Every webcartoonist has his or her own reasons for creating a webcomic. Admittedly, my reasons back in August of 1996 for starting Limpidity weren't the best. Let's see... I had some bad jokes that needed telling and brand new web space with no content. So... I started a webcomic! And of course one thing led to another, and another. Made some long-time friends. Got the strip published in fanzines and small press ventures. Sold some originals and moderated some webcartooning panels at cons. These days, I don't update the strip as often as I used to but reflecting on the past half dozen years or so, it's been a lot of fun.
On a different note, here's an eagle a friend brought back from a trade show.
