UGGHHH I dunno maybe I will, perhaps? I'm still kinda 50/50 on it. I'll update on it if I do decide to purchase it though!

Now to get a frame...

I hadn't considered customs charges and I presume it would be the same for the UK. I guess when factored into the price they're still worth it. Time to go raid the piggy bank!

I would buy this comic because he's adorable ~ And practically all of this arc too! ...If I were rich. ;_;

Brilliant, there's loads more awesome sketches! Just acquired the 'Obligatory Reference' sketch :D

I've already picked out a prime viewing location, next to my signed XKCD, signed photo of Keanu Reeves (don't ask!), and a few others.

I smile every time I see the XKCD strip and now I can do the same with Housepets! Thank Rick

Absolutely amazing! I hope you make a mint on this, because it deserves every penny.

This brings up a question, though. Does this mean you do your rough sketches on paper, even to this day? That is actually really amazing to me!

No, the sketches were only for like an eight-month period; most of the comic has been all-digital. Now I do full-sized physical inking.

In fact I think Great Water Balloon War was the last one I did regular physical sketching for (besides a few exceptions). I converted to all-digital again before the end of the arc.

Post Re: Housepets Originals For Sale
I've always been intrigued as to what software or devices people use to digitally draw and sketch on, especially what Rick uses! I do love to see physical sketches or inking, but I don't know why. I suppose it just seems to have more of a romantic feel to it.

Got one with Fox, yay! I missed the character sheet, but at least I got a decent consolation prize! :D

I'm really excited, I just received my sketch in the post :D Rick packaged it up so well that not even Royal Mail could bend it!

I'm really pleased with it, and looking forward to getting it to its new home. Thanks Rick!

*addition to "list of things I'll do if I get a tardis"*
After successfully robing $100,000 from PETA, I shall teleport into ricks house the night after he puts the originals up for sale, take the character sheets for peanut, fox, and king to place on the wall of my recently acquired inter-demensional base and leave Rick griffon with 10 times the listed sale price, along with a additional $2,000. He needs a reward for making this comic.

Only $3350 out of your newly acquired $100,000! What are you doing with the other $96650? :P

I haven't been able to hang my sketch up yet as it didn't fit the frame :(. I'm taking it to the professional framers today to get it done as I don't want to cut it. My fault as I didn't check the size!

Well more accurately, I'd use my new powers to bring them to life then make them do battle in the worlds greatest diorama.

If you use time travel to get them when they were first available, you would still have a lot of leftover cash! :)

I think I heard him say once that it takes him anywhere between 2-6 hrs per strip depending on the workload. I could be wrong though?

Yeah, a typical comic averages seven hours' work. That's impacted by more or fewer panels, of course. Regular sketches vary, depending on complexity.
