Hello everybody! You know what we love here at FML? Two things: the beach and a wifi access, because it allows us to write our traditional Saturday article in our swimsuits, lying down on the hot sand, a piña colada in our hand, hidden behind our sunglasses checking out the hot girls and guys playing in the waves. It's from this idyllic environment that we're going to introduce you to our sweaty and tanned artist for today. After we finish our cocktails. Okay here we go: ladies, gentleman, topless chicks, here is today's artist: Brian Brown aka Box Brown!
Box Brown is 29, he's thus got one year left before he officially becomes an adult. He spent most of his life in Jersey City, NJ, visiting Manhattan as often as possible. Then he met a girl in Brooklyn and turned all starry-eyed, finally following her to Philadelphia, PA.
Box Brown is a cartoonist and illustrator. That's what he tells people when they ask, but in fact, he makes most of his money from his day job, which some of you will secretly be jealous of: he works at an adult video distributor. And for those who are wondering, yes, it has a lot of perks. Our artist would love to spend 15 hours a day making comics, but he has to input information about porn movies into a database for 8 straight (or gay, or tranny) hours every day. But with this really hard job, you have to be able to space out and becoming a man machine whose sole purpose is to input porn nympho. Erm, info.
Besides his amazing job, Box Brown owns a website modestly called Box Brown, which he created to promote his comics. Not that he likes comics, he loves them, and he loves making comics and talking about comics and sometimes whining about comics. He felt he needed an online home to go on and ramble about stuff like that. He is currently shopping around his second graphic novel to publishers. His first, which technically isn't a graphic novel, is called "Love is a Peculiar Type of Thing." (Available on his website and at fine comic shops everywhere). He also updates his web comic 3 days a week.
Now here our last question before we go fishing bikinis in the ocean, why did our artist choose this story?
"It reminded me the most of my own life. Plus, there was a lot of FMLs that were so whiny! This one just seemed sincere and funny. Poor Elvis the cat!"

At least, Elvis the angry cat ended up in a FML illustration thanks to you Box Brown!
