Fotographical Friday: comic strip sales kits drying out after a plumbing incident in the basement

May is the new February (I guess)

May 13, 2010

Yesterday was the end of the Mrs. Yannes/Valentines series rerunning on If you want to read it from the beginning, start here cuz I’m going to throw out a spoiler below.








The seed of the idea came of a Valentines-themed coupon we got in the mail from out car repair place. Then I had the idea of Mrs. Yannes recognizing her lost love in the cartoon of the muffler. Realizing that she actually resembles a spark plug came much later in the writing process. And, wow, I’m glad it did.

Reader Wildcard24365 was nice enough to comment, “Touching, yet consistently surrealistic.”

Thursday is the new Sunday – Pop goes the…

May 13, 2010

The Sunday strip that’s rerunning on today doesn’t have the greatest end gag (does it really get across the craziness of Mrs. Yannes?) but I like the art and concept.

I think I was trying to represent the idea of a seismic rumble in the unseen-until-now drop panel. Once again, not sure if it works too well.

Apologies all around.

Thursday is the new Sunday – Wrap it up

March 18, 2010

Sometimes you (meaning me) write a gag that only has a couple of panels and really should be a daily, but it has so many words that it just has to be a Sunday strip. That’s what happened with the three-months-too-late (or nine-months-too-early) Christmas-themed Sunday that’s rerunning on today.

I’m pretty sure this is the one and only Sunday appearance of Brittney of the Squirrel Scouts. If you had asked me what color her uniform is before I reviewed the strip to write this, I wouldn’t have had the foggiest. I guess I made it brown cuz of squirrels. (Yep, sounds logical.)

The unseen-until-now drop panel above came from an idea to do a Sunday strip that was just a piece of Bo Nanas wrapping paper. Granted, it was a cop-out and my long suffering editor Amy poo-pooed right away. (I’m not sure I even got to the end of my sentence.)

Thursday is the new Sunday…on Friday

March 12, 2010

Y’know, it’s Spring Break and I’m the busiest I’ve ever been, thus I’ve been neglecting my bloggin’ chores. So to recap: the Sunday comic that should run in December but is running on a Thursday in March and I’m writing about it on Friday.

I believe this will leave a big hole in the space/time/comics continuum, so watch your step.

The Sunday strip that reran on yesterday had a concept that I thought was pretty clever…until my editor told me that upside down Christmas trees actually exist. They’re artificial rather than real, but still, it popped my balloon a bit.

In the unseen-until-now drop panel above is an appropriately decorated “tail peek”…if it was three months ago, that is.

It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas…

Well, it is over at where the calendar is more of a suggestion than anything else. The next few weeks of strips are my take of “Twas The Night Before Christmas” starring Bo and the surly mall elves.
