This is my latest comic strip project, working title ‘Walden’.
Why a Blog? I stumbled across wordpress, and the world of ‘blogging’. It turns out to be the perfect tool to publish a daily comic strip. It allows myself and others to look at a group of strips, latest first, and comment on them. I remember reading that cartoonist (or any joke writer) should grade their work, then share them with friends and family and have them rate the work also before it reaches a mass audience. WordPress has a built in feature on each blog called leave a comment. The best thing you can do is leave an honest comment. It’s okay, I have thick skin when it comes to this stuff, mostly because I already had fun drawing it long before you saw it and I’ve already moved on.
Berkeley Breathed once said about his comic strips “If it doesn’t make me laugh, it doesn’t see ink.”, and Chuck Jones said that he worked with the faith that if it made him and his team laugh, the audience would follow. So, with that in mind, here are some things that have made me laugh over the past few months.
