The New Captain Scratchy Q & A:
Q: What’s all this, then?
A: Captain Scratchy is what is known as a “webcomic” or a “webcartoon” or a “big bowl of stupid.” Sometimes it’s a single-panel gag cartoon, sometimes it’s a multi-panel gag cartoon. Very rarely is it high art.
Q: Are there regular characters and regular story lines?
A: There used to be. But now the comics will be “stand-alones” rather than character-driven and story-driven comic strips. But beloved characters such as Angry Horse, Little Horse, Rick, Rufus and Jeff the Lethargic Beaver will make cameo appearances.
Q: Why Captain Scratchy?
A: It was the very last web domain name available.
Q: Who is the cartoonist behind Captain Scratchy?
A: Professional humor writer and cartoonist Chuck Ingwersen, who enjoys writing about himself in the third person. He creates cartoons for greeting cards, newspapers, websites and monkey behavioral study clinics.
Q: How often do “fresh” cartoons appear on Captain Scratchy?
A: Fresh cartoons are posted on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays. Some will be fresher than others. The not-so-fresh ones will be leftovers from Words and Toons, another website created by the Captain Scratchy cartoonist.
Q: Can I buy your artwork on greeting cards, coffee mugs, shirts, posters and other fun stuff?
A: Please do! Check out my store here!
Q: Can I post your cartoons on my website or in a newsletter or other publication?
A: Since cartooning is my primary source of income, I can’t give away my artwork to other forms of media. But you can have permission to use my work for a very reasonable fee. Check out the details on my portfolio website (the Bio/Contact page has contact info).
