: Gotta Wear Shades
Jan 5, 2007

Jumbo Coolness! I’m sensing a new t-shirt. Or maybe a line of over-sized Wally & Osborne sunglasses. Seriously, you’ll look cool.


Framed Art Sample

I’ve had a couple big projects that pay my bills get pushed back on me. So I need to start seeking out some extra funds to keep food on the table. And you can benefit from this.

First, I’d like to thank everyone that has donated to the Wally & Osborne project. It was so appreciated and there were some very generous donations. Again, if you would like to tip your laugh servant a few dollars to support the comic, just click the little “make a donation” button in the right sidebar over there. Every little bit helps and allows me to give more of my working time to the comic.

Now, to the good stuff, it had been suggested that I sell signed prints, but I decided to step that up a bit, and sell the original pieces used in the hand drawn frames of the comic. There is a limited number of them, and I only do them once in a while, like in today’s strip, so if you are interested then jump on the one you want because it will be first come first serve.

But so that anyone that wants an original Wally & Osborne piece of art from me can get one, I’m making myself available for commissions, something I seldom do. You pick any frame of any comic, and I will create you an original hand drawn rendition of it. I’m still getting this set up but you can start ordering right now!

  4. Hannah says:

    hey people
    or just right now its Eric…
    but anyway I think you should definately make that into a wallpaper.
    that would be awesome.
    you should also make a wallpaper with Osborne in his
    polar bear training outfit.
    this reminds me of a picture one of my friends
    drew for me that said only cool people wear shades
    then she drew a penguin with shades.
    its awesome.

  13. BriGuy says:

    I love what Osborne says in the third panel: “I’m not feeling it. Are you sure we look cool?”

  14. Phizlo says:

    I wonder, where did they get those oversized sunglasses? 😕 And another, what comic is Wally reading? 🙂 When I wear shades, I always feel the coolness. 😉 Cool original art! 😀 I really like it!

  15. Phizlo says:

    It would be cool to have W&O shades! 😀 I bet I looked cool in those! 😉

  21. io says:

  22. Tyler Martin says:

    Yeah, he’s slightly different than other adelie penguins as well to make him a little unique.

  23. Spiderwick says:

    wen penguins call to each other other penguins know who is calling because they can recognize the “voice” of the other penguin
