Webcomic description

Jake Thompson is a famous explorer whose writing is featured in books and his adventures on television. He has just married his long time girlfriend, Mary and has signed a great book deal about the cursed, Blood Island. The publisher needs a rough draft quick, so they're picking up the tab on the honeymoon and the research!


Matt C Ryan is a freelance cartoonist and comic book artist whose work spans from the comics industry to package design and advertising. He is also co-owner and head artist for Free Lunch Studios in Granby CT.

He is creator and artist on the comic, BIGGER, published by his company, Free Lunch Comics. Additional stories, characters, and sequential art appear in other titles from Free Lunch Comics as well as numerous other comics from Crazy Mama Studios, Guild Works Productions, Radbu Productions, Blindwolf Studios and others. His larger body of work includes cartoons for a number of magazine ads and package and character designs for such clients as Dornenburg Design and Mark Lewis Creative Arts.

Matt has already been honored and recognized by a number of professional organizations. Matt was a member of the Farmington Valley Arts Center faculty for seven years and was named Master Teaching Artist by the Greater Hartford Arts Council. Shortly after joining the Comic Book Artists Guild, he was nominated head of the Connecticut branch and held that position until he stepped down in 2008. In April 2008 at the New York ComicCon, he received the first-ever CAG award for production excellence. At the 2009 New York Comic Con CAG Awards, Matt received the Best Cartoonist and Best Workshop awards. Also, he was juried into the Granby Artists Association, a network of fine artists that partake in galleries, fundraisers, and mentoring activities.

It's 10am and I am done with the challenge with 2 extra pages and 2 hours to spare. I contemplate drawing filler pages...but I can't...I am spent, I am happy, I am certainly doing this again...but next time must be different.

It is no accident that Jaws is playing at the studio at this time.
