    Member of the Week: Wes Molebash


    As told to Comic Foundry…
    Wes Molebash has been drawing comics since he was but a wee child.
    When he was in fourth grade, his mother bought him an instructional video cassette on how to make your own comic strips. Wes fell in love with the tape and was soon creating his own comic strips to take to school and show the ladies. But fifth grade ladies are hard to please. Unless you let them borrow your glue stick, then it’s all good.

    Wes created the “Andy” character when he was ten years old, and, over the years, Andy went through several evolutions. When first created, Andy was an idiot who was prone to getting the crap kicked out of him by other comic characters Wes created. When Wes was in junior high school, Andy was a six-year-old kid in a comic strip that was a blatant “Calvin and Hobbes” ripoff. By the time Wes was in high school Andy had developed into a young man dealing with dating, homework and tests in Wes’ high school newspaper and local newspaper.

    Nowadays, Andy is married to the beautiful Katie, and you can catch their adventures at . The site averages around 2000 unique visitors per day, and Wes is always looking to increase that number. So tell all your friends to read his comic!

    Wes decided to join Comic to increase his street cred. He also believes it is a great way to get feedback on your work and make contacts with other artists and writers. So, if you’re thinking about joining the Foundry, Wes strongly urges that you do so. If not for you, then for the kids.
