Important Note on Scheduling

For the next 4-6 months, I’m going to reduce the update schedule on DRIVE. Until we wrap production on STRIPPED, the schedule for DRIVE will change from every Thursday to “most Thursdays”. Rest assured the strip’s not ending or going anywhere…it’s just that we may miss a Thursday or two.

It’s a bummer, admittedly…but I have to acknowledge the elephant in the room: Producing a feature-length film is a huuuuge undertaking, and is going to monopolize my schedule until we finish it. And rather than continually disappoint DRIVE readers, I’d rather be upfront about it, and explain the reasons why.

See, right now in my professional life, I have two “jobs” and one “hobby.” SHELDON, as my main job, will continue to come out every weekday on schedule…as it has for the last 12 years. That’s a promise I’ve explicitly made to my readers, and I intend to keep it. Similarly, STRIPPED, as a project that was publicly funded under a huge auspice of trust, is a job that I’ve promised to complete.

But DRIVE is a different animal. As I’ve always said, DRIVE is a gift I’m giving myself. And in a time of immense schedule crunch, it unfortunately becomes the project that will have to take the temporary hit. But because I love the strip so much, I can assure you DRIVE is not going anywhere. It’s just that, over the next 4-6 months, we may miss a Thursday, here or there.

So that you’re not continuously refreshing your browser every Thursday, might I recommend one of two things:
1.) Sign up to get new DRIVE strips in your e-mail.*

2.) Add the DRIVE feed to your RSS reader.

Original Sheldon Art for Sale!

This is the ORIGINAL SHELDON ART is a nice little summer tribute! The cardstock itself measures 14″ x 5″ inches, while the drawn image is roughly 13.5″ x 5″ inches. It’s drawn in lightfast, archival inks on acid-free, vellum Bristol stock. There are no mistakes or corrections in the artwork itself, so it will frame up especially nice.

This original art will be shipped for *FREE*, anywhere in the U.S.A! (And just a flat $5 to any point outside the U.S.A.)

For the lucky Sheldonista who snags the artwork: This piece can be signed and personalized at the winner’s request. This could include a personal note like: “To the coolest person I’ve ever met, with thanks for saving my life from sharks that one time: I totally owe you forever. All my love, Dave.” Something like that. Or maybe something totally different! Maybe you’d prefer it to say “a T-Rex” instead of “sharks”. TOTALLY YOUR CALL.

Anyway! I’m starting the bidding at one penny, as I’d rather leave it up to you to decide what it’s worth. And shipping is free within the US! So if you’re interested, head over and throw your hat into the ring!

Drive Update

With the STRIPPED drive ending today, my work life got a leeeetle buried in admin stuff, as you can probably imagine. It’s my hope to have this week’s DRIVE up tomorrow, as it definitely won’t make it up today. So! With apologies, let’s all meet back here tomorrow for DRIVE and s’mores.

Also: Who’s bringing the s’mores? Have we established that, yet?

Old Russian Sayings

I like to think, when I hear Nosh sharing old Russian sayings, that these might just be things people said to him, once, in passing, on the streets of Moscow, that he internalized as “old Russian sayings.”


Do you guys remember the strip about wild buffalos eating marshmallows? Well, Sheldonistas John & Laurie S. did, and forwarded me this awesome pic, today, with the attached note:

“We went to the Olympic Game Farm near Sequim (WA). It is a wild animal park but a lot of the animals have been used by Hollywood in movies. You can feed the animals bread from your car window as you drive through. They recommend when you drive through, you keep moving through the elk and buffalo herds or they surround the car and start nudging it for bread. This one (see photo) reminded us so much of your Yellowstone Sheldon series that we had to send it to you.”
