Brief Respite


two weeks off
==================================================================

Thank you for your patience through Itchy Feet Month! Now that I'm thoroughly out of comic ideas and my drawing hand's getting pretty crampy, I'm going to take two weeks to recharge.

The Kickstarter for the card game was a riotous success, so now I can stop pushing it in your face! Hooray! And if you're a backer, thanks very much, it's going to be great.

To hold you over until then, check out this video replay of all 30 Itchy Feet Month comics being drawn:

Back Itchy Feet: the Travel Game - Live on Kickstarter Now!

Have Itchy Feet-style fun with family and friends - new and old!


When you're traveling, you meet a lot of new people, and you want them to like you. Right? Well, put a smile on their faces right away with a card game - not just any card game, but a travel-themed card game based on ITCHY FEET!

Itchy Feet: the Travel Game features:

  • Humorous item cards like the Fake Mustache, Friend Hidden in Your Luggage, and the All-Terrain Unicycle
  • Social interaction - you'll be trading, stealing, and throwing each other off the beaten track
  • 13 countries and 6 different passports
  • 7 characters like the Adventurous Retiree and the Expert Packer
  • Fun for 2-6 players, ages 9 to 9,999
  • Full Itchy Feet-style art hand-drawn by me!
It's the perfect way to:
  • Break the ice with that good-looking stranger in the hostel
  • Pass the time on the plane or in the train station
  • Get the family together for some hands-on good times

The Kickstarter campaign for Itchy Feet: the Travel Game is live, so if you want a copy, head on over and back the project now!

Thanks!

Your pal,
Mal

Itchy Feet Month #1: Foreign Comprehension

It's Day #1 of Itchy Feet Month, where I'll be publishing a one-panel comic every day for 30 days! Don't worry - they're all freshly-drawn, original material. Yes, this is part marketing ploy to get you to check out the Itchy Feet card game on Kickstarter - and I genuinely think you'll love it, if you like this comic - but I also want to make sure you get quality comics on top of it. It's win-win!

See you tomorrow!

Details Missing (Also: Announcing Itchy Feet Month!)

When you ask directions but don't understand the answer


---------------------------------------- ATTENTION KIND READER! ---------------------------------------------

Do you love travel? Do you love Itchy Feet? Do you love having fun? Yes, yes, and yes? Then you might be interested in Itchy Feet: the Travel Game!



Whaaaat?! Yes, that's right, an Itchy Feet-themed playing card game, by travelers, for travelers. I've been working on it with a game designer for the last year and a half, and on August 1st we're launching the Kickstarter campaign.

To promote it, for the whole length of the campaign from August 1st to 30th, it'll be Itchy Feet Month, and I'll be releasing a comic every day! They'll be single-panel comics, but there will be 30 of them in a row. Yes, I am insane. 

So stay tuned - and I'll see you again on Tuesday, with a link to the campaign where you can reserve your copy! Woo hoo!

Truly Inedible

Thai black eggs are gross. Durian is gross. But Icelandic shark meat Hákarl is the worst food ever created

No Hákarl involved, promise.
