5,000 and…

1 Comment

Today I post the 5,000th Bob the Squirrel strip.  I’ve said it all. Here is the statement to the Bob the Squirrel Greatest Hits show opening tonight.

Thank you everyone everywhere over the course of 15 years and 5,000 strips.  Just… thank you.

25 years of self portraits

This is me… from the beginning of my senior year in high school to this morning.  There are a few gaps in the series – 1993, 1994, 1996, 1997, 1998 and oddly 2002 are missing.  I could probably fill those gaps with something if I looked hard, but what you see are the “official” portraits of those years.  Time flies… click on the image to see a bigger version.

Patreon – and feel good about yourself

Are you a patron of Bob the Squirrel? Why not?

Now what is Patreon? Watch and learn:

I want to keep Bob and Squirrelosophy as vibrant as possible. To do that, I need breathing room. Breathing room where I don’t have to worry about taking a paying gig over putting a bit more time into a Sunday panel or an extra Squirrelosophy panel, or if I just feel the need to do some video and need a piece of equipment.

I’ve had Bob on Patreon since January of this year. Currently, I have 12 wonderful patrons willing to donate their hard earned money to something they think is special and worthy of their support. I cannot begin to tell you how humbled and wonderful that makes me feel. Every little bit helps and is appreciated.

Bob isn’t going anywhere. You as a fan can expect the same quality as always. But with your support through Patreon, Bob can grow. You will be a Patron of the arts! And, as a patron, you will get benefits that others do not. Cool stuff. Really cool stuff… and stuff that’s so cool I haven’t even thought of it yet. The more support, the more cool.

Check out the Bob Patreon page when you can. There is absolutely no pressure to commit.

Support Frank Page creating Comics that Squirrels can dance to and not be embarrassed.

A self-critique of Bob the Squirrel 12/22/02


Bob the Squirrel from 2002.

I thought I would do something a bit different… and possibly turn it into a semi-regular thing… I call it: Review Your Old Stuff: Self-critique that can be objective because of the passing of time.

Please let me know if you dig this sort of thing.  I’m in the midst of a user-friendly re-vamp of the site and content.

So, way, WAY back in 2002, this is what Bob looked like.  This is what I looked like too.  This strip in particular was first published on December 22, 2002.

Where do I begin?  Obviously, I was growing a full beard.  Obviously, I hadn’t had my hair cut in a while.  Obviously, I was still wearing the t-shirts I had printed up with my head on them… merchandise remnant of a failed comic strip I did called “Spare Parts”.  When I have the stomach for it, I’ll dig some of those out and post them.
