This is strip one of Shrimp Fried Riot, a comic I created in 2004/2005, featuring my avatar/self, known in this comic as Octavius.

This, originally started as a project to contribute to a print periodical of comics, created by some of my artistic friends and neighbors back when I lived in Bellingham, Washington. That project, sadly, didn’t bear fruit, but, I kept on scribbling SFR strips as a hobby. It lasted 20 strips, plus a pin-up or 2 and a follow-up comic called “My Own Personal Apocalypse”. (Which I still do from time to time.)

This comic was semi-autobiographical, but mostly fanciful, as, Bellingham, the self-proclaimed “City of Subdued Excitement”, had it’s share of odd occurances, weirdoes and things best left unexplained. This strip is probably the first place that I routinely employed the chibi style that I have taken such a shine to over the years.
With Octavius in this first strip is a chibi version of my best friend, Jesse Dukellis, who, sadly, passed away in September of 2009. I still miss him more than words or even mere comics can express.
