About EWG

Pre 2009

    • 2000-2005 - The College Years - while studying graphic design and fine art in college, I made extra money by doing occasional commissions for folks I met via DeviantArt.com and sold original character art pencil drawings on eBay. Just enough each month so I didn't have to ask Mom and Dad for Pizza and Beer money.
    • December 2005 - Graduated from WVU with a BFA in Graphic Design
    •  2006 - 2009 - Worked in advertising on publication, ad and poster layout design as well as client brand design in a fast paced deadline driven environment.  
    •  2006 - 2009 - rLike in college, I still did occassional character art commissions and pencil sketches that I sold on eBay for some extra pocket money. 
    2009
    • December 2009: (Exact date unknown) Launched Eryck Webb Graphics after moving to Wilson, North Carolina in pursuit of 'the next step' and finding nothing but disappointment with the job market in the Chapel Hill, Durham and Raleigh triangle area."Can't find work? I will generate my own work" was my mantra. I was inspired to take the limited experience and success I had doing occasional commission drawings in college and during my advertising job and create my own business out of it.  
    • 'Bump On A Log' webcomic launched. Created, Written and Drawn by Eryck Webb. Ended 2013. Entered it in a King Features Syndicate contest looking for a new ongoing comic strip. Made the final 250 entries out of 2000. Can be read in entirety at http://bumponalog.deviantart.com/
