Who are you?
I am a independent cartoonist and writer/illustrator for Stonetoss. You may call me “Stonetoss” or “Stone”.
Why’d you make this comic?
I have always enjoyed entertaining people with something I made and I wanted to continue that through this comic. Before doing Stonetoss, I liked making and sharing silly self-made memes on imageboards (here is one such example). As is the nature of imageboards, most of that artwork is lost to history. I decided to make a comic brand in order to preserve and share the art better.
While many other cartoonists will credit great artists like Bill Waterson of Calvin and Hobbes or Jim Davis of Garfield with inspiring them, I am a little embarrassed to admit I come from no such pedigree. I had always preferred the more raw, cutting, unapologetic, and frankly funnier works of countless anonymous artists on the internet arguing with each other in the earlier days of imageboards.
It appeared to me that the trend of mainstream art and humor today was moving to things being safer, less edgy, and boring. I wanted to see something, anything, that could buck the trend and lacking that, I made it myself.
Are you an EVIL NAZI?
No, I am not a member of the National Socialist German Worker’s Party, a national socialist, fascist, alt-right, or any kind of supremacist. I am just another humorist, like Dave Chappelle or South Park, who wishes to entertain through jokes. Occasionally people get offended and that’s okay.
When is it updated?
Currently the comic is updated twice a week, Tuesday and Thursday.
Do you do commissions?
