Watterson, you sure can draw

the end of the bookThis is the last page of the new book!  I just sent the first draft of the book off, and I should have my prototype soon!  I already know there are like 15 problems with the draft, but that’s OK, it’s easier to fix them when I have a hard-copy in hand that I can mark up and whatnot.  If there are any calvin and hobbes fans, this picture should look sort of familiar!  I’ve always been a huge bill watterson fan, and blatantly ripping off his art reminds me of how amazing an artist he was and how far I have yet to go.

Yes, it is the end of an era!  The last time I compiled a book of all the gag-a-days (charlie and the ghost: just the classiest), afterwards, i started a 100 strip storyline (charlie and the ghost: slow day).  I don’t quite know what i’m going to do differently this time, but I know that changes are on the horizon and I’m going to have to change my drawing routine.

In any case, and whatever I end up deciding to do, I know that I need to take a bit of a break.  And so I am going to!  Come november 3rd, I’ll have a clearer picture of what the future of this comic looks like, and will start posting again!  See you all in a week.

 

lately, when I try to write music…

2013-10-9I have TERRIBLE ideas when it comes to writing music.  I will start with an idea, like “OH MAN, I’M GONNA MAKE A POP PUNK ALBUM FOR FUN” and then I’ll record just a trial song and it will sound awful but i’ll be all “WHATEVER PUNK ROCK” and then I’ll write some lyrics and it usually starts out something like “FEELINGS” and then I give up and draw something to build up my self esteem.  *sigh*.

This comic was meant to be a bit of a peanuts tribute.  Anyhoo, hope everyone has a good wednesday!  😀
