Today’s incredible guest Strip comes to us courtesy of the singular Eric Crowe! Eric is one half of the genius behind The Hat and Fat.
I love today’s strip because it’s one of those oh that’s a brilliant idea why didn’t it occur to me! I think that’s what some of the best guest strips can do! Take a great step back and an outside perspective to show you what you might just be missing. Eric don’t be surprised if this becomes a running gag in the strip cuz I think it’s brilliant and has a wealth of opportunity.
The Hat and Fat is one of my favorite follows since these guys started their comic man you can see their progression, and if you plotted it out on a line graph? That baby would go straight UP! They improve with every strip (writing, art direction, side projects, you name it these guys are creative dynamos)! And that’s saying something because I have dug the look and feel of the strip for quite awhile. You can really just feel it all coming together, I wouldn’t think that I could enjoy a strip about cannibals but I do I dig it. I actually root for them. I discovered their strip when I joined in on anther of their incredible ideas the game of “Webcomic Tag” and they’ve been very good sports to support our #5thpanelguest project (check out one of mine over on their site here)
Eric also recently participated in the #30 characters challenge this year! (go check out his character designs I’m excited to see what’s coming from all this design work!)
You can find these guys all over the place! And you should go check them out beyond being creative geniuses they’re just fun to interact with and I’ve really enjoyed getting to network with them this past year!
