Polar Bear Training: Taking A Break

If you are new to the comic you need to review the Skua’s extreme form of kleptoparasitism.

And no, I’m not taking a break… just Wally is. I’ve been without internet for a few days, and didn’t have any strips uploaded in the buffer. On top of that I’ve still been really busy finishing up some projects. To make it up to you I will get those requested wallpapers online for you. If you have some you’d like to see go ahead and reply with them in the comments or in the forum.

I’ve Got A LiveJournal

Since Wally & Osbourne have a LiveJournal feed, or the comic does anyway, I figured I should have an account too. If you want to keep on top of what I’m doing or any projects I’m working on, on top of On the Rocks, or just bug me, then you’ll find it here at my shiny new LiveJournal.

    Is it just me or is it really weird that Osbourne is wearing a jacket and a beanie?

  • PJ

    He reminds me of Mickey from Rocky…. I don’t know why. Great comic – seems like ages since the last one!

  • Krishna

    hi Tyler: I’ve been working on an “On the Rocks” fan art piece for you. It’s a work in progress right now but you can see it over on my weblog on I just wanted to let you know that I have really been enjoying your work and hope to see more adventures of Wally and Osbourne soon.


  • Kris

    Idea for a wallpaper – Wally and Osbourne as Antartic Rock Gods! Complete with flying V guitars, etc. Nice comic, bye bye!

  • YoSis

    Reading all the comments from the 8th really shows how much we all love On the Rocks and reminds me of what a trully good thing you have going here Ty. I have been following Ty’s work since he was about twelve it has always made me laugh and it has always been really good so it’s easy to take it for granted…but seeing all his fans missing it so…. got me all choked up. Hey Krishna great work with the art piece! And Kris I am totally with you on the Rocker wallpaper!

  • Sten

    haha, funny comic

  • Ashley

    lol, yay!! my dose of daily laughs are back!! have a good one!

  • Greenjinjo

    I’d love to see wallpapers in 1600 x 1200 resolutions!

    Perhaps you remember me from the CAD forums, perhaps not. Ever since you plugged your comic there, I’ve been an avid reader of yours. Love the comic and I don’t know how many times I’ve gone thru the archives, yours man, is an awesome comic. Anyways, I’ve never left a comment before, but I couldn’t let this opportunity pass me by. It would be awesome to have a wallpaper of Osbourne in his cowboy outfit, that sombrero man…simply awesome.


  • Deidre LaClair

    I may be a little late with a request but I think it would be great to see Wally as a penguin and Osbourne dressed as a polar bear….just found the cartoon and I am
    really enjoying it!

  • Tyler Martin

    Yes, Osbourne is indeed pulling a Mickey from Rocky.

    Krishna, that’s fantastic! Do you mind if I post it here? I need to set up a fan art section.

    Good call Kris, and I have lots of experience doing rock bands…heh.

    Thanks sis, my number one fan. 😉

    Jinjo, I’ll see what I can do as far as providing some huge ones like that, heh. Just gets to be so many sizes, I don’t know anyone running that resolution, how big is your screen? What do you do on it to need that?

    Lukaios, thanks for dropping a note, and it is true, a cowboy themed wallpaper or two is way overdue.

    Deidre, never too late and that is a charming idea! Glad you’re enjoying the comic.
