Have you ever wanted to draw a Housepets! strip?  Well, now’s your chance!  Beginning next week, we will run guest strips.  Please send your entries directly to me – neodissension at gmail dot com.  If your entry meets the comic’s PG rating and tone, I will add it to the rotation.   There is currently not a deadline and the frequency of posts will depend on the number of entries received.  We reserve the right to reject entries for any reason and without notice.  You are welcome to request your own alt/title text; if you do not do so, I will write one for you.  All entries will become the property of Rick Griffin Studios at the time of submission.

Get yer comickin’ on, I’m excited to see what y’all can do!

ALSO, please be sure to vote for Housepets! at TopWebComics.com.  The current character sheet incentive is King’s!

    Well now I’m even more worried. Guest strips are always fun, though. Now if I could only learn how to draw in less than a week…

    • Gabe23

      Well, as you, I sadly don’t have any drawing skills …

      • Soren

        And I as well… I tried doodling Housepets in Geometry the other day. the best thing that happened was I got the paper in the trash can from the back of the room. :/

    I’ll see what I can do for Rick. Hope he mends soon though.

    • legendario13

      • Muddypaws

        Yep… that’s my goal. Just PM me the addy to send it (GIF, JPEG, TIFF?) and one question: 1 panel or 3? Or, is that up to me?

        • Dissension

          All instructions are included in the announcement. If it’s not there, it’s up to you. :3

          • Muddypaws

            is it “neodissension” or “dissension” ?

            It’s listed as “neo…” at the top. Just want to double check. I don’t want it bouncing or going into cyber limbo:)

          • Dissension

            It’s neodissension. Don’t worry, I posted my e-mail address correctly. = P

    One of my dreams has become true
    but is far away from being accomplised…
    i’ll just see what the others do and vote as I usually do
    and I hope Rick gets better soon too
    this sounds kind like a haiku so

  4. Taylor

    What exactly happened to Rick? Do you know when or if he will be able to resume the strip?

  5. Philip Soh

      • Draven

        When I get power back, that is.

  8. illeatyourself

    How did I forget about the possibility of guest comics!? XD I still hope you can get better soon so we can see more of the real thing again, but until then, we will have guest comics to keep us going. XD I still wonder what happened to land you in the hospital, but as long as you get better, I don’t totally care! :D

  9. GreighVonGottreich

    I have to admit, Rick (from my perspective) has been the only artist who accepts guest comics. This is ultimately cool to see! Hope you’re holdin’ up okay there, dude. We’re all here rootin’ for your recovery. :)

    Btw, love the character sheet for King!

  10. bug

    Man, I wish that I could draw as good as you guys other-wise I would try to get something to you. Rick, I just hope you can bounce back from this, so hear is what you should do, you hospitlised man, things can’t end like this, you have all the support you need right hear you beter get out of there and get back on the ball!! So take a Chuck Norris pill, get your titanic rear in gear and kick some comic BUT!!!!!! :p

  11. bhPixelFire

    I GOTTA TRY!!!

  12. The Wolf Kin

    I’ll try, but I make absolutely no guarantees. After all, my art skills are terrible and school is hard.

  13. Argent Stonecutter

    Latest tweets from Rick: he had gut surgery to deal with a complication from Crohn’s disease.

    • bug

      OMG!!! that is the scarrist thing that I could have heard about our beloved Rick!
      (note I didn’t say the scarrist.)
      Things could be a lot worse though, Best of luck to our comic hero!!!

      • Argent Stonecutter

        It’s pretty scarry: he did say that his belly button is no longer beautiful.

        • Lamandus

          uhh Morbus Crohn is nasty. Hopefully he will get well soon.

  14. D-Rock

    Can’t help there, as I’m no good at either story or art. Still, looking forward to what shows up. And give my regards to Rick. Prayingfor a good recovery!
