Hi, my name is Aaron Uglum. I'm a Christian, I'm a cartoonist, and I live in rural Wisconsin. I've worked as a freelance graphic designer and illustrator for people in the United States, Canada and New Zealand.
Back in the ancient times, when dinosaurs roamed the earth and everyone had dialup, I ran two webcomics called The Flying Banner (about a superhero duck) and The Adventures of The Uglumboy (a comic journal) on my website, ReinLion Comics. A handful of folks might remember them.
Between 2012 and 2014 I released a few books of gag panels, which are available to read for free here.
My webcomic LABS ran from 2016 to mid-2019 and is also online.
I'm currently working on a project called BRYN, and developing the larger Shift Universe.
Why "Fugitive Ink Studio"?
"Fugitive ink" is a term for ink that changes over time, such as fading or changing color. Likewise, my art is also "fugitive." It has changed over time, and will continue to.
Also, "fugitive" doesn't inherently mean a criminal, but also means someone who has escaped from something. Which has personal meaning to me.
And the name sounds cool.
Why do you have three domain names?
I started with AaronUglum.com. While convenient and to the point, it's impossible to remember "Uglum."
Then I got LABScomic.com. Much easier to remember, but then LABS ended.
Now I use FugitiveInkStudio.com as my branding, but any of the three domains will bring you to the same site.
Are your comics for kids?
LABS and my gag comics are safe for general audiences. I didn't really write them with kids in mind, but there's nothing inappropriate.
My Fugitive Ink Comic Universe content can be of a much more serious tone at times, and sometimes deals with subjects and content that may not be appropriate for young readers.
