MY FAVORITE SITES AND RESOURCES
Comix, Art Gallerys and Points of Interest:
- A Lesson Is Learned...
- Simply amazing! Great ideas, great execution. I love the depth of humanity these two dig into. Not for the faint-of-heart ;)
- A goat, a satanic chicken, some hackers and lots of beer! Currently my favorite comic strip - go back in the archives a couple of years and read up to the present day. I havent had this much fun since Bloom County.
- Electric Sheep
- Astounding! Some of the deepest, most incisive comix on the net. Be sure to check out "The Jain's Death" and "Rush Limbaugh Eats Everything".
- Everything you always wanted to know about...well...Everything! Plus all the entrys (or "Nodes") are hyperlinked to all the other entrys for your convenience. If you feel like you know enough, create your own "Node".
- The Edwardsen Gallery
- Steve Edwardsen is one of the most amazing artists it has been my pleasure to know. His artwork is weird with a capital "W", yet still accessible and moving. He is a great master of Bryce whose pixels I am not worthy to render. He is covered in a rich crusty layer of acryllic both candy-striped and satanic! Go see him melt in your mind.
- Aaron Jasinski
- A unique artist with a very human touch. His people feel like people you know - very three-dimensional, very real, with a lot of heart. His bold brushstrokes and colors do not obscure even the most subtle emotion and character.
- Chad Frick is an amazing animator/artist with a wry and slightly twisted sense of humor. Finally someone has created truly interactive "comic strips". Highly recommended!
- Dragon Tree
- Molly Barr is an extremely creative 3D stylist. You might have seen her art in quite a few places around the Net. Molly's an amazing person who gave my computer-based artwork its first exposure on the Web some years ago at her wonderfull communal SF art gallery Tau Ceti (no longer extant). Dragon Tree is her excellent personal gallery.
- Organic Holistic and Bizarre. These are truely strange and beautifull pages. Fun to explore.

- Absolutely Photographic. This man has got to be my favorite artist working in Bryce today!

- The infinite depths - these images are AMAZING!
- Galactic Geographic
- Travel with Galactic Geographer Karl Kofoed as he chronicles the worlds explored in the pages
of an imaginary "magazine" from the future... The Galactic Geographic Annual for the year 3097. This gallery is an amazing synthesis of science, art and imagination.

- An amazing online comic book with a heavy dose of KPT and a pinch of Bryce.
