Sketching and ripping off Calvin & Hobbes, basically. I just love the way you can present fully functional chapters in a story in just 4 to 6 frames sometimes, or even just 2 frames. Some of my favorite comics are still classic newspaper strips.
Working on Mayhem & Cuddles, academia, a rash of bands sending me records to review, and bill-paying work keeps me from doing much else (like the 4 other project folders in my laptop’s “WRITING” desktop file), but I still would like to start working on something else relatively “big” as The Underground is being worked on.
Oh well. Until then, check out The Abominable Charles Christopher, a weekly webcomic from the amazing Karl Kerschl. I found it because one of my favorite artists Skottie Young just did a guest strip. Also, don’t forget some awesome new comics like Greg Rucka’s Stumptown and Stephen Lindsay’s Jesus Hates Zombies volume 3!
Until next time, boys and girls…
