Dept. of Too-Much-About-Me – Part 1

December 14, 2009

Here’s an on-line chat I did with the Washington Post in March of 2004 – about 10 months after Bo Nanas was launched.

(Actually, there is no “Part 2.” I was going to post a link to an interview – in Spanish – that was done for a newspaper when I visited Paraguay a couple of years ago, but it’s no longer on the web. Consider yourself lucky.)

Thursday is the new Sunday – Family ties

December 10, 2009

The Sunday strip rerunning on Gocomics.com today features all the members of my family. Here’s the scorecard:

1 my nephew Mathew, 2 my brother Jay, 3 my nephew Thomas, 4 my sister-in-law Kelly, 5 my mom Elaine, 6 sister-in-law Bettina, 7 my sister Lori, 8 my niece Michayla, 9 my dad Jack, 10 my nephew Nick, 11 my niece Brittney (yep, I named Brittney of the Squirrel Scouts after her), 12 my mother-in-law Nancy, 13 my father-in-law Ron, 14 me, 15 my wife Jocelyn.

BTW, “Swiggaleski” is the combo of mine and my wife’s last names.

It’s beginning to look a lot like… (Part 2)

This year, like last, I did special artwork to count down to Christmas for the Gettysburg Times (the only newspaper in the world where Bo Nanas is still printed). I’ll run them every Wednesday until the big day.

Thursday is the new Sunday – Pop up

The Sunday strip rerunning on Gocomics.com today is a version of what is sometimes called a “wallpaper gag” because of the repeating images.

The drop panel above is a literal peek behind the scenes.

FREE Bo Nanas holiday greeting card

December 1, 2009

Who says that we’re a paperless society? Not me. And to prove it I’m gonna send you a free Bo greeting card to print out and send to your friends the old fashioned way – non-electronically.

Here’s the front of the card. The inside says, “May the season bring you big, unwieldy boxes of holiday cheer.”

All you have to do is e-mail me and I’ll send you the pdf. It’s as easy as falling off a Christmas tree.

(For personal use only.)

Thursday is the new Sunday – Rain, rain, go away

The Sunday strip rerunning on Gocomics.com today is an OK gag, one better suited to summer, but we’ve been having so much rain here that it ends up being appropriate.

The drop panel above shows why Bo will never go hungry.

The Sunday strip rerunning on Gocomics.com today is a bit sad – I feel bad for the woman – but at least Bo was able to help her.

The drop panel above features a accessorised sideways “head peak”

Super fan Dorian pointed out that there is a spectacular mistake in the strip on Gocomics.com today. Take a peek at it. Go ahead, I’ll wait.

(Emoticon of me whistling.)

Did you see it? (You’re disqualified if you read down to the comments since the answer is there.)

Thursday is the new Sunday – Everything must go

Once again I’m ambivalent about the Sunday strip rerunning on Gocomics.com today. Once again, I like the basic premise, I just don’t think it pays off strong enough.

And I haven’t the slightest I idea what i was trying to get across with the drop panel above. Any ideas?
