A chain of events

It's like the domino effect. I had a box of dominoes, but there were only about twenty, so it wasn't really much fun.

I always wanted a twin or an older sister. *S* out of luck from the start! But a robot, now that's still possible.

It's getting hot out here

I used a brushpen to ink this one, which I liked, but was probably a poor choice for the text. This could have been a good way to end this comic, if I wanted to, since the b'ys are totally screwed. I always keep a deck of cards in the car, you never know when disaster may strike.

Here are a couple that were drawn for The Scope; hence the funny layout.
By the way, Ricky Gervais' new show Extras is the bomb.

Oh man I love boardgames, but hard times trying to find somebody to play with. When I was a kid, I used to put together the whole Mousetrap rig by myself for fun. Anybody remember Don't Wake the Dragon? That served as a nice little playset, too. I may still have that one out in the shed...

Chris Ware animated

There's an awesome little Chris Ware animation here (on Drawn! today). It's a segment from the new Showtime edition of This American Life, which I gather is a radio program in Chicargo. It’s the story of a class that becomes obsessed with fake video-taping everything.

Oh ponies

How did people manage to communicate back then, anyway? I'm not saying I can't live without my computer, but how the hell did anybody get anything done? People just droping by the ranch whenever they felt like it.

Yep, went to see Zodiac last night. Awesomely acted, extremely unsatisfying ending (but that's not necessarily a bad thing). Sometimes I get confused and have many questions, but I try to save them until after the credits. Most of the time.

2 for 1 Super Holiday Special

What is the deal with St. Patrick's day, really? I think I'll have to stop by Wikipedia this afternoon for some sort of explanation which may or may not be accurate.

They say if we already had time machines, there would be time travellers all over the place, bragging about it. I'd love to go back to the 40s when everything was still black and white and everyone used crazy slang and smoking looked really cool.

Coming Soon

Imagine if these guys were buddies. Oh, what fun times. What mischief. A heartwarming thought indeed.

George Sprott

I'm a big fan of Seth, and currently you can read a comic of his, called George Sprott on the New York Times website. It's basically the life story of an old-timey TV show host, although it doensn't really explain much about the man himself by the very end. There are a series of interviews drawn by people who knew Sprott, or were fans of him.

It's presented in 21 chapters, in PDF form. It looks a lot like Wimbledon Green, if you've had the pleasure of reading that. Be sure to check it out soon, who knows how long it will be online. Last year, this page was the site of Chris Ware's Building Stories, and that has long since disappeared.

Fun times

Went to see 300 today (or ZOO, as I like to call it). It's a pretty awesome looking flick. Lots of yelling though, so be prepared.

Chest of Hope

This is from a conversation I had at work last week. I have three virgin sushi sets that have yet to see the light of day, as I am the only one in the house that will eat it. And a lovely punch bowl set, in case I ever have to throw a retirement party.

Panel variation - good idea

I just came across this handy tool that someone sent me a while ago and I filed it away for good measure. I also just think it looks cool.

Jerk it up

This one sort of fits in with the larger, colour autobiographical comics I've done in the past. I seem to be on hiatus from those for a while. Eventually, I'd like to re-draw a lot of them. But for now, I'm enjoying this simpler, goofier style.
On a side note, I've been reading Scott McCloud's Making Comics, and it is a fine resource, let me tell you. Someday I may actually put it to use!

Welcome to my comics

Well, it was suggested that I start a blog for my comics, and here it is. I started making these simple, smallish pages for The Scope, a free entertainment newspaper in St. John's. I'll be posting some of these comics, plus more, three times a week. Be sure to drop by and make it a part of your weird online routine.

And I'm off to a good start, since this is Saturday and I'm a day late already. So here are TWO:
