Every once in a while at my job, I get to spend the day engaged in creative pursuits, writing, drawing, animating. The work is enjoyable! The time crunch is not. Today was one of those days- inbetween my meetings, I drew and animated and wrote and drew and animated like a madman, trying to get stuff done to the point so that the computer could render stuff while I was in my next meeting. Why do I say all of this?
Well, on a day like that, I don’t have a whole lot left in the creative tank. The truth is I have two or three killer strips (because my kids are ridiculous and had some real funny moments in the last little while) but I don’t have the energy left to get ideas onto the page. I’m looking at the clock and realizing I still gotta get some exercise in, and I still have a couple of hours of boring office work to get in. So instead, I present to you one of my favorite late-era Charlie and the Ghost strips I made in the last few years. This 100% happened at the ferry terminal in Vancouver, and I’ll never forget it. I almost laughed in her face.
