Breaking the block

Sometimes the best way to come up with a good idea for a comic or a drawing or a poem or a song or anything creative is to just make a bunch of bad stuff until you come up with something that isn’t terrible. Then you take that thing and polish it up until it’s alright. Make some alright stuff and think about it and develop it until it’s something sort of cool. Do that long enough and you can usually break out of a block.

sometimes, you wake up with a killer idea and it’s almost like you’re hand is Flying frantically, trying to draw out the idea before you forget it and it’s gone forever. When that happens, all the practice you struggling through the block will come in handy.

anyways! Happy Saturday!

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.

Embracing the inevitable

cge105 cge106 cge107 cge108 cge109

All the comics this week have something to do with embracing the inevitable.  I started the week off with a healthy dose of complaining about how inevitable it is to see videos i don’t wanna see due to Facebook auto-playing everything (regardless of how many times i turn auto-play off).  Writer’s block: inevitable.  Getting older and uglier:  inevitable!  Having TONS of great toys, only to have your kid be more interested in a box?  Yep, that’s inevitable.  And finally, frustration with entitlement and the political system.  inevitable.
