Hey guys! Here's my interview on Sonic Sez: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rC_w-Wn6zL8 Thanks again to the guys at Find the Computer Room for having me on! I am also slowly but surely typing out answers to whatever questions were asked that we didn't get to on the show. So no worries!

Hi there!

I hope you don't mind me going about this way, but...

I'm thinking of starting a fan comic here on deviantart, and I am looking for artists to help with this project. Do you know how or where I might find some?

Thank you, and I look forward to hearing from you.

Greetings Mr.Herms! I'm a big fan of your work and I've read many a Sonic comic that you have worked with.

If you would indulge me, I'd like to show you some of my artwork that was originally inspired by the Archie Sonic comics.


Characters like Grief, Amanda, Herman, and Scylla are from Moebius. Although they're from a made up version of sci-fi Atlanta called Siag.

(The city is below Grief's daughter Grau in the future.)

You have an impressive Gallery. :D

Sorry to bother ya like this but the user Carla is a rather notorious art thief. Evidence is linked here

Merry Christmas🎄

Hello, can I request for today or another day?
