Eighth Anniversary!

I started Savage Chickens eight years ago today! Here’s my annual class photo, showing all of the characters that appeared in more than one cartoon in the past year. See if you can identify them all!

Year #8 was an exciting one for me on the chicken front, mostly because of this and this and especially this. I’m still having a blast drawing cartoons and I want to thank you all for your continued support and encouragement!

These were the most-visited cartoons from the past year:

  1. Conflicted

    My absolute favourite cartoon is ‘A Challenge’ aka Welsh Scrabble, although LaForge’s alternative visors comes a close second.
    Thanks for making me laugh and may the next 8 years (and beyond) be as successful.

    i loved ALL of them!

    Being such a tech nerd as I am, I think “The three rules of manager robotics” is my personal favourite. Not only reflects the true spirit of management, but is also a great tribute to Isaac Asimov.
    Cheers for you first eight years!!!

    Favorite cartoons this year were the cat training steps. It’s a tough choice out of those, but I’d probably have to go with How To Train Your Cat 3;

    “Step two: put on your tuna vest.”

    great stuff. here’s to eight more great years!

    My favorite cartoon over the last year was “A Rare Event”. This is so much like my own place of business.

  26. Cindy says:

    Happy Anniversary!!

    While all the cats have made me laugh, I’m a dog person, so I’d pick “Hours of Fun”. Or “A Popular Time”. Or “Rover”…oh, it’s just too hard to pick one!

  27. Mary says:

    Happy anniversary Doug! Hears to many, many more!

  28. Lauren says:

    Do I have to pick a favorite? I like all of the cartoons that feature animals. And I have dogs, kitties, and a chicken. My chicken looks like this from the top: .^.

    I regularly forward and share my favorite Chicken comics and I have the Technical Writer conversation comic posted on my refrigerator in case I need to remember how to get out of a conversation. ๐Ÿ˜‰

    Do you have your own font? I would like to use a Chicken font for important documents.

  29. Lauren says:

    That’s my kitty, Dinky in my profile pic.
