Loading Artist is a weekly gag-a-day Webcomic by Gregor Czaykowski and can be found at

While the majority of the comics are in the style of gag-a-day comics, there is a subtle overall storyline. The comics that do not feature the recurring characters, are actually comics created by the main recurring protagonist. The main recurring protagonist is an artist who draws the comics, and wants to get better at art (thus Loading Artist as he is still in the process of loading).

Recurring characters (no official names yet):

  • The Guy with the Hat aka Hat Guy aka Loading Artist aka Gregor
  • The Girl aka The Girlfriend aka Jes
  • The Friend
  • The Cat aka Cat
  • The Bird
  • The Grim Reaper aka Grim aka Death
  • The Boss aka Gamework Boss
  • The Colleague aka Gamework Employee

Loading Artist provides examples of:

  • Bait-and-Switch: Quite frequently.
    • Like in this strip where the heroes are thought dead but then it's revealed the dead bodies were someone else's.
  • Pity the Kidnapper: Happens with this bratty kid that nags its kidnapper with Are We There Yet? to the point where the man loses his patience and lets the kid go.
  • Puddle-Covering Chivalry: Subverted in this strip where the man places his jacket over a puddle but it turns out he was using it to do laundry rather than helping his date across the puddle.
  • Stock Money Bag: Parodies in this strip where the hero's business plan consists of two steps: (1) buying stock money bags and (2) actually filling them up with money.
