About the Archive

I will be adding to the archive in stages. The completed archive will contain all 321 Kiosk comic strips as originally published in the University of Tennessee Daily Beacon. It's broken down into six sections corresponding to the semester they were published. I appologize for the few holes. Hopefully, I'll be able to find these casualties of time.

About Kiosk

I began the concept for "Kiosk" in the spring of 2000. The idea was to make something that could at times be linear and at others completely random. I wanted to be able to interject an element of the visually unexpected and poke fun at some of the conventions of the newspaper comic strip.

Despite the esoteric nature of some of the jokes, I felt that if I created something visually interesting on the page, then I had succeeded.

Enjoy!
