Who are you?
I am a independent cartoonist and writer/illustrator for Stonetoss.
I am also an NFT artist. I’ve made a few collections; the most prominent being “Flurks“. It had the distinction of selling 5,000 pieces of artwork in 22 minutes for a total of nearly $2 million.You can check out the collection on Scatter.art!
You may call me “Stonetoss”, “Stoney”, “Stone” or whatever your preferred pseudonym.

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. 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 must admit I come from no such pedigree.
I had always preferred the more raw, honest, unapologetic, and frankly funnier works of countless anonymous artists that populated the early days of imageboards.
I am offended by your comics, are you a bad person?
I don’t think so. I create my work to entertain and cultivate a more thoughtful and happier world.
Indeed, even my most-offended critics admit my work is “a better example of cartooning than a lot of professional political cartoonists” and is “genuinely funny”.
Cartooning (and art broadly) provides a peaceful way to critique our world and have challenging discussions. Its traditions predate the United States and was practiced by its founding fathers.
Of course, there are always those who claim provocative artists should be stopped. To them I say, “keep failing”.
Transgressive art is popular everywhere, from the pages of Charlie Hebdo to broadcasts of Family Guy. My work is similar. Like them, I have also earned millions despite the impotent attempts of censors. In fact, my critics have even shut down their twitter accounts after realizing their efforts had the opposite of their intended effect. (ha ha)
I encourage you to enjoy the comic, but if not, that’s okay too.
When is it updated?
The comic is updated twice a week, Tuesday and Thursday.
