Rehab Exit Interview: Ross Radiation

January 30, 2008

1. Briefly describe your experience at comic artist rehab:

This all sort of came about at a time where I was busier than I have been in the last year or so, it was all pretty hectic… but enjoyable and I really needed to force myself to do some drawing, so it was beneficial

2. What, if anything, did you learn from the program?

I am not good with deadlines… but I can force myself to do anything… and I underestimate how long things take to actually create…

3. Which one of your own comics are you most pleased with and why?

Day Fourteen, the art is a little sketchier but I think it’s kind of funny and it’s slightly more autobiographical than my “flights of fantasy” stuff

4. Which one of your own comics are you least pleased with and why?

Day Twenty two, I think the art was pretty lousy, it was rushed and the idea is no prize-pig either

5. Do you hope to keep up drawing comics after rehab? If so, how often.

Yeah, maybe not every four days but maybe weekly, believe it or not I have already done a page…. woot!

6. Any suggestions for future rounds?

Trophies, man! that’s what we need!

Round Three, Day Twenty-Six

January 26, 2008


What would you do with your life if you were stinking rich?

I’d probably spend more time drawing comics like this…. sad, isn’t it?

Round Three : Day Twentytwo

January 22, 2008


I’m not sure if there is a point to this… I just started drawing it… but I am sure glad I am not a suit, this would be my existence , for sure

Round Three: Day Eighteen

January 19, 2008


A little homage to the type of things one might think about when bored… well, I might think about when bored… three days late… sorry, I’m really naughty

Round Three : Day Fourteen

January 14, 2008


A very busy day today so I haven’t spend quite as long on this as the first few, I guess this is more of a sketchy comic… about a sketchy character… this is my account of my weekend. I can’t believe I spelled FELLATIO wrong … Nerves and tequila got the best of me… oh and the drawing of Kamahl is absolutely dreadful, sorry

Round Three: Day Ten

January 10, 2008


this is a side effect of quitting smoking they don’t tell you about……

Round Three: Day Six

January 6, 2008


Okay, here’s my second ‘rehab’ strip…. I guess it’s a bit depressing…. Finding a dead dolphin is kind of weird though … kind of like finding a dead horse… but not as big… and with no legs or hair…

Round Three: Day Two

January 1, 2008


Well , this is my first strip for this project, I think it turned out okay.

I have decided to do a short series under the title “Brain Bank City” which I borrowed from the awesome schizophrenic conspiracy theory rants of Francis E Dec…. his rants are pure poetry to me , he coined great phrases like “Gangster Computer Gods” and “Frankenstein Brainwash Radio”….

Anyway, this is actually a real dream I had… I have always had very strange, very vivid dreams… I enjoy them! time for bed now! see ya!

Artist Introduction: Ross Radiation

December 31, 2007


My name is Ross Radiation and I have been drawing for mini-comics and zines since 1995. I still do the occasional comic strip but my drawing focus has shifted towards designing posters and illustrations in the last few years. I need to go to comic rehab because I fear I am in serious danger of losing the ability to conceive and write stories, jokes or even simple cartoon sequences. Hopefully my stay here will help get the old creative mucus flowing again!
