Seat Check Funnies

By popular demand (of a couple of people I work with), here are the comics I did back in '98 while I was working online. This is the first half of them... I will post the rest tomorrow.

The Tablet

Ok, this isn't much of a comic. I was just so excited to get the tablet I ordered that I was playing with it this morning. I was almost late for my last day of work (for a while). As of 4:00 today, I am a stay-at-home dad for 2 months. I'm really looking forward to it.

Dream: October 11, 2005

A dream from a couple of weeks ago. I sketched it in my sketchbook at the time but only got around to drawing it last night. I was too lazy to go find references for real birds, but I kinda like my made-up ones. Still haven't got the tablet, so limited colour for now. I think it works for this strip.

From a letter by Franz Kafka. I've done a few Kafka related strips, but this is the best. I published it in How Dee 7 (I think).

Getting To Know You...

A simple little strip that was in How Dee #6. That issue had half autobiographical stuff, half fictional (Patchwork Earth) stuff. At the time I was working in a bookstore and the character in the last panel appears in a couple of Patchwork Earth stories as a bookstore employee. There isn't anything I absolutely love about this strip, but I still like it enough to re-publish it. One thing I don't really like is my dependance on a thick pen for the outlines and a thin pen for the details, rather than trying to blend the two. All the strips I did around this time were in the same style.

Fred's New Friend

Fred is a character I've been drawing since I was about 15 (at least). I've done a bunch of comics with him in them. He's kinda the central character to the beginnings of the Patchwork Earth. I'll post some older Fred stuff soon. I think I want to colour it first though...

No Comic Today

I decided not to post a comic today. I spent all my free time researching a drawing tablet and finally ordered this one. I should have it in a couple of days.

I also wanted to put up a couple of links to comics I've come across that are really good. Jason Turner does some really nice stuff, especially this one which takes place near where I used to live in Toronto.

Thingpart by J. Sayers is very odd indeed, but I think about this strip and how brilliant it is a lot.

I think you will see a lot more colour in my comics once the tablet arrives. Right now I'm working with a very useless mouse.
