All of a sudden I find myself hip deep in comic strip projects. Tim Corrigan and I discussed my doing the art work for one of his "Mighty Guy Comics", when we were at S.P.A.C.E. last April. Well, I just received a post card from him telling me he had just about finished the script and it should be about 24 digest size pages. A day or so later I received a letter from Christoph Meyer with a script for 24 panels. He had asked a few months ago if I would be interested in doing a strip for his zine " 28 Pages Lovingly Bound With Twine", and I said sure I would love to. Couple that with the fact that I am trying to complete 32 pages of my own comic "NUT # 3", plus keep up my web comic , "The Propeller Beanie Report" ( about 4 panels a week). I also have to keep up my 2 page strip that runs in "The All Comics APA" bi-monthly. So I think you can see why I say I am hip deep in comics projects.
Knowing that I have all this to do, I usually walk into my studio, ( pictured above) look around, and then head straight for the X-Box and play " Brothers in Arms, Earned in Blood". I wonder why I don't seem to be making a dent in these projects?

New Homemade Komics logo

I was so impressed with the logo on Shawn Hoke's blog, "Size Matters", that I asked him if he could help me with placing one on my blog. Shawn was a big help, because I don't think I could have ever figured out how to do it on my own. I sure don't know any thing about html. So a big thanks to Shawn!
That said, I hope it is visible to all. The first time I did it, I was the only one that could see it.
The other thing I have noticed is that the color is not showing in the sky of the 3rd panel, and the word "Bonk". I guess I'll never quite understand how the internet works.

Making The Rounds

It seems that I have developed a routine that I go through almost every day with regard to sites that I visit on the intertnet. If you would like to be a hip underground cartoonist like me, you may want to follow this cyber space trail.
I start out with a visit to Size Matters. After seeing what's new there I head to Wasp Whispers, to see what Matt has to say. Then it's on to the Poopsheet Foundation , Rick Bradford's informative site. Optical Sloth is my next stop to see if I agree with Whitey's take on the comics he reviews. After that I check in at the forum located at Small Press Comics . This site is great for picking up small press related news. And just recently I have started to drop by Tea Krulos site Notes from the Joke Blog. Tea published Riverwurst Comics, and always has something interesting going on. And last but not least I sneak in and lurk around Ian Shires SPA forum.
By the time I finish my rounds the work day is just about over, and I can start thinking about wrapping up another hard day at the office.
