For some reason one can't enlarge the comics in my last posting....curious, because I did nothing different. I will re-post them and see what happens.

here's two more comics. In the one with the giant colourful balloon heads, I was playing with some watercolour pencils that were in an art room I was subbing. I don't think I like them, they didn't blend very well. I suppose you're supposed to see the pencil marks for the "artsy effect". Anyway, I doodled on the page to wrest it from the flames, I guess. it's inspired by this little house on Grovesner road that colin and I did a drive by of...( drive by seems the wrong word) well we new it was for rent, and checked it out. even though the neighborhood is seems ideal to have a half acre lot with a cracky garage and a cracky empty lot next door. good ole cracky shack. some day you will be mine.

So, dear readers, I've been away on Christmas vacation, exploring the big city of New York. I came back feeling inspired and cowed by the craziness. I was also intimidated by the fact that any drawing I do would have to have tonnes of Katsuhiro Otomo style buildings in it....every vista looked like a panel out of pre-disaster Akira comics. Here is the comic from just before we left....I know it says NOV in the corner with no date, and part of the events happenend in mid november, but the real date for this should be DEC 6th!

And here is the first comic I finished about our Christmas in NYC. Mostly we did anecdotal little doodles and such. This comic started with me drawing colin , (bottom left) wearing this hairband I bought in union sqare. it was olive green and matched his sweater, but it had pink bunnies on it. he wore it all day long, out in public, for a couple of days. I said it was his new york baddass look. After I drew him, he drew me wearing these fake Tom cruise ray ban sunglasses I bought. I don't smoke, by the way, it's just for looks, so stop freaking out. We finished it off with Colin's sister Eleanor, just loooking baddass, since she's always a NYC baddass. Eleanor suggested we add their mom looking really nervous, so Colin drew Evelyn in the background and the city scape behind us. she wore this red outfit every day so we could find her in a crowd. There you go, two comics, you slathering Jackals!!
