All right, here’s a new picture. What is a beet root anyway? I think someone said the words in my viscinity the other day and the name just stuck. Also, I’ve been watching this super lame show on Discovery called “A Haunting” about these people who all seem to be likely either making these stories up or having some kind of crack flashbacks, because the hauntings they’ve experienced are so cliched and also the recreations are very poorly acted. But for some reason I watched a marathon of them the other day. I guess this comes from that, too.
Update: my friend Kyle from the Writer’s Center Blog — which is a terrific blog — has posted a couple of my drawings for a caption contest he’s running over there. Check out his blog and the Writer’s Center website to see if you’d like to take any writing classes — the WC is located in Bethesda, Maryland and the classes are very much worth the money.
A new character here: a French tick. The plan is to have Spider, who is such a Type-A(hole) dude, be totally intimidated by the worldliness of the tick, whose name I haven’t come up with yet. All I know is he’s French and he’s a tick and he’s super pretentious. He may not even be actually French; maybe he’s from Reno but he’s just a con man or something. Anyway.
Boy, these drawings just keep getting more and more random. No real story behind this one, just pure weirdness at work. Hope everyone’s been doing well. I’ll try to get back into a routine of posting drawings more regularly — I just had a bunch of stuff happen, but things will get back to normal soon. Thanks for your patience.
I’m not sure where this one came from. I’ve been experimenting with different looks for Flip, and I kind of like this one.
All right guys, it’s your time to shine. See if you can come up with a caption for this one. This is the second time I’ve had Flip free-falling through the air in a cartoon, so I’m not totally sure what’s up with that.
I saw the film “Mongol” last night on the big screen. It was terrific — check it out if you get a chance. It’s about the childhood and subsequent rise to power of Ghengis Khan — and Khan comes off as a sympathetic character! The fight sequences are spare but incredibly bloody. The back story is methodical but very realistic (except in a couple of parts, where it gets lyrical but successfully so). Anyway, let’s see your captions!
