A BRIEF RUN-DOWN, CONCERNING THE IN'S & OUT'S OF "JOE AVERAGE"

ABOUT THE STRIP...

Joe Average is a comic strip published daily, thanks to Keenspot. The comic's main focus is Joe, the classic put-upon everyman... The kind of guy who is the "glue of society;" not spectacular, yet not mediocre. The strip deals with his pseudo-depressing exploits and his day-to-day struggles to deal with a variety of everyday situations, ranging from school, work, and the relentless pursuit of Ms. Right, to the Hellish torture that is waiting in line for fast food. That and it's dripping with Aaron's very own Fine Malt Sarcasmô. The main influences behind the strip have been Evan Dorkin, Rob Schrab, Jim Mafood.


ABOUT THE CREATOR...

HUMBLE BEGINNINGS:

I was born in 1976, in Ellsworth, Kansas, a miniscule town in the dead-center of the rectangular state. In high school, I worked as an illustrator for my school newspaper, and have been working as an artist ever since. After high school, I designed t-shirts, logos, and anything else which would give my artwork some exposure. Eventually, I drifted back into the world of newspaper illustrating. .

For the most part, I'd never done a full strip before starting work on Joe Average. Before that, I'd only dabbled in one-panel comics and editorial cartoons. One day, I just felt like doing the strip was the next possible step I should be taking. I was lucky enough to get a chace to realize this goal on the Bulletin, in the form of the weekly one-shots which have been the backbone of the comic for so long.

Well, that should cover most of the bases... Should you wish to know anything else, please feel free to ask. I can be reached most easily by e-mail.
