On March 13th, Odori Park will be officially one year old. That is to say, on March 13, 2009, I posted the first Odori Park strip on the Web. At the risk of solo horn tooting, I’m pretty proud of making it a full year without a missed update, and I’d like to do something to celebrate:

I’d like to take a nap.

Actually, there are three things I’d like to do:

  • Take said nap,
  • Spend some time with my ever patient and supportive wife, and
  • Rebuild some of my ailing comic buffer.

To accomplish these tasks, I’d like to enlist your help. If you dig Odori Park, and you think you have a fun idea for a strip, would you please consider drawing it up and sending it along for me to post? Any guest strips I receive between now and March 13th will–barring any inappropriate naughtiness (I think this comic does a pretty good job of establishing its own boundaries, if you need guidance)–be posted on Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays until I run out of guest strips. At which point, I will stop slacking off, reshackle myself to my drawing tablet, and give you more new comics.

You can email strips, in GIF, JPG, or PNG format at 900 pixels wide, to chris@odoripark.com

Let me know if you have questions, and thank you in advance! My family will thank you, too.

    I’ll try to put something together too, Chris.
