My Favorite Distraction…

August 19, 2010

So, I haven’t been working on much here, however I’ve been busy with work and whatnot, there isn’t much in the way of creativity.  I’ll probably have some stuff up here eventually, just not as frequent… maybe, I have a few more projects that are time sensitive, so you’ll see a little bit more from me… for those of you who give a shit.


Tankie: The Turret-Headed Boy (2008)

August 9, 2010

So… what can I really say about this.  For one, the panels are almost four times bigger than they were actually drawn on.  Two: I was working a temp-job at the time so this “strip” came from a result of bordom and probably a general lack of ideas… though I found it quite funny afterward… still do actually.  I think I had started several “Tankie” strips, but never finished them… probably for the best.

So, for ages I had thought of how to do this stupid strip… of course I put too much time into it, though it does show that I am mastering the four panel strip… Forever, it seemed that most of my ideas play out at least five panels… For some reason, I think I wanted to add a pause to it, but would it matter?

Anywho, as far as the content goes, this seems to happen more often than not.  I am fairly good about boundaries (most of the time) so if I use a public restroom, I’ll tend to not stand right next to someone else by while using the urinal… especially if there are like ten empty ones.  I’d like to think that there is a proper etiquette that is universal, but anyway…  I should mention that this happens all the time, I have no idea why people feel the need to pee next to someone else so close… Cripes I’m beat!

Rejected Cat Boxing: Asshole Fashion Review

First off:  I am NOT calling anyone a “fag”… this was a little while back when I was called a “fag” for my “trucker’s cap” which I wear often when I don’t give a shit how I look, which apparently is gay to some people.  I found it amusing that shortly after I was called a “fag”, a “gay” friend showed up shortly with a trucker’s cap… though he may have mentioned that it looked better on him than me, in which he would be correct.  Second: I was very disappointed with the second panel as I tried to cram in most of the strip’s dialog in it… also, I didn’t put any design on the hat through out the rest of the strip. Three: it’s plain sloppy, even for me.

Though back to my first point, I think there is probably a better way to do this strip without being totally put out… people who know me know that I am not trying to be anything but funny… still, this is probably one of three or four strips that will be rejected from the print for the Zine Symposium this year (more on that later)

Cat Boxing: Issues

Sort of a cliche I suppose.  Though originally it was going to be loads more cliche, so I think it works… for me anyway.  So yeah, I went to the shrink and by time we were done with this session, she suggested several pills I should take.  Now, if anyone knows me, I do NOT like taking any drugs of any kind… just not my thing is all.  But yeah… this past month did kick my ass a bit.  There were some nice moments, such as Sloane’s visit, though I have been in one of the most stressful moments of my life in the past couple of years… won’t share it here.  I do have some interesting dating stories though those will come up later, other wise I would get a lot of this…

Of course, I am somewhat selective in what I post… I’m not a complete idiot.  But yeah… after discussing various issues of what’s troubling you, you tend to feel beat-up.  Originally I was just going to have the monster look like the doctor, then the doctor saying something like “There, that wasn’t so painful.” though that seemed so contrived.  I was also going to have the “monster” (beit the Calendar or the doc) rip out the heart and use it as a yo-yo… ultimately, this works best overall.
