First time Here. 'Ello, all!

I'm a Graphic artist and Sam'n'Max had a real profound influence on me when i was younger, it helped convince me to go through art school and get the career i have now. Actually, its the reason i started drawing in the the first place (that, and darkwing duck, but we won't mention that, 'cause it apparantly aint cool anymore.)

I've beentrying to track down Steve Purcell's email addy for awhile(to thank him mostly), but spudvision seems to be down (or at least limited in its functionality). Does anyone have contact info for Steve? email or something of the like?

Oh, and as a side note, there's an illustration done by purcell in the Image Afterworks 2 Indie comics collection (done by professional animators in thier off-time). Its a rendition of some of the characters in another persons comic, titled "eggsucker". i hadnt seen this illustration talked about yet on the forums.

Thanks anyhow and happy to be on the forum.

I'm sure someone around here knows his email address, whether or not they'll give it to you, that's another story. Heh, I still think Darkwing Duck is cool. If you have any Sam and Max related drawings, feel free to post them in the fan art section. Not much has been happening over there in a while.

I hope he trusts you, Metallus. Steve's email sounds really predictable and fake.

No, just out of date. The sketchbook's inside cover says steve@samandmax.com

Now if my ****ing check from OCB would only get here I could go and open my own checking account, and not hear things like "Thats not practical", You'll get bored with it", "Eric put you cloths back on! Was that like 5 naked girls climbing out your window?!?!No No theres 3 in the closet?!?! 4 under the bed!!?"

Permission to call you Eric from now on instead of Samnmax since it is shorter?

Yay, this thread has exceeded my expectations. *makes sure Metallus isn't looking* Now let us raze it to the ground.

I just wanted to agree that Darkwing Duck, is in fact cool. I saw every episode as it aired.

Steve gave out a newer email address, which I believe is steve@samandmax.com, in the new sketchbook which was released recently.

Yeah, Launchpad was Scrooge McDucks pilot AND Darkwing Ducks!

Bah, I'm probably going to Eau Claire. If my performance on every other standardized test I've ever taken is an indicator of anything I most likely got a high enough ACT score for them to waive that stupid World Language requirement.

Rice University is my first choice, did early decision. University of Texas is my back-up, guaranteed to get in there.

I'm just hoping they overlook the fact that I only took one year of German (The teacher was an obnoxious fairy whom I hated), otherwise I'll end up going to Hibbing Community College for a Semester. I'd prefer not to do that because they don't really have a Mass Communication program at all, all you can do is take your basic classes and take everything else elsewhere. DINFOS takes care of some of my Journalism requirements but I'd like to not have to screw around so much.

You know that just about all famous colleges send out junk mail to everyone they know is going to graduate?

And if you go to Rice, you better not become like their radio DJs. Artsnob ****s.

College radio stations just plain suck. Hell I got a letter from MIT I'm not really in that realm at all.

I know, but I still feel special. Some crap college offered me like an $75,000 scholarship, but I'm nonsensical and am going to pass on it. Coincidentally, Rice is my favorite radio station, but I won't argue against the DJs being artsnobs.

They have a fencing club where all weapons are welcome and a sci-fi/fantasy club that does like DnD and stuff. I hope I get in.

Rice gets paid by major record labels to play fake indie songs. Sure they play good stuff. But that really pisses me off. That and the DJs.

I had to sit through a crap presentation from Mesabi Range Technical College yesterday. They acted like I'd shot their mothers when I told them I wasn't interested. I refused to fill out their information card.

Hehe, I'm in Sculpture I because I need a fine art credit to graduate, and we had a presentation the other day from the prestigious Art Institute of Houston. Egads, that was dull.

I made one of those at scout camp. Then I threw it in the lake. I was supposed to make a pot I think.

I got in trouble in home ec back in Middle School for making a bread stick with a "knob" on the end of it and twirling it around in front of my crotch. Some lesbian ratted me out and I got ISS, and was warned to never sexually harass anyone again.

That's such a waste of talent, Milo. Should've found someone who sleeps with his mouth open and permanently derail the foundations of his sexuality.

How can someone sleep with his ass open? I already know of course, I just want to have the pleasure of hearing you explain it, preferably with an array of anatomically correct diagrams.

Haha, you know the Art Institute videos they show you are not from students in Houston, that's all stuff from Pittsburgh.

I think though if there was a brochure, my artwork is supposed to be in there somewhere. So I hear. I don't know.

They told us that one kid from our school went on to work at Blizzard, and the presenter tried to make it a really cool selling point but no one cared. She prefaced it with something like "for all of you nutty World of Warcraft people...".

The next presentation we have to sit through is the Minneapolis Art Institute, have no interest (Not my field) in going there myself, bu I think I'll be nicer about it then I was with Mesabi.
