Questionable artwork and pedantic miscellany

But why kick? With its captivating characters, sprightly songs and zap-happy animation, Oliver & Company adds up to a tip-top frolic.

After three irrelevant pages, why did I add another? I almost didn’t but I felt, since day 2 began like this, I would be skipping an opportunity for day 3, to do it in a manner, while still irrelevant, less frivolous ultimately. To prove that I COULD, perhaps. I resent when people refer to this as if it is totally random, dismissing it after reading one page completely out of context, like it is Peanuts or Garfield or [something considerably less lucrative], but pages like THAT one certainly do not help my case.

I should be drawing these with thicker lines. i do not have control over the thin lines and those scale down better.

There’s only one person who can tie up people with a rattlesnake: Texas Pete!

This could be seen as hypocritical since I myself do not often retweet things, but I also do not encourage garbage endeavors unless I WOULD retweet them. I do not say things I do not mean unless backed into a corner, and I do not invite corners to tea. “Hey, this thing that didn’t work that I won’t even touch, you should keep doing that since it privately benefits me just a scrap.” I imagine the person or persons who instigated this comic strip have no idea that I interpreted their actions this way, but I get terrible/insulting advice from just about everybody, and I followed it for years and got nowhere. I am still nowhere but it is my own nowhere. And just since 2016 I have had four different people whose interests and goals are totally apart from my own use relationship talk toward me, up from none ever prior to then, so I must be doing somenothing right.
Anyway the point of the “snake” comics are always that the snake is a loser. Seeing it lose amuses me.

As a matter of fact, the shoe store’s owner, Zamiel Moloch happens to be a demon in disguise. He would eventually prevent Ernest’s sportsmanship with the basketball players by luring Ernest to arrogance.

shortly after I drew the scenes with kumquat’s komputers, it struck me how mundane and obviously based on contemporary computers they were, and I imagined I should have gone bigger and more old fashion,ed and stranger. but ten years on, and one more day on in the strip’s timeline, this computer now looks huge, bizarre and outdated.

it is a story about the Bobbsey family’s adventures trying to find the parents of a foundling baby. Since, by the 1960s, modern social services had rendered the original story utterly implausible, an entirely new novel was written about the twins’ adventures with a baseball-playing baby elephant

Page 23 of part 3 of this.
When I made page 22, I said I would try and reuse the backgrounds because they took so long to make. That really didn’t work! I can’t help but do everything weird every time so that it does not match anything from before. This kind of page takes so long that I forget what the actual story is. I will go back and populate more of those bottles and supply the tengu creature with legs and proper proportions relative to whatever doctrel gorp is in more frames if I feel suitably uninspired at a point in time when I have nothing better to do.

In spring we train real hawd, so we look good on our baseball cahds

page 22 of part 3 of whatever this is.
Not only does this page not accomplish anything, it was almost impossible to draw. And i worried with all the brown it would be very boring to look at, but I like how the colors worked out.
There are two more like this; maybe I will paste in the frames I just used and only change the relevant parts. It will still take a month and be a complete redraw but I will not have to worry about forgetting to include anything.

Maslin also found the film to lack in actual surfing content.[12]

page 21 of part 3 of this!
this page accomplishes one thing: it saves me from having to draw a character that looks like a cat in the future. my tolerance for cats has dwindled considerably since I first introduced this character without any attempt at “design” whatsoever.

The sequence that follows does not actually prove anything but i am amused by the script I wrote and the little previews I drew. it is all information that can be introduced later. And I tried to cram it into an absurdly high number of frames on one page, but hopefully restraint will win out and I will make two pages out of it, however little information is conveyed.

coming up the dancing dolls are bringing some smurf heat to the dance floor

page 20 of part 3 of this! Except it’s actually just part of page 19 again because I decided 19 was far too cramped, and there was one final frame I wanted to add in, which I was going to then have to put on the next page, which was already ludicrously cramped just in the layout stage, before I start adding in whatever has not even occurred to me yet. Notice how this still feels too cramped, and despite the copious amount of new drawing I have done, it still feels rushed and incomplete, if you want to thoroughly undermine my effort. It was terribly demoralizing to have fallen so far behind on redrawing old pages, so it seemed prudent to start redrawing new pages.

Also, I have been quite sick, my father has been in a hospital with an uncertain fate, and I have been futilely trying to get my service provider to fix my broken email but they inexplicably keep finding ways to prolong the “not reading what I say to them and repeatedly offering the same obvious and wrong solution” phase, while I am also sick and going to a horrible hospital that drains energy out of me that i don’t have because someone else is sicker than I am. I do not request or desire the sympathy of strangers, but I wanted to explain some of that somewhere, because I do not like submitting unsatisfactory work unless I also get to complain about it. However, this is a shorter negative portion than I usually accompany comic updates with, so I may be at last making real progress.

Rodney Dangerfield Is Rover, A Big City Hound Who Trades Bright Lights For Barnyard Laughs!

page 19 of part 3 of the dumb comic strip. I am glad these dark scenes have been moderately colorful.
Following this is an interlude with secondary characters that looks like it is going to be three terribly cramped pages. When I years ago drew in the requisite background data which this interlude as following from, I imagined it would be important, but it may ultimately be superfluous because I have realized while writing it that neither character thinks the interlude is all that special. In fact, the only important thing that happens in the interlude is the first mentioning of yet one other character whose appearance I have, as before, not written yet, and will not arrive at for rather some time. I go to great lengths to disguise the fact that I invent most parts as I get to them! Still theoretically easier than having a plan.

how are you gonna bring to the table that YOU are Harriet Tubman?

Whoopth. For the first time I completely forgot this website was here. Which is silly since I have a backlog of drawings that theoretically can be presented with minimal recontextualization. I just use too many gosh darn ding dang rink dink oing boing thank you moing websites, and I seem to have had visible existential crises on half of them. Including this one, but that is almost a tradition here. It should not lead to a lackage of updatage.

Warning, the fish is not a role model. It is not even human.
I think the creature may be a snake when it is treated badly, and a fish when it treats others badly.
Also, I do not personally think anybody with a reasonable job is a “hack.” Initially the question was “have you had any studio employment?” but late in the process it seemed wrong, yet I could not think of a better way to ask the question properly in the space I had left for it. In any event the point is that the fish is a jerk.

In terms of this article however, both types of organs count as tentacles because in relevant ways they are structurally and functionally similar.

One more redrawn page.
I did not consider that when redrawing old comic pages it may turn out impossible for elpse to be holding nemitz in the depicted manner.

I also did not give deep consideration to whether I should replace the psychedelic patterns in the doorway here. Initially, it should not surprise you, I had not yet designed an interior for the room. Now that I have one, it is less interesting to show that than the pattern. However, it is less distracting and confusing. As bland as it looks, if were to REDESIGN the room, then I would OBVIOUSLY not do it until after I drew this page!
the tower on an isolated island on the next page is a problem. every other exterior shot suggests a group of stupid little dome houses with just trees behind them. HOWEVAH 4c parmesan cheese it should be, i think, i hope, the last last last page whose original art needs to be 100% replaced. This was easily the least pleasant one.

Nobody I know has a website anymore
