Tim Buckley Day is an event widely observed by the webcomic
community commemorating the artist Tim Buckley
and his comic Ctrl+Alt+Del
. On this day, traditionally April 1st, webcomics pay homage to the wellknown comic by playfully lampooning Buckley's distinctive style, often recreating his controversial "miscarriage strip
" to humorous effect.
Non-artists may recognize the holiday by using the CAD-popularized emoticon, B^U
in online conversation.
Notable participants include Scott Ramsoomair of the comic VG Cats
and Joel Watson of HijiNKS Ensue.
