Hello people,

I want your opinion on something. Should I reboot my old comic? I cancelled it off over 3 years ago because it got so draining to draw at the time. (I was also working graveyard shift at Target while going to night school, so I had no energy to devote to this project).

Those of you who haven't read it, go read it and then come back to put in your two cents:
thebobguy.deviantart.com/galle…

But I keep thinking about the characters, wishing I could draw and write them again. So recently I sat down to sketch them up and start fleshing out a new story line. It will retain the characters but focus on Maria and Blix with the rest of the cast in smaller roles. I won't go into great detail about the new plot line, but it will be just as absurd and probably even crazier than before.

Now, here's the pros and cons to this idea:

PROS:
- I get to work on a personal project again (not just fan arts)
- I have a lot of crazy ideas I want to get out there in a comic
- I'd start drawing more and putting out art more

CONS:
- I would probably only be able to update once a week, with my limited free time to dedicate to art
- I'm worried if I get into this and get burnt out again, it will just make everyone lose that last shred of hope in me and my art
- I probably won't finish the "1000 Blobs" project
- Most people really only like my fan arts
- I'm not even the best writer/artist, so does the world really need another stupid webcomic?
- Does anyone even care?


So, please, help me decide. Reboot or let the dead stay dead?

LEGO Space blobs part 2 by thebobguy

Ok. Had to stop and take a break from lego blobs. Wanted to post the dozen I finished.

LEGO Space blobs
Woohoo! Lego space astronauts! Space sets were always one of my favorites. I had to throw a Bob Guy in there.

I have a second set in the works (post 1997 sets).

Bet you thought I was working on a set of Lego Movie blobs.

Blobs Milestones by thebobguy
Blobs Milestones
I had been meaning to make this for quite some time now. Whenever I'm drawing blobs and I hit a new hundred mark, it's a big deal for me. So, I thought it'd be cool to show which blobs had the honor of being a "milestone".

Update February, 2015 : Almost 5 years later I finally finished number 800! Benny from the Lego Movie! This gives you a little preview of what is coming. But it might not be what you think it is.

Update October 9, 2010 : I just finished number 700! The Galactic Manatee, my spaceship in my original comic, Daily Universal Humdrum.

Update August 15, 2010 : I just finished number 600! The Grim Reaper! This one was especially fun to draw, with his little fingers holding the scythe. I found myself giggling like a school girl while drawing it. Ah, but you may be wondering, what set did I draw this for? I guess you'll just have to wait and see!

Star Wars - A New Hope blobs by thebobguy
Star Wars - A New Hope blobs
So, this is clearly not all the characters or outfits from ANH. This doesn't mean they won't ever be "blobbed". Likewise Empire and Return, some Clone Wars and various Extended Universe characters will be "blobbed". I just decided, for the fun of it, to do some sets based on the trilogy (aka Original Trilogy, or OrigTrig as After Hours dubbed it). 

Some favorites on this:
Porkins! And the other Rebel Pilots
TK-421 (even if it looks like Han is saying it when he's next to the speech bubble)
What is thy bidding (my master)
Garindan
Owen & Beru Lars, which I almost left off in the interest of taste

Thanks! I wanted ThatBobGuy because it's where I got the Bob Guy name (many years ago, when some friends of friends finally met me, having heard stories of me they commented "Oh, you're that Bob guy we keep hearing about!")

ThatBobGuy was taken, so I randomly tried thebobguy, and to my amazement it was available! I suppose this is a promotion? Going from "that guy named Bob" to "THE guy named Bob"
