Summer’s End (words and no drawings)

August 28, 2014

The end of summer always feels like a real bad hangover… some fun getting there, but at the end all I seem to have is bad feelings and can’t wait for it to be over.  Perhaps, it’s like that Mitch Hedberg bit, where he compares himself to pancakes to his audience; super excited to see him at first but by the end, they’re fucking sick of him… summer is my pancakes.

I met a few women who were special in their own way, and managed to fuck up every single one of those “relationships”  One of those I truly blame myself.  Anyway, there is a month of summer left, but basically, the end of August is pretty much the end of summer in my eyes.  Also, this day makes a somber anniversary; it has been a year today since Wendy died.  It seems very fresh to me… It seems like we just met, and that was over two years ago.  By the end of that summer, we didn’t work out either.  I find it no irony that she died at the end of summer…

However, not to come off as completely morbid, the fall brings the end of greenery (is that such a word?) the cold brings a certain type or rebirth… I need it.

Wow… That title is something pretentious.  Anyway… I worked on this fucking thing for four months and promptly shelved it.  I probably have it in a box somewhere… That was also my very first laptop… 950 dollars, 30gigs of memory… That was just right before laptops dropped significantly in price… For 350 dollars, I can buy something ten times more as powerful.  I did just pick up a (used) Surface… I dig it so far. 

Anyway, I need to go back and dig up that zone… As I recall, I was trying to go with something surreal in the story telling; it wasn’t half bad as I recall.

Old Stuff… Better Stuff?

I have been working on comic strips since the late nineties, but probably didn’t feel that really had a “style” until about 2004 or so… 2003 maybe.   Anyway, looking back, I feel that I probably had a better handle of what I was drawing over all.  The Cat Boxing strips barely have a back ground nowadays.  Granted that the strip boxes are quite a bit smaller then they use to be… As opposed to 1/4th a page to 1/16. This particular strip was late 2003?

Maybe this will put a kick in my ass… Maybe.  Who knows…
