I’ve known Tauhid’s name since my sister Robin told me long ago about him. I had no idea how talented he was and heck, he’s local to me!
From the New Reader tab:
The Angry Dead is your one-stop shop for brains eating, apocalypse-chic sporting, one shoe having, torso dragging, jaw-bone missing, eye-socket exposing, undead abominations.
And since every zombie, worth his salt, needs survivors to eat, you know we’ve got those too! We’ve got ‘em in a cavalcade of shapes, sizes and flavors. Men, women and children! You name it, we’ve got it. And all of them running, desperately for their lives. Who’s going down next? Will it be the jerkwad ex-accountant or the bubbly teenaged ditz? My money’s on the gung ho, former-marine with the death wish. Only one way to find out, though. Join us, won’t you?
I went and read the strip for myself and like it a lot. To be honest, I thought at first that it was something done by Scott Kurtz of PvP fame; it’s that good. Go see for yourself.
If you keep clicking here to the Arteest site, you’ll notice that the strip hasn’t changed (yet). The fact is that Mark the artist needs to focus on getting some paying gigs to be able to do the things he needs to, like survive, and drawing this strip is a luxury and pays no one’s bills.
Sign up for the RSS feed or the newlestter and I’ll keep you in the loop.
Cross your fingers and if you choose to donate to Mark’s cause, note that in PayPal. Just saying.
Thanks for being here.
Everyone give a rousing welcome to new artist on the strip, Mark Topolski! I’ve known Mark for a few years since he was one of the regulars over at our Afterburn Media forum and got to meet him with several of the other regulars at Wizard World Chicago a few years ago.
Our posting schedule may not be as frequent as before with Mark working the strip into his busy worklife, but he’s here and he’s drawing more!

My old friend Steve Stegelin, who used to do a comic I loved called Boondoggle, has inspired me immensely by being open to guesting on Arteest. As you know, my brain works all the time (and I don’t always “listen”, I know) and somewhere during my day I made a mental note to touch base with Steve…then I started thinking about doing “shorts”, extra chapters/scenes for Arteest. And Steve is up for it which is cool because I love the guest strips he did for Clay’s Way. So, NOW I’m thinking of doing MORE…in strips, or possibly in half-page format or even in comic page form….see?? My mind’s on fire now. Thanks for inspiring me, Steve.
Hm, some of the stories will involve Dexter’s mom and some will be about the people who get sketched by Dexter and how they are affected/portrayed in some way.
So, if you’re interested in guesting on one of these short chapters, etc., lmk. Robin (Ator) drew in Flash for the first arc and I think Mark (Topolski)”s going old school, I think. This could get interesting…and fun.
http://arteestcomics.com/?p=8 is the first strip…go read them all…
Maybe I should just try drawing the strip myself…
That’s right, another potential artist for the Arteest webcomic has reluctantly had to back out because of his personal and work schedule. Add in the upcoming holiday season…and needing to make some money….
I’ve considered doing it myself but I know what it’s like to have all those scheduling conflicts..I have too many irons of my own in the fire as it is.
So, if you’re interested in drawing Arteest or know someone who might be up it, send them around. Share this link wherever you can…help me put the word out. I have the next several chapters written…
This is the first strip http://arteestcomics.com/?p=8 Read the story from the start, then contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org with Arteest Collab as the subject line.
Pay: Not much if any and not very fast. A split of any ad revenue generated and any merchandising created for Cafe Press, Zazzle, etc.
