My name is Isaiah Olson, and I'm some guy from Wisconsin. I spend most of my time being 25 years old and sleeping. I'm currently studying at UW Oshkosh in the field of graphic design, but I'm also pretty into illustrating and comics. I live an incredibly mundane life and enjoy playing video games, watching shows, and regularly engaging in moderate-to-heavy snacking. I am easily winded but make up for it by finding few legitimate reasons to exert much physical energy. I frequently speak aloud to myself, but only if I'm certain that no one can hear me, and I often sing in obnoxious voices while driving alone.
If you'd like to contact me, I'd love to hear from you. I do see all messages directed at me (well, I guess except for any I inadvertently miss), and always do my best to respond to anyone who takes the time to get in touch with me. Although I do have a terrible memory and am easily distracted, so I can't always guarantee a timely response. The best way to get in touch with me directly is to send me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org
. I'm also on Twitter
, and there's a page for Nuclear Delight on Facebook
as well. All of these methods are tried and true. They're just great.
I've been drawing for as long as I can remember, and have been exercising my sense of humor for about the same amount of time. Writing has also always been a point of interest for me, and I found that comics were a wonderful marriage of all of these things. Over the years I've started and dropped a number of comic projects, but Nuclear Delight was the first to really build and carry any degree of momentum. It got its debut in late 2008 on a site called Meats and Fishes, which I ran with one of my friends. Not too long after that, we closed down the site and there was a pretty big lull in comic production, but I decided to try continuing ND on its own. Another friend of mine helped me get a site together, which is where you're at right now.
The comic falls into the "sometimes-autobiographical-and-sometimes-not-so-much" category. It started off with myself as the main character, but it wasn't long before I incorporated a second recurring character. So now the comic is about Isaiah and Emily, and their silly unadventures. They don't really go on adventures. That'd be too exciting.
The boy who speaks blue.
Out of touch with the world.
Retainer of frivolous knowledge.
The girl who sounds green.
Kind of a dick.
The voice of reason.
Probably a figment of the Collective Imagination.
