Spring is springing in Vancouver. Leaves a-poppin’. Blossoms a-blossin’. Manien in her gardens. Birds getting excitable.
I have been drawing away. Some cat comics. Getting moving on my Crying issue of Vinegar. Yes I’m doing it (Is anyone going to want to read this thing?) . Here are a few pages of tears, and a couple of off brand cat comics.
Once I finish the few cat comics I have ready to ink I will have 11 pages I think, which makes me feel good, puts me on a good track for having a book of cat comics for VanCAF in May. Also there is an issue of Vinegar I just need to finish up. I will likely indulge myself and collect the Blue-per Planet comics too. And besides the funny stuff there is the Vinegar I want to pull together about all the stuff that makes me cry. The problem with that one is that I start crying when I try to draw them! I have also been having some lovely horrible dental encounters this month and am tempted to try to pull them into a book of some kind. So that should keep me out of trouble for the next few months.
I like to put titles on everything, but I’m not sure all these cat comics need titles. Also I need to get a new date stamper! It is almost March!
It is interesting to have comics friends who I have known for over twenty years. I was hanging out with a couple the other night, and afterwards was reflecting on the ups and downs of our comics lives. We thrive, we have setbacks, we struggle, we keep on drawing.
Anyways, here is another cat comic, another Blue-per Planet.
I taught a comic drawing class at Langara in the fall, and the big project was a four page comic. So I drew a four page comic as well, which was good as I didn’t draw much of anything for the three months I was teaching the class. I may put this story in Vinegar 41. It has been a while since I put fiction in an issue of Vinegar.
Don’t worry. I have not gotten deadly serious. I am still all about poo and fart jokes.
