...I'm actually going to start using this site again! You don't have to believe it until you see it, but the site may look weird for a few days while I organize things. Here's what you have to look forward to:
-A new comic from a new contributor--in English and Spanish!
-Desire. Deception. Soap. will finally continue on a weekly basis!
-Choose Your Own Sparrowventure will be updated twice a week!
"Egg" by J. Brent Hill
Many have noticed that we've been pretty inactive here on Brown Sparrow Art lately. We're hoping to change that, and part of that is simplifying the format of the site a bit. We're not finished yet, but hopefully you like where things are going! If you are actually on this site reading this, you are amazing, and we love you so much!
-Brent & Erika
Yay! A baby! Though we'll return to his epic paternity saga, I know what you're all wondering: WHAT IS THIS BABY'S NAME?
We don't know! That's where you come in.
Fran and Arthur are feeling indecisive about names (Arthur's feelings toward this child are...mixed...), so they're putting it up to a vote, and they need you! Submit your ideas for Baby Von Schleppen's, and then we'll put them to a vote*. Feel free to include up to two middle names--all the cool kids are doing it.
*We reserve the right not to let you vote on a name that we don't like. If you submit "Prince Poopy-Muffinpants" as a name, we're just going to pretend it never happened. Though Prince Poopy-Muffinpants has a nice ring to it...
Okay, it probably won't save your life, but I think you'll love it! This button links to our new feature: Choose Your Own Sparrowventure, and we hope you will be a part of it!
This is our new reader-generated comic! Simply add a comment after the current panel telling us what happens next! It can be anything (as long as it's appropriate for a family friendly website). ALSO, I (Brent), do not have to draw every panel, so if you want to draw it yourself, just note it in the comments!
It's finally here! This is the last installment of Alien Advertising (at least for the foreseeable future). Click the button to the left for older panels!
***Choose Your Own Sparrowventure will begin on Saturday, June 9th!***
A note from Erika: Hello Von Schleppen fans! Thanks for continuing to follow this story, even after a months-long hiatus! While there are all sorts of reasons that going for months without giving you any news of the Von Schleppens proved to be a good decision for us, one of the things that makes me truly sad is that we didn't get to take the time to explore/exploit (are we allowed to exploit pregnancy?) Fran's pregnancy for all its dramatic/comic potential. When we talked about reviving this comic, we decided to act as if time hadn't stopped for the Von Schleppens, which means that we pretty much jumped straight from Fran's pregnancy revelation to her welcoming the newest Von Schleppen into the world. At any rate, this panel was my attempt to squeeze a pregnancy full of jokes into one small panel while still communicating Arthur and Fake-Arthur's reasons for accosting Fran, so I hope that you take a moment to think about all the possible comedic interactions afforded between a factory construction site (they're building a new factory, in case you missed it) and a very pregnant woman's nesting impulses. Think about it, and laugh with me.
