Self taught artist and non-self taught writer John Allison accidentally became one of the first webcomic artists with his daily Bobbins strip starting in 1998. He rose to prominence in 2002 with Scary Go Round, which ran for seven years and spawned eight printed collections. During this time he designed a lot of tshirts that people really liked, and a few that people just didn't understand at all. Despite giving away almost everything he has ever drawn for free on the internet, he's earned a living for eight years this way. His current project is called Bad Machinery and it's about mystery solving children. You'll like it!
