It occurred to me that after two years of
the comic, it is time to update this little info blurb.
My name is AleX. I am the artist and creator of Factual
Authentic Real True Stories. The main thing you
should know about this comic is that all the strips are actual authentic
real true stories.. As in all
events really did happen. All the people in them
are real and are illustrated to the best of my memory (or if the
stories were told to me by someone else, I try to interpret it as
closely as I am able with the amount of information given).
I think it’s funnier when it’s true. I came up with an idea of FARTS
in 2002 or something. These strips were originally created as a
random comic just to make my friends laugh. Eventually, thanks to
Scott’s great encouragement, Amy’s enthusiasm, and Phil’s nudge
became a regular weekly comic and has been ever since.
Who am I? I am a recent college graduate with bachelor’s in Visual
Communications (which is just another version of the “graphic design”
major). I am soon to be married to a big, strong, hairy Canadian;
Scott. My best friend is Amy, whom I met while in college. I am
a co-founder of Biscuit
Press, a webcomic collective. I highly encourage you
to check out all the Biscuit Press webcomics and projects.
