Well my dedicated readers: We did it! As a team! Where I did all the work! Made it to 25 episodes of Starbun. Got there faster than I expected.
However, I have some saddish news. For you. I am going on vacation. This means Starbun will be considerably less frequent. I won't have access to a computer very often, so for the next month or so Starbun's will be rare. I will try and get something up at least every week. Episode here...fan art there...other treats. A guest artist is in the works too!
When I get back to Vancouver in July I hope to get right back to whipping up Starbuns. Also I talked to the president of the internet and he said that he would grant me the option to have a real starbun website! Wow. So maybe that will happen.
Anyway. Thanks again for reading and digging and do check back from time to time. I will try my best to keep this little microcosm of starbunnity alive over the next while

Time for another Starbun fan art post! What can I say? People dig drawing the little guy. I know I do. ha ha!
This artist has taken a somewhat different approach to the Starbun character.
A really very uncomfortable one.
Who are you? Why would you take the time to do this?
Ewww. It is so weird!
Generally I would try and give some constructive criticism. Like: The star is wrong and that those orange coffee beans on the beach look stupid and never double click the photoshop icon ever again.
But I can't. Because I am speechless.
So...keep it coming, folks! Always a treat for me.
Except this one.

Time for another fan art posting! Woo Hoo!
I tell you it is such a treat to see your guys' own interpretations of Starbun. I can see that I have a lot of creative readers out there and that means Starbun is reaching the right kind of audience.
A picture is worth a thousand words, so I will let this one do most of the talking.
Couple things though...a little constructive criticism, if I may:
First of all I get the "joke". It is not funny. Kind of means this is fundamentally a failure right from the get-go.
I am assuming Starbun magically granted Ector a buff body which apparently ups his "cool" level enough to warrant getting babes.
Just so you know, sunglasses and smokes don't automatically make cartoon characters cool. I'll use an example: This drawing.
The anatomy on basically anything in this illustration is waaay off. If I can make a suggestion, try going to some life drawing sessions or use anatomy books rather than looking inside of high school duatangs for reference. Also, watch your ground plain here. I think I counted 6. Should be just one. The fact that that box has mosquito netting on one side...part of the gag? Oh, it's shading. Okay...No wait. Not okay.
Why is Starbun an M & M? The star is wrong.
And where the hell did you get "Wicked Dangerous" from? Sounds like faked lingo from an out of touch kids' television series. "Thanx" is spelt wrong.
One thing I will grant this drawing is that the babe seems to have wings. Thus indicating she is a fairy or sprite or something along those lines. This is good. Always a powerful choice. Therefore granting you a few points to help climb out of the vast negative zone where the drawing currently resides.
My friend, you have a long way to go, but with the few pointers I have given...should help get you on the right track!
I look forward to seeing more great fan art! From all of you!!
Keep up the good work and I will do my best on my end too.
