So, what is
Today Nothing Happened?
"Today Nothing Happened" is a journal comic that was started as a project in my Getting Published and Self-Publishing class. We were to draw one comic a day, for 28 days, mostly so that we could make a minicomic and website out of them; however, I enjoyed the project so much that I decided to keep it going for as long as I could.
Even when things seem ridiculous, remember: this is a journal comic. That means there's truth in every page.
TNH updates three times a week on Sundays, Tuesdays, and Thursdays at midnight.
Who are you?
Me? I'm Shazzbaa, the artist and, consequently, the main character of TNH. I recently graduated the Savannah College of Art and Design, majoring in Sequential Art, and am currently figuring out how to make both comics and money simultaneously, and spending more time than I probably should playing D&D.
Well, and drawing, but you can never have too much drawing!

Is this comic okay for kids?
Depends on the kid! SOME of the strips are totally kid-friendly, but I classify the comic in its entirety as "PG." I try to keep it relatively work-safe, but even so; we were college kids when I started this, so every once in a while the entire strip will be spent discussing hypothetical strippers or something similarly questionable.
But here's a simpler answer: the second strip in the archive is proooobably my most uncomfortable. If you'll let that one slide, you likely won't have a problem with this comic.
What are the Incentive comics, and why don't some pages have them?
Today Nothing Happened is currently listed on the TopWebComics.com webcomic directory, and the more votes a comic gets, the higher they're listed! Because people who vote for TNH are awesome, I started doing an extra comic that you only get to see if you vote. But then I am also a softie and didn't want it to disappear forever, so two months later, the incentive shows up in the archive as an "Old Incentive for This Comic" link.
Some comics in the archive that should list incentives don't; incentives from comics 98-135 were lost in the Laptop Crisis harddrive crash.
Fat... animals...? What?
This started as a silly joke-doodle with a note that "This space will contain a comic in about 2 hours. Right now it is a fat dragon. We apologise for the inconvenience, - Mgmt" and ever since, when I can't quite get the comic done on time, I'll pick a random animal and draw a chubby version to tide people over until I'm done, because for some reason this is something that I can draw very quickly. Also, I kind of think they're cute.
They disappear when the comic gets finished, so they're kind of a special, limited-time thing.
What is the Donation Wallpaper, and how does that work?
My Paypal account is basically like my tip jar! If you like my work, and want to support me and my comics, then you're really awesome, and can donate any amount through Paypal donations and I will super appreciate it. <3 So much so, in fact, that I'll send you a secret wallpaper as thanks!
These desktop-wallpaper-sized fat animals, like most fat animals, are limited-time-only; every month I draw a new one.
Here's a sneak peek at this month's:
What is up with the cast page, man? It's so behind!
Ahhhhhhh I know! Here is the deal - it's really hard to make a useful cast page for this comic, especially since I really don't know who is and isn't going to be a major character. I'm working on setting up something a little more practical and relevant, but until I figure out how to do that, the cast page is sort of neglected. Sorry about that!
You never answered my email/facebook message/deviantart note/twitter reply/psychic communication! Are you trying to send a subtle hint that you don't want to talk to me?
I am not the sort of person to send subtle hints. The truth is that I am just REALLY BAD at answering messages, which is terrible since I operate on the internet. If I never answered you, there's a really good chance I just...answered the question in my head and forgot to do it in real life as well.
I do try to be more reliable about answering my e-mail, though I am still very slow. If you haven't gotten an answer from me and really want one, feel free to send another message about it. I won't be offended or irritated, I swear; it's actually very helpful for me since I am somewhat scatterbrained.
Wait, if you're on facebook ... wanna friend me? :"D
