their fingertips (get yer minds outta the gutter).

My kids trip out when I regale them with tales of days of yore about telephones that used to have cords on them and how you had to have your phone conversations wherever the phone was kept with whomever was in the room. And don’t let me get started with them on the blessing of owning an Atari 2600.

I know they roll their eyes at me like I did my grandparents when told of the days of walking to school. Times have changed, but I’m doing my darnedest to keep up with those cats and their hep ways.

Gah…I feel so old. Let me get back to watchin’ The Price is Right.
