My 404 Page

Posted on 4/12/08

404, it's the new 200. I drew a cartoon bat a few months ago that was originally supposed to be part of a wallpaper collection called "bat eats spider." I was going to have a bat biting the head off a spider, as sort of a shot at how well the Dark Knight did against Spiderman in terms of commercial success. Unfortunately the bat kept coming out too cute, and the spider too lame, so I just bagged it and it's been sitting on my hard drive ever since. I figured I'd get with the program and make a custom 404 error page.

Also, I launched a website today called Stop Saying Fail. It's doing really well - nearly 10,000 page views in the first hour. I'm actually not that against using the word "fail," but it's been parroted rather excessively lately, so I figured what the hell. Also, thanks to Rebecca Kelley. I can't remember if it was her idea or mine, but she definitely was a motivator behind making it.
