Hey friends! I need your help. I’m gonna be launching an animated webcomic here on Tumblr soon (EXCITING) and I’m deciding on the presentation. It’s animated in Flash, so the best thing to do is post it as a SWF, but that means people on iPads and such won’t be able to view it… Here are my options, I’d love to know your thoughts:
1) Post pages directly to Tumblr as SWF’s
Gives me more room to make cool shit happen in the pages, but limits iPad/iPhone viewership (since they don’t play Flash videos). For this option, I’d probably include an external link to the still image version of each page.
2) Post still pages, and link externally to animated versions.
I don’t like this because all my animating won’t be front and center, but it’s better for spreading the comics, I guess.
3) Host the animated pages on a different blog, and post still versions here.
I don’t like this because I like having something hosted in one place, but it does help somewhat.
Before anyone asks, I’ve done many tests with GIFs and Tumblr’s stupid size limitations and the hassle of GIF exporting software makes that not a viable option at all…
Respond directly to this post please! What do you think?

My old work buddy Gene is releasing his second Galacticat comic book! I did this fan art for him. Check out his comic at www.galacticat.net

Last summer, I sold a show to Nick Jr. called “Monkey Bounce”. It was about three rowdy friends and their endless adventures. Ultimately, the show was passed on (bummer). But I’m so grateful for this opportunity and experience. I had a ton of fun. I learned A LOT about writing, television, and how to tell jokes to the toughest audience: preschoolers.
A BIG thanks to Lucas Mills (staff writer on Bubble Guppies + best pal for life) for helping me with several months worth of development. I couldn’t of made it this far without him and his hard work. Thank you Nick Jr. for giving me a shot. Thank you executives + staff + assistants for the guidance, meetings, notes, suggestions, resources, and rooting me on.
I can’t wait to pitch again. (very soon!)
ELIO IS THE KING OF CARTOONS! Can’t wait to see what my buddy boo is cooking up next!

Not much of a question but I just wanted to let you know how awesome you are. You are the reason why in fifth grade (2005; Yes, you had an 11 year old as a fan.), my teacher sent me to the principle's office for having a couple of printouts of Hyperboy and reading them during class. No regrets. I used to be obsessed. I still do occasionally rewatch a couple episodes here and there. Oh nostalgia. Thanks, man.
Oh wow! Thanks so much!!! Bummer you went to the principal’s office, but awesome you liked Hyperboy so much! You should check out Galacticat, it’s a comic I’ve been writing! And I’m working on drawing a new webcomic myself, so stay tuned! ;D
