Webcomic description

Welcome to the wonderful world of Cosmos - where the planets are donut-shaped, the people are small, green and friendly, and pop-cultural obsession is pretty much a prerequisite! Join Artie, Gene, Jenny, Ax, Macy and all their odd-ball friends as they navigate (to them) the normal travails of everyday life.... But hurry up! The next crazy adventure starts in five minutes!


Hey there! Jon Kay, cartoonist-at-large, here - I am a New Zealand-based freelance graphic designer / illustrator / motion graphics artist, working and living in Auckland. I love dinosaurs, Transformers and bad sci-fi movies! I draw the comic strip Cosmos!! I can't stop ending my sentences with exclamation marks!!!

Here is where the rubber met the road in terms of 'Adventures in Stationery' - an entire army of comic strip ideas sketched out in one of my trusty sketchbooks. As the New School era was a while in coming (I drew far more comic ideas in the last half of 2007, than actual finished comics), these sketches arrived piecemeal over quite a few months; dispersed in amongst doodles for my GrandeCon story, various Randoms and Sundays, and not in anything approaching the final order they have in the story. Then, obviously, they had to wait until 2009 to actually be drawn up, since 'The Great ComicCon Caper' elbowed them out of the way in its haste to be visualated first....

Any good Cosmos story comes with concept sketchin's, and Adventures in Stationery certainly had its good share. In addition to doodles of the comic strips themselves, I decided to do a title page to lead off the story; which would introduce the three principal characters (as two were Brand New! Never Before Seen!) and incorporate the Stationery World theme into its design. How to do that? Why, make it into a stationery store-bought notice board, with thumb tacks and pinned-up notices aplenty!

Once the 'New School' era of Cosmos was established (via the epic 'Grandecon' story), I decided to branch out into new ground: namely, what exactly it was that one Jenny Masters, gal-pal of Gene, did when she wasn't hanging out with the A-team cast. We'd seen snippets of the other characters' working lives - Artie at Tony's Comic Utopia, Gene at Stuff-U-Like, Ax and Macy doing photography, art and web stuff - but not Ms. Masters. That is, until I created Adventures In Stationery, wherein we saw the craziness that ensues on a daily basis when Jenny, Myra and Zoe clock in at Stationery World! And in the spirit of DVD special features, we're now going to show you everything that contributed to its formation!

Ohhhhh my, were me and Jeremy giant, colossal, Unicron-sized Transformer nerds. Being both children of the 80's, we grew up with the titular Robots in Disguise; collecting the toys, watching the cartoons, reading the comics, and generally geeking out over how freakin' awesome they were! And also being blessed with semi-reliable incomes, every time we ran into each other, we were able to play 'Guess what I've got!' and unveil the latest addition to our respective collections. And if my 'Formers and his 'Formers got into a bit of a disagreement over who had the best army? LLLLet's Get Ready To Rummmmmble!!!!! Carnage. Utter carnage.

During the period of years-time covering 2002 to 2005, Jeremy and I sometimes hung out with a collective of his friends, who did web-type stuff together on the now-defunct site 'Nocents' (don't ask me). Being utterly, utterly mad, we decided to create a Star Trek-style parody comic with the Nocents gang as the crew of the New Century Syarship Synergy; with me doing.... well, most of the work, and Jeremy and crew providing their stirling personalities as inspiration for their cartoon name sakes. Captain Dave! Admiral Pete! Ivan (as a fat green alien) on Comms! Junior officer Mr. Jeremy! Head of engineering Mr. Hamish! Head of Science Mr. Ray! Master helmsman Mr. Duncan! Me being me, I obsessively populated the rest of the ship with a variety of other crew members, both human and non, including - working with Mr. Ray - science officers Artie and Gene! What? I kind of just.... slipped them in there, Jeremy thought it was hilarious, and we went from there. I was allowed, right? I did my best not to have the gruesome two-some take over the entire thing (there were more Synergy stories without them than with them), as Captain Dave and the others were justifiably the stars of the show; but Artie and Gene still had their share of fun whooping it up as part of the guest cast.... and geeking out with Jeremy, of course.
