150 ggmrs strips!

alright, let’s count it out.
  1. Dumb question
  2. dumb answer #1
  3. dumb answer #2
  4. good idea

    there is some debate as to whether or not a question can be an idea, or if it is the catalyst for an idea, but I think anything your brain generates is an idea, so I think it works. Today’s comic is the 150th comic strip of go go Mach rocket sheep, or as I’ve come to refer to it in my head, “GGMRS”, because that’s what I name the files. That’s in addition to over a thousand charlie and the ghost strips, and a couple space chuck graphic novels, and about a hundred half-started comic ideas.

I’ve always been of the mind that it’s better to run with an alright idea than it is to sit around doing nothing because the perfect idea hasn’t come along. I think the process of failing and make adjustments helps to refine the idea making process to begin with. Of course, it’s easier and much more comfortable to do nothing.

One of my favourite parts about being married is having someone to share all my stupid jokes with.  Once in a while, when I think my stupid joke is pretty funny and un-top-able, Diana will really pull through and one up me!  It leaves me speechless!  Even if it’s actually really funny, I don’t usually laugh when she one up’s me, because Diana is usually laughing hard enough for both of us!  Which is another one of my favourite parts about being married.

Take today’s comic for example!  This happened verbatim.  In this case, I said “shuf-fail”, and I thought it was funny and smirked to myself.  Then Diana said it wasn’t funny, and called it a “Shauf-fail”, (shauf being my last name), and then she laughed and laughed and laughed.  I had to admit, it was better then mine! haha.  Either way, we still had to go over and change the song MANUALLY.

So why didn’t I make the punch-line to the comic, “this is a shauf-fail?”  Cause neither of the characters is named “shauf”, and while I am, I don’t feel like breaking the fourth wall.  Maybe that’s a shauf-fail?  whatevs.  Have a great wednesday everyone!



…darn kids!

2013-3-27I wanted the last panel of this comic strip to be kids laughing at me.  I mean charlie.  Because this isn’t auto-biographical AT ALL.
But, I don’t really know how to draw kids.  With the new style, charlie has a bit of a kid-look to him…  but i can’t really figure out how to do kids in this new way.
Most of my favourite comic strips have kids at the centre.  Calvin and Hobbs is by far my favourite, and i have a soft spot in my heart for Charlie brown, and I’ve been reading through the years of bloom county!  SO!  completely un-authorized cameos.  I hope i don’t get in trouble, i can’t imagine that it would be a big deal, and if it is, i’ll just change it.  It’s not like i’m making money off of it.  Sometimes I forget how much fun it is to draw other people’s characters!

Everyone, have a great wednesday!  My parents fly out tomorrow night.  How exciting!
