JEFBOT.119_Hit Them With Your Best Shoton February 10, 2009 at 3:01 am
First of all, I just wanted to send out a huge THANK YOU to everybody who left a comment or sent an email wishing me luck on this audition I had today. I can honestly say, you all made my audition 10x better when I was sitting in the waiting room, reading your messages and realizing I had a huge team out there rooting for me. I truly have the coolest, most supportive readers and am humbled by your generosity.
Secondly: the strip. Kind of ironic that today’s strip was delayed by an audition, when the current storyline is about jefbot being agent-less and audition-less, no? I currently don’t have an agent either, and am going to start sending out headshots soon, just like jefbot (well hopefully, not just like jefbot). Fortunately, I have an awesome new manager, Becky Poliakoff, who has been getting me some great auditions. Thanks, Becky!
And if you’re just getting here and are wondering what’s up with this blog post and the comments, basically, the strip was delayed a day because of this.
Good luck bud!
Seriously… good luck!
Good luck, jeffy! XD Couldn’t resist, sorry!
And if anything turns out a bit weird… heh, let Xinda take care of the situation for you. It would surely help 😉 Hey, gotta use the evil sister for personal gain, you know?
good luck ‘bot!
sending good thoughts in hope that the audition went well!
Buena Suerte Jefbot!!!!
i’m praying for you. run buddhaboy, run!
thanks for the support, folks – i’m surely gonna rock this audition with all your positive vibes backing me up!!!
Break a leg or what ever it is that you say to actors, I love your comic, worth the wait.
Break both legs and any other appendage that helps… If you’d like, I can break a few legs for you as well (not mine of course).
Goodluck =) Hope you get the role =D
this is UNACCEPTABLE!! Get your butt home and DRAW! You don’t need sleep, that’s why god invented Caffeine! and Crack!
I believe the expression is “Break a leg.” ’cause when you say “good luck” the actor is more likely to actually break their leg…or at least that’s what the superstition is.
So break a leg ‘Bot!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
If a delay means you ACTUALLY EARN A LIVING, we’ll wait.
At least I will.
just don’t forget us when you’re big time. actually when you’re big time send me a dozen autographs so i can put em up on ebay. That way we can all profit from your success.
No problem, I can wait. “Break a leg!”, “Knock ’em dead!”, “Banzai!” and whatever other exhortations and expressions of well-wishing apply…
If your acting is 1/4 as good as your artwork and story, they’d be fools not to hire you =)
good luck jefbot. wishes n prayers for u
man, you guys are THE BEST!!! thanks again for all your comments, enthusiasm and support today.
Wow I’ve been out of the loop due to being sick. (Me thinks I caught it from YOU via the internets!=P) I hope all went well with the audition, and maybe now that the sickness is finally at bay, I will be able to keep up with everything. I have to admit, I like seeing the raw unfinished product/sketch of your work when you have things going on for you. Yet another great strip, Jeffbot!
hope you’re all better now, Spanky! and glad you liked the sketch; i’ll try and do that whenever the strip gets delayed.
Well if your current manager is getting you these auditions, then you’re already in a better spot than you were with your previous agency, eh? =) ok, i don’t really know how the whole process works, but glad to hear you’re getting out there and jumping at opportunities!
when you’re the next big Hollywood name though, we expect that this strip still be here. remember the little people Jeff, the little people!!!!! 😉
once i get a good agency sending me out in addition to what my manager’s doing, it’ll be even better, Jed! and there’s no way i’ll forget all you guys supporting JEFbot, you’ll all be thanked in my oscar acceptance speech. 😉
Picture-Perfect! Love it Jefbot!!!
A.) I love the look of the strip… you always surprise me with color and texture!
B.) Good luck with the mailings… Just think the more people that get your head shot, the more people that see your face!
been messing around a bit with colors and texture, funnyshaffer, so glad you’re liking them.
now that there is a comic here my comment above makes me look like an ass. THANKS JEFF! (by the way, I laughed)
that was my plan ALL ALONG, jh3!!! MWAH-hah-hah!!! >:-)
pls fix buddah to buddha. thanks 🙂 ps. i hope your audition when well. pss. i almost wrote auction instead of audition, hey, theres any idea…
“buddah” fixed, xin. and yep, the audition went well!
what is a headshot?
i am not sure. but i sent you one.
Good luck! Hopefully, if you land this gig and it gets picked up, you’ll still have enough time to do Jefbot at least ONCE a week.
Oh, headshot: http://www.squidworks.com/Zombicatures/Stan/2008Stumptown04a.jpg
i love doing JEFbot too much to give it up now, Stan. and your headshot is awesome, btw!
I agree with funnyshaffer…the texture and color of the strip are always interesting and beautiful. I’m continually in awe of the artwork.
thanks, man. i appreciate that.
The ‘shut up’ text bubble was very reminiscent of Charles Schultz. Loved it. Also, re: your audition. 13 legs were broken as a sacrifice, so let me know how things went.
thanks for sacrificing those legs, eleventeen – i think it helped. and yeah, Shultz’s influence is strong on the strip but i was thinking more Sim & Gerhard when i did that bubble.
Good luck! I hope we see you in something soon :3
me too, Shan!!! 😀
Super FUNNY, bot! As you know, I’m not the biggest fan of the acting strips but this one is really great. I love the background and use of colors, and you are a genius at facial expressions. The ever increasing headshot piles is hysterical. Hey, as far as I’m concerned, you’re a super star already, so why even bother with an agent? 😉
yeah, who needs agents anyway!? oh, wait. i do. 😉
Jefbot, you said it was a pilot you were auditioning for. do remind us about the title and maybe airing time if possible. would love to see a friend on the air.
not sure if i can say the title or not, but i was able to read the entire script and it’s very cool. this was just the first audition though, so i’m still a long way from getting the part. audition went well though, and even if i don’t get called back, i’m hoping the casting directors remember me and bring me back for other projects in the future.
That ever-increasing pile of headshots looks like the time I had to send out my resumé. Oy! Too bad the USPS doesn’t sell stock…
hope your pile of resumés paid off for you, reynard61. hope mine does, too. 🙂
Break-a-leg out there Jefbot!
thanks, Mary! i shall!
We love you Jefbot ^^
awwww, thanks, DaughterJudy! i love the love. keep it coming! 🙂
I hope things went well with the audition, we’re rooting for you!
thanks for the rooting, Kevin I! hoping to have more to root for this year than i did in 2008. 🙂
You’ve fleshed out the characters so well and have such a talent for drawing precise expressions that even without the dialog we could understand the strip.
