Lonely, Press Play.

It’s been a rough fall/winter/spring.  Mostly of loss and no output.  Not to mention loads of disappointments, but I’ll draw those later.

I’ve been an absolute recluse as of late; I mean I have been getting out and about, but I’m probably more cautious about it or at least overly self-aware.  I let my ego take over too often and it doesn’t bode well for me.  I’ve had more disappointing dating experiences lately than I have in sometime.  Melissa and I didn’t work out for reasons that are our own, but ultimately, we were not on the same page.  So I’ve been dating here and there, but not all that well.  She actually has a new dude, which I have mixed feelings, not really… If she’s happy, then who really gives a shit what I think.

So yeah… Art.  I’ve been really suppressed by my own admission.  I really need to sort it out better, but in the meantime, I try to keep my head straight.  It’ll get better I’m hoping… In the meantime here is a drawing of a girl named Amy.

Cat Boxing: Apollo LM-5

Okay, so this is the first strip I’ve done since last summer… probably since June maybe? Anywho, as I really like this strip, I feel that I can add more into the background. Aside from that, I pretty much summarized everything I wanted to within three panels.

I title is from a crude joke (EDIT: was… I have since changed it, which was “What do Neil Armstrong and Michael Jackson have in common”, in which I’ll let you search out the punchline on your own. Apollo 11 is of course the mission that was part of the first moon landing I assumed that the landing pod (Apollo LM-5) had three legs… could have had four, but who cares really…

Obviously, there is a lot of subject matter going on, but either way… I’d like to think that I’ll stay on top of the strips, and I have one in the can… hmm, seems I have something more to say here; I don’t know.  I will say that I was probably making more of a statement than trying to be funny, profound, whatever… this is more of a journal/blog. I do like to make people laugh, at times it doesn’t always work that way… I’ll be funny later.

More on the way

Its been awhile since I’ve drawn anything.  Not like I haven’t taken long gaps before, but I have good reasons for it; pretty much what my next strip is about as a matter of fact.

I must admit that I’m quite happy with it.  There really isn’t a joke to got with it as a spoiler, I never said I was funny either.  Actually, that’s not entirely true but who cares; keep your eyes and mind open.

Shifting gears (Satchy and me)

So I decided that I should work on something more adventurous… So far a girl and her personal own big foot…
image

Not exactly a new idea, but in my voice it’ll be interesting to those who are familiar with my work…

Admittedly, for my “style” I quite like the outcome… I just need to figure where I’m going to go with this

Cat Boxing: That One Song From The Damned About Their Fans Sounds Nice

This strip basically about two different encounters I’ve had with “fans” of my comic… the cigarette burner I actually ended up with going home with… she didn’t get all that weird until I was at her place… I actually tried to leave right away, but she kept crying, it was a whole thing.

Image

The whole “vagina abuse” conversation was something that was brought up a different time… that ended abruptly.  So yeah… my “fans”  I don’t actually have fans as I do people who read my comic strip.  Though the people who call themselves “fans” end up being the odd ones.  Anyway, I’m all doped up on coffee and sugar… gross.

Oh yeah, stick figure Abe makes an appearance.

 

Cat Boxing: I See The Future And You’re Dead There.

So, I have a long story about this…it use to be fairly to the point, now not so much.  I worked on this strip before my mother’s heath took a bad turn.  The original title was “My Mother The Poorly Tuned-Up Car” , which is a very obscure reference to a show called “My Mother The Car”  The title makes me laugh. However, as I had mentioned, my mother’s health isn’t the best, so there is that.

Image

The strip is not so much about my mother, as it is about my mother’s side of the family, and how fucked up that side of the family is, health wise and mentally.  I was going to change the title to be a pun on “genes”, but no… anyway, yeah.  The title now pretty much says it all… it doesn’t matter where you’re family comes from, how healthy or unhealthy you’ve been, we’re all going to the same place.  I’ve been in a “mood”

Cat Boxing: Lessons In Chemisty

I’ve had some idea how to do this strip… I probably could have done this as a “12 panel” strip, but I as I had mentioned, it’s good for me to try and keep thing good and focused within four panels.  With that said, this one is still text heavy and probably hard to read and perhaps I haven’t got my complete thought across.  Basically, this strip has to do with dating and how I’m not all that good at it. 

Image

Often, do I see mismatched couples, in which I question “how does that work?” and then I immediately think, “Well, good for them.”  I’m sure I’ve dated people in which people turn there head and think, “Really?  Him?”  So I get it.   Chemistry is a strange and powerful thing.  I tend to have it with people on occasion, but not so much lately.  I do have a new “online dating fail” strip I want to work on soon… I have plenty of ideas.

Cat Boxing: On The Table

Click to make all big and shit

Sur La Table is a kitchen goods store, though several locations I believe have demonstrations often, I use to mistake them for a fancy pants bistro… Either way, I’ve never been to one nor do I have a desire to go anytime soon.

Image

So the title is the English translation of “Sur La Table”… and I really didn’t know how to pronounce it nor do I really do now.  This was an actual conversation I had, and most people who know me, should know I’m just going to butcher the shit out of anything I can’t pronounce within two tries… pretty much the point of this here strip… thanks for reading.

Punch lines that have no joke

Failed comic strip idea… But before Not Me went the way of the eraser, I thought I’d preserve my bad idea. The strip had come from the time I yelled at my co-workers for taking my work cart but no one admitted to me that they did, so I yelled at them, “Who took it then, the fucking Not Me ghost from Family Circus?” I could have drawn that idea, but it would have not gone much further than the actual sentence. But yeah… Just one more bad idea

Cat Boxing: Head

I have this dream often… the dream is that I am out and about, usually at a restaurant, then I excuse myself to use the bathroom, and I look into the mirror and then my teeth start to fall out.  This in actually too common of a dream and always weirds me out.  So, I mentioned this to my therapist and she said something underhandedly (close to “fucked up in the head”) So I question her credentials.

Image

I actually question her about quite a bit of what she recommends to me.  That lady wants me to pop pills… even has a “friend” she recommends.  Don’t ask me why I’ve been seeing her for the past few years… perhaps because she is located down the block.  Anyway the title is a play… actually, not even a play on the Monkee’s movie “Head”, the strip is called “Head” due to it being simply about my “head” dream… not so interesting.
