accidents happen

Have you read through all of the Scratch Comics from the beginning? Have you ever wondered about the back-stories in each comic? Have you ever wondered about the intricacies of the various relations within the Scratch world? For example, what's the deal with the Little Bird and the Man who live together? And what's the relationship between the Little Bird and the Elephant? And The Clown? The Ghost? If you have, just drop me a quick e-mail ( or just comment right here if you want, and say "yes." I'm considering developing a slight off-shoot from Scratch that gives more insight into the Scratch world, and the connection between the various characters in that world.

winter is here.

at least I have YOU.

everything dies, I suppose.

Sorry for absence of comics over the last week or so, I was on a small vacation. I guess I should've let you know. How heartless of me. I'm sorry! Please put down the cheese grater, and let's talk about this. I'm back, and I only have eyes for you. You, and the new banner I put up in honour of the Holiday Season. Have you seen it?

Also, I am considering a few changes. I am considering putting Scratch Comics on Hiatus for January, and attempting a second "February LiveJournal Project" in ... uh... FEBRUARY. Let me know your thoughts on this. I'd like to be churning out more Cyrius per week, and get some animations finished, so maybe this will be a way to do that? I need to know what you all think. (NOTE: scritchscratch is the name of the SITE, and Scratch is the name of one of the COMICS on the site....there apparently is some confusion about this. And while we are settling confusions..."boxer-briefs") So yeah. Write me at or if you are on LiveJournal, drop me a line there if you'd like. Now let's have some Taco Salade.

oh beyonce.

This comic is a continuation of the preceding comic where Frederic was launched into orbit, but it is in fact re-written from it's original dialogue, which had been written before the "space" comic. This is how these things go sometimes in the comic-writing world, I guess. But if you'd like to see the original "beyonce" gag... go HERE

360 varial kickflip into my heart.

Thanks for all your great mail everyone! In regards to the "rejects" page....I will give no hints....but the link is hidden on the site somehwere. Actually, I will tell you is not hidden in any of the actual "comics" pages. As for merch, I've gotten a few letters about prints and t-shirts, etc...I will launch merch soon, but probably not until we are into the new year. So you can be sporting your ironic and clever scratch and cyrius t-shirts in the spring and summer!

poor buttercup.

So, as I'm sure you realize, I LOVE Hallowe'en. And no, I don't mean the fact that I get to dress up like a priest, I mean the good-natured part of Hallowe'en. The kids having fun, dressing up, and just the memories that I have from my childhood and the activities at school and such. I also love the general feel and "vibe" of October. And most importantly this time of year is my favourite time to draw comics. I love drawing Hallowe'eny stuffs!

RSS, new banner, and Twitter......

So, a couple things I wanted to tell you about......

First off, I made an animated Halloweeny banner for

Go to the site to see the animated version.

Secondly, I've got RSS hooked up for the site now as well. But here's how I set it up: There are currently three RSS feeds available on the site, one for NEWS, one for SCRATCH COMICS, and one for CYRIUS. The reason there are three different feeds is so that you can pick and choose what you want in your feed. Maybe you only like a certain comic, and don't want the news updates, well, no prob! Maybe you want it all! That's fine too!

Also, if you are into twitter, you can also follow scritchscratch comics there as well now. There is a button link on the main page as well.

I guess that's it for now!

I'm working on two animations which will be up soon. One for Cyrius, and a Scratch one for Halloween.

Lots going on, and thanks so much for all the kind words and support!

This one is for my good buddy, Joey. Joey Comeau. God how he loved his candy. You'll be missed Joey.

guess who's coming for dinner?

Happy Thanksgiving! Despite the horrible origins of this day, let's just use it as a day to be thankful for the things we have right now in 2008. We can be thankful for our family, friends, and the fact that no zombies have shown up at the door to murder us all. Happy Turkey Day!

Today is Friday! Here is a comic for you!

Have you checked out the "Learn About the Ocean!" section? If you are fascinated and scared of the ocean like me, then maybe you'll like it! If not, you'll find it boring!

Some Quality hang-out time.

It is Friday, so here is some fresh meat:

So, today my bestest buddy joey, (who does the webcomic a softer world ) helped me hook up some new coding for the Scratch Comics portion of the site. Now it will be "php" instead of html, which makes my life a WHOLE lot easier. (thanks joey!) But just a warning, the FLJP portion is disabled just for the time being. By Monday we will have everything up and running smoothly, including Cyrius in php too! Sadly this is much less exciting for everyone that is not joey or i. You will see no difference whatsoever. Sigh. This is the nature of code, I suppose.

In other news... you are not gonna believe this..... remember the first Cyrius comic? Well, today my friend Kqantu sent me THIS LINK. I swear that I created that comic without knowing about that! Seriously! What are the odds of that? That is just insane. Also, check out the "Learn" page in the Cyrius section to get your brain-veins pumpin'! Haha. But seriously, there are just some fun facts there. And soon... QUIZES! (all for fun, I swear. I'm not TRYING to make you learn, really.

Life can be tough.

New Scratch for today:

Hallowe'en is coming. Have you heard? I am excited. It is my favourite. This month will have a few ghosts. And probably some zombies. Consider yourself warned. If my death was unavoidable, that's how I would wanna go. Zombie ravaging. People would talk about you forever.

"Man, remember Chris?"
"Yeah. Woof. Wadda dude."
"I can't believe he got taken out by ZOMBIES."
"Yup. He died like he lived."
"Nevermind. Pass the medulla oblongata."

Or something like that I suppose.

One is the Only-est numba.

New Cyrius is up:
It is October now, and I am READY. Bring on the CANDY. I love this time of year, the changing of the leaves, the carving of pumpkins, the watching of scary movies, the drinking of cider, the tormenting from ghosts.

Pillow Talk.

It is Monday. New Scratch!

So, we had this Brita water filter that attaches to our tap, but every time I would turn on the water it would shoot off into the sink and water would spray directly into my eye. Everytime. I hated it. So I looking in the manual and found a number to call if "your unit doesn't fit on your tap". I call, they were somewhat nice, but the point is, a week or so later I got a kit in the mail, on their dime. It was filled with a bunch of different adapters for the tap. We went through them, picked the right one, and BAM. PROBLEM SOLVED. Just goes to show you, when you phone a company, they want you to be happy so they will often send you free stuff to rectify the problem! No I can get back to filling my water balloons with filtered water.

The first Cyrius the Cycloctopus strip:

Hope you enjoy it, and you can catch new ones every friday.

New scratch up:

In other news, I have decided that corn on the cob, when eaten once a year, or, at least, infrequently, is SIMPLY THE BEST THING EVER. Let me paint the picture for you: fresh corn on the cob, boiled, melted butter, and some salt. Mmmmmmmmmmmmm. DEElicious. When I was a kid I used to eat it like a typewriter. You know, "chomp-chomp-chomp-chomp-chomp-DING!" rotate and repeat. Those were the days. Now, I just eat it like a ravenous wolf.  

Also, have you checked out my website? It is new. And I am very happy to have one!!

comics and new beginnings and such.

Hello World!

Sooo......  this begins the blogity blog of scritchity scratch.   The website launched today, Monday Sept 22, 2008, and I'm quite excited!  Please feel free to go on over and peruse the site and check out all the archived scratch comics!  

Here is the beginning of chapter 4!:  

This is definitely representative of the fact that I have been MIA from doing the comic thing for awhile.  I am psyched to be back at the drawing board!  Literally!  Ha!

I'll be on the regular with Scratch, and the other comics (Cyrius, Peas, etc) will come sporadically at first, but will become regular over time.   You can also find me on facebook (Chris H, Halifax) and on livejournal too:

I guess that's it for now!
