Some of Richard Stevens 3 Comics

rstevens is the nerd who draws Diesel Sweeties, helps operate the Dumbrella boards and needs a personal site to share his other comics. Here it is. Content is from 2011 archived pages. Even though rstevens let the domain's registration expire I bought it and am recreating some of the content from the site's 2003-2004 archived pages. 

Now some folks really enjoy the Stevens sketchy WINK character and comic strips. I can't say my Mom is among them. Last week she called about looking for some fashionable dog beds online. She was overwhelmed with the number of site's and the different choices that were available. In my mind I could easily visualize Wink talking to my Mom about dog beds. Unfortunately I couldn't share that vision with my Mom. Her reaction would most likely be" Stop trivializing my predicament and offer a solution." The woman has no sense of humor. So instead I started asking questions about the type of dog bed she imagined Sam, her dog, would like. Well she wanted a round dog bed with an upscale look to it. Ideally she wanted a Toille for the fabric design. So I suggested she do a search for round dog beds with designer fabrics. She ultimately did find what she was looking for at an e commerce site called GoodNightDog. Meanwhile I went back to looking at myriad comic strips- wasting my time - as my mother would say.

Wink Hauntlie Meets SPUMMY

In the final Wink comic of this holiday season, our hero meets the nefarious SPUMMY. This is my first time publically drawing Spummy... but he has appeared in Wigu, Goats & Sluggy Freelance already.

Wink Hauntlie: LOL Squad!

AOL + Ghouls = Some crazy kind of magic. Or maybe some kind of dancing taco. Any requests for next week's Wink? I was debating introducing him to a special mummy friend.

Wink Hauntlie's Midnight Snack

This week, Wink stuffs a bunch of things into his mouth. Join us next week when it's part of a person! (Maybe even a dead person.) This marks three weekly adventures for our spooky protagonist.

Desktop Lovin'

I've got two Wink Hauntlie dekstops for ya'll: #1 and #2. Both are 1024x768, butyou can just set them to be centered and they'll fit most any size screen. I just sketched out a new strip for next week. I also eat a lot of Twix bars.

Has anyone been to Target lately and seen their Halloween junk? They've got some insanely cute little monster characters all over the store. I just grabbed a ghost oven mitt and a mummy dish soap (or lotion if you're gross) dispenser. If you work in Target's design department you have my highest regard.

Wink Hauntlie: Ghost About Town #2

Wink returns! Meet Mrs. Sol Hauntlie, Ghost Mom. I'd love to hear what you think about Wink. He's an experiment that I'm having a lot of fun with. Doing actual drawings is really freeing.

Wink Hauntlie: Ghost About Town #1

Wink started out as a Halloween t-shirt design and quickly took hold of my imagination as the world's most charming homosexual ghost. Episode 2 should post some time on Tuesday.

Wink's adventures are drawn in black colored pencil on rough white copy paper. I create the chalk effect using special tricks taught to me by Tibetan monks.


Just a little tribute to Steven Cloud's Boy on a Stick and Slither, one of my favorite comics.
