Well, as you might have noticed I haven’t put up a new comic today. The unthinkable has happened. For the first time in Rhubarb history I’ve missed my usual Tuesday update. I’m sorry.
A few of you may already know, that I’ve been so incredibly fortunate as to receive an award this weekend. Or “Anyone for Rhubarb?” did. The “Ping-award” for best Danish webcomic. Big award show and all. I stood on the same stage as Jaime Hernandez, Jill Thompson and loads of Danish comic celebs. Brian Azzarello in the audience. Nervewrecking, but absolutely fantastic. I’m very proud and unbelievably humbled. Still, in the midst of all this very wonderful ruckus I kind of blew my deadline. Darn it!
I’m gonna try to make up for it though. I promise. For starters I made this little drawing. It may not look very award winning at first glance, but it is. Trust me.
Finally, let me just thank you all for your amazing support over the course of the Rhubarb’s existence. There most certainly wouldn’t have been any awards without it. Thank you, Rhubarb-people! You rock!
I hope to see you all again next Tuesday for another round of Rhubarb.
Scene from my everyday life. Yes, I am God.
Also, this is my very first true black and white comic on the Rhubarb. I felt it turned out sorta okay. What do you think? Do you also feel it’s black and white?
Earlier this week something quite fantastic happened. I got nominated for a Ping award. This is a huge deal for me, so I thought I would do a little bragging here on my “blog”. The concept “Ping Award” may not sound very familiar to you. Especially if you’re not Danish, but it’s a thing I assure you. A Danish-comic-award-thing in fact. It’s handed out each year to people in comics – Danish and international. I’m nominated in the category best Danish web-comic. Or Anyone for Rhubarb? is. I myself am not a comic on the web, but I am Danish. I suspect that helped a lot. Anyways, long story short; I’m proud as a peacock!
Sadly everything related to this is in Danish. It’s a pretty weird language. I totally get if you’re not into that, but I’m gonna leave you with a few links anyway.

Well, it’s no secret. The “holiday break” is dragging out a bit. I was hoping to make my comeback today, but alas the universe wanted it differently. Mostly Saturn and Jupiter. Not Uranus – that’s another bad joke.
For those of you wonderful creatures still hanging on though – Next Tuesday I promise – The magnificent return of the Rhubarb! – It’s gonna happen! (Better be magnificent *shaking fist at self*)
Until then I’m presenting you with this silly little thing that never made the original cut ages ago. Uranus.
