    the iPad one is pretty cute, but the #1 cartoon literally took me 15 mins to get. its not very noticeable that the hand in the 5th frame is from IE. and the last pilot one is just kinda poorly designed. whats with all the negative space in the upper left hand corner? i get its a cartoon, but its a cartoon on a design blog.

  2. 3

    Smashing is just awesome, keep up the creative stuff

    These characters have a name ? why you don´t give them a name, to every one of them; with the help of your readers. They have been created by you, however since they have been online, they belong “some way” to your audience, Don´t you think so ?

    • 8

      I think the characters are the company founders and employees himself. See the illustration in “About Smashing Magazine”….
      As for the cartoons some are a bit way too geeky for me, but some are really cute!

  7. 9

    Cool and absolutely creative.

      Hey Mr. Hate, I mean Mr.”H” about Smashing Comic again? As you can see it’s not another issue of the Smashing Comic, if you want help please tell me why you don’t like it, style? Subject? Ricardo Gimenes? etc…or you don’t like cartoons in general? It will help me to create a better cartoon ;) Don’t forget to come back here next Friday.

  27. 30

    They are so funny,

    thank you

    Hey men… nice cartoons!… well a feedback will be: Apple block using Flash CS5 compiler! this sould be a legal problem between Adobe and Apple

  29. 32

    I love the idea, but here’s where I have to say something no one else seems to have.

    I’m guessing all of these cartoons need to be outsourced so they get made by a third party provider, right?.

    What happened to Smashing Magazine being in dept and not having enough money to stay in business. That is what you guys asked all those people to buy your book for, right?.

    If you’re tight on money, how the heck do you guys afford to do things like this?

  30. 33

    PLEASE!! i beg of u!
    dnt ever stop drawing carttons!
    HILAROUS! ( from style to idea)

    thnk u for makin my day start with a laugh :)

  31. 34

    Hillarious cartoons – Keep it coming :)

    P.S Ignore the haters.

  32. 35

    No comments, no laughs….

  33. 36

    I get a kick out of these, they seem to lose their arms sometimes though. *Unless that is part of the artist’s style* ;)

  38. 42

  39. 43

    I love these. Probably one of the greatest addition to Smashing Magazine. Very cool, keep it up.
