General Alfredo Afro Comic FAQ
Q. Are ANY of your comics true?
Q. What kind of douchemissle draws a WEB COMIC?
Q. Don't one worded answers make you seem like a clump of goat discharge?
Q. Wait, are you also Rawrb that is in Psychostick?
A. Yes. I can do more than one thing. I can do two things, but no more than two. Two is all I can do.
Q. Is it just you working on this web comic/blog thing nonsense?
A. Yep. Occasionally I'll bounce ideas off of my band, or they'll come to me with an idea. I mostly ignore them though because their ideas really suck.
Don't worry, they'll never read this page. They don't even read my comics. See what I put up with?
Q. Are you gonna sell these comics in a book someday?
A. Book? Isn't that something on the iPad? An "app," perhaps?
Q. Can you draw me or my pet? Perhaps my great-grandmother climbing a pyramid?
A. Yes! I can DRAW YOU!
Q. Is the name "Alfredo Afro" some sort of racist joke?
A. ABSOLUTELY NOT.
Q. One of your comics has offended me.
A. Good. That means I'm doing something right.
Q. I think your comic might be about me when I met you guys on the road.
A. Don't think so.
Q. How do you come up with ideas?
A. I do stuff. It's that simple. I preprogram my brain to constantly crank out dumb ideas. Writer's block is never really a problem because there's so much out there to poke at with various e-twigs.
Q. Woa cowboy - is shipping REALLY free for these things?
A. I wouldn't call it "free." It's included with the price of the comics.
Q. Hey Rawrb. Why in the name of Jesus P. Buddah should I order a print of one of your stupid comics?
A. Dude, you don't even know. They look really, REALLY good professionally printed on the high-quality card stock.
Q. Please explain the glossy print-out situation for your comics.
A. If you like a comic so much that you want to hang it on a wall, tape it to a dump truck, or affix it to your spouse's inner thigh, you can simply order a nice printout of a comic. Some comics, depending on their layout, will come in either landscape or portrait mode.
Ordering prints is easy. Simply browse to the comic you like and hit, "Buy a Print!"
Q. I'd rather buy all your comics in some sort of... book-ish format. Ever consider doing something GENIUS like that?
A. Yes I have. Just you wait.
Q. What size do they come in? Can I order bigger prints?
A. They come in 11'' x 17'' inch matte card stock. They look snazzier than a bucket of slimy, polished nickels.
Q. Now why in the name of Roseanne's Saddlebags should I order a print? Sounds lame and stupid.
A. Well, It's simple really. These prints look twelve-thousand times slicker on high quality card stock than on the internet. Not only THAT, but you're also supporting ol' Rawrb here and his aspiring pants.
Q. Do you offer framing options for my printed copy?
A. Not just yet; I will in the future!
Q. Can I order a high-res electronic PDF of a comic and print it out?
A. Sorry, no-can-do. It'd be too easy for folks to send the high-res version around to other folks for free. Yes, I know all about torrents, e-mail, and other methods of "creative sharing."
Tryin' to make this a living and fend off the tax zombies.
Q. I want a comic printed out on a shirt.
A. I'm considering that possiblity. Hang in there. This here site is still new and my pockets are mostly full of lint and pickles.
Q. What kind of setup do you have to draw comics?
A. Macbook Pro and a Wacom Intuos4 medium tablet. Could someone buy this one for me? Thanks.
Q. What is your process on drawing comics?
A. First, I create a layer and sketch out the basic design. Then I "ink" it with a black brush, color it in, add some sort of background, repeatedly punch a gopher, scale it, thumbnail it, post it online.
Q. What do ya use for yer website software?
A. Custom written PHP code with a MySQL database backend! Did I mention somewhere I can build websites? Yeah.
