I don’t have a lot to say about today’s strip other than you will see this story continuing next week. Also, that’s maybe my favorite middle-panel of all time. What luscious, amber-hued locks that mofo must’ve had in college! All the ladies swooned during critiques, of this I am certain.
Monday should also bring a Supporter-Goodies update (by the end of the day) and a more in-depth look at how those work in conjunction with our store and donations to the site. WORD/..
Steve Gordon of RDQLUS dropped by the recording studio to discuss critiques. What do you want in a critique of your design? We all have various opinions, but do find some common ground in this fast-paced episode.

I had this wonderful conversation yesterday with my partner in crime, who is producing some goodies for people attending the HOW Conference. I won’t spoil it, but should you spot Donovan Beery and perhaps drop a secret password on him (or perhaps not), you may receive something of perceived value. What I can tell you is, when you see this package of fun, you will find a piece of it is dead sexy in white type reversed out of a black background. I take 100% full credit for this design direction, as the first panel of today’s comic was essentially the entire above-mentioned conversation. Black type on white will always fall to white type on black. Always. It’s like math.
Hello! Welcome back from Memorial Day, I guess. As a working man, 4-day weeks always mess up my clock. Let’s pretend it’s Monday and call it comic day. We’re still going to pretend tomorrow is Wednesday, which it is, so we’ll have a comic then, too. Then Thursday is podcast day, and everyone will live happily ever after.
I want you guys to check out The Brads, if you haven’t yet, and add it to your bookmarks in a folder called “Awesome Webcomics Based Around Design” right after 1PT.Rule. It’s a weekly, but creator Brad Colbow makes up for fewer updates with full-color and an ability to weave the very structure of comics in a web-based format into the humor of his strip that I find myself very jealous of. Check it out.
