Hello, and welcome to Toonhoundstudios.com, the home of Scott Kurtz and all the stupid stuff he draws.
Over the last two decades, I’ve written and drawn a lot of comics and I felt it was time for all of it to live in one place. This is that place. Toonhoundstudios.com is the new home of PvP, Table Titans, Mort, and all of the other odds and ends I plan to make in the years to come.
Don’t worry, the URLs you have bookmarked for PvP and Table Titans still work, they just take you to their individual sections of this new site. New website launches are always dicey. Things might break and I’m sure we’ll find plenty of stuff to tweak so bear with us.
One thing you won’t find on our new website is ads. Over the last couple of years, online advertising and really taken a nose-dive in both quality and value. It was a never-ending game of whack-a-mole trying to manage our ad network to stop displaying intrusive and sometimes even malicious ads. The minute we’d block a bad-faith advertiser from the site, another would pop up.
Instead of monetizing my work with ads, I’m hoping you’ll join our Patreon. Even becoming a backer at our lowest tier for a few months would generate more revenue for me than spending a year visiting the site with terrible ads on it.
Patreon is heavily integrated into this site. While some things will always be offered free of charge I ask that you join our Patreon community to enjoy the breadth of my vast archives. There are thousands of comic strips and hundreds of pages of adventure for you to enjoy. As well as informative looks behind the scenes at my process and access to live events and podcasts.
This is a bit of a scary move for me. I’ve always given everything away for free and used ads to compensate me for my work. But things have changed. Adblockers are baked into every phone and browser (and for good reason). So it’s time to adapt.
I’ve been posting my comics online since 1998, and every year since we’ve faced a new challenge. But every year you kids stepped up and supported us through those challenges and I have no doubt you’ll do the same once again. I love making comics for you. I love sharing my process and my story with you. And I hope you’ll continue with me.
Here’s to another year of challenges! Let’s swing for the fences.
