And why not another Blue-per Planet for good measure?
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.
Every February 1st people around the world draw a short comic about their day every hour, for each hour they are awake. Here are mine for this year.
Another cat comic!
And why not another Blue-per Planet? Apparently 2019 is going to be a silly year.
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.
I did another cat comic.
And this bit of high brow comedy inspired by watching some Blue Planet 2.
And a reminder that the Vancouver Comic Jam for January is this Saturday.
I had such fun drawing those cat comics, I drew some more (instead of doing the other things I should have been doing).
So this is 2019. Hard to believe we have been in the 2000s for almost 20 years. I guess I have done a lot of comics in that time. Looking back at my sketchbook from 2000, I already had notes for my comic The Adulation, which I wouldn’t draw until 2014. I was working at a dot com. Drew Jason and the Really Long Commute. Did my first comic for the internet, Down at the Black Box.
On the other hand over the past couple of months I have certainly not done a lot of comics. December was this mad scramble where I drew nothing. Just this past week I have finally gotten drawing a little again. Finally drew a couple of pages of cat comics, tentatively titled Yard Cats.
