French Toast is Everyone’s Favorite Drink

with 6 comments

For some reason, I really struggled with this one. It’s definitely more of an in-joke sort of journal comic, and even then, conveying what was so funny/adorable about this diner moment was hard. That third panel got redrawn a few times. At one point, there were laughing, floating heads. Yeah, I dunno.

But I drew it. It is done.

Next on the list? Wedding registry comic. Oh boyyy…

Well, the rain exploded with a mighty crash
As we fell into the sun
And the first one said to the second one there
“I hope you’re having fun”

Offering a Sign of Peace

with 6 comments

024-PeaceSign

In case it’s not clear on what is happening in that third and final panel, let me use words to explain what my drawing skills cannot: Tara and I were giving each other a sign of peace, first with a peck on the lips and then moving on to kiss each other’s cheek…except we both turned into each other’s face and ended up smushing our faces together. We then spent the next five minutes trying not to giggle over this because, y’know, we were in church.

And it seems that’s not the place where you belong
And it seems that’s not the place where you belong
When there’s no sun and there’s no moon
And there’s no stars, child, have you gone crazy

Willpower from Supertown Emotes Like Crazy

with 4 comments

Expressions-Willpower

That’s William, a.k.a Willpower. He’s quite a character (pun intended).

One of the interesting–and challenging–aspects to my forthcoming webcomic Supertown is that I’m drawing characters without noses, ears, arms, and legs. Older women will be retaining their boobs to please the pervs. That means, when it comes to emotion and such, I have eyes, eyebrows, and a mouth to work with, as well as the occasion action line or body twist. Challenging, sure, but it’s amazing actually at how much can be accomplished in a matter of a few lines.

Either way, I’m really looking forward to getting this online. Will keep y’all posted.

Boy, you’re gonna carry that weight
Carry that weight a long time
I never give you my pillow
I only send you my invitations
And in the middle of the celebrations I break down

A Comic Strip from Many Years Ago

with one comment

…ah, yeah. 1998. What a year for drawing about cats eating frogs eating flies! I guess that would place me at around…15 years old. Eep! Also, please note that I still letter my comics THE SAME FREAKING WAY ELEVEN YEARS LATER.

So yeah, my sister D was recently cleaning up around her condo and she stumbled upon a letter I wrote to her when she was in college, and this half-pint of a comic strip was included. I have no recollection of ever drawing it or writing it, but that’s the best part about unearthing this lost “gems.” I’m sure there’s more out there…yet this makes me sad still about the Appalling Purging of 2000, where I trashed and ripped up a ton of my stuff in an angst-emo-fueled fit of rage. Sigh…

We didn’t start the fire
But when we are gone
Will it still burn on, and on, and on, and on…

Lunch Meat Frowns

with 9 comments

Still on hiatus here, still enjoying my time off from comics on the brain 24/7, but I figured it wouldn’t hurt to post a “hey, still alive!” sort of thing. So, um…still alive! I’ve been doing some doodling and other artsy stuff lately, with most of it posted over at my deviantART account for those interested.

Anyways, enjoy the lunch meat comic. No joke, my grocery shopping lately for two weeks’ worth has totaled something like $12.00. Impressed?

I’ve been jumping from the tops of buildings
For the thrill of the fall, ignoring sound advice
And any thought of consequence
My bones have shattered
My pride is shattered
And in the midst of this self-inflicted pain
I can see my beautiful rescue

Rain’s a Pain, Snow’s for Hoes

Oh, that Momma Dukes! Weeks later, when I told her I’d be drawing a comic about this little conversation nugget, she had no recollection of ever saying it. Hmm. Someone needs to eat more blueberries. Or play Brain Age.

Question of the day: Would you rather be caught in the rain or buried in the snow?

It’s gonna take a lot of time
Before I can cross that finish line
And when I can’t take the fall
I really wanna make that call

Getting Accosted in a Parking Lot

He needs to work on his sales pitch a bit more, methinks. If only he’d been trying to sell me an Xbox 360 or a Boston terrier or a tuna sammich with black olives from his scary rape-van then I’d have been all like, “YES, I DO KNOW I WANT ONE OF THOSE THINGS!”

Question of the day: Have you ever been buttonholed like this before?

It’s not so bad being trendy
Everyone who looks like me is my friend
Please don’t hate me because I’m trendy
They’re not gonna laugh at me again
