What's The Worst Thing That Can Happen?

I did this strip just after graduating University and moving out on my own. It was published in How Dee number 2, along with a whole bunch of other stories about living on my own.

The Spider and The Moon - A 24 Minute Comic

Yesterday I was reading some comics online and came across a few 24 minute comics. I thought... I can do that, but I'll do a panel a minute for 24 minutes. So I did it. I actually had a minute at the end to go back and do some shading.
It is very influenced by The Beanworld and is actually tangentially a Patchwork Earth comic. It fits in with FLOW, which I think I am going to start publishing here next week.
Oh, and yes, I spelt "believe" wrong. I kept trying to remember i before e, but when you only have a minute a panel, you have to keep going.

Breaking Up (Strip Fight) - Version 1

This is my first (of two) entries to Strip Fight for the topic of Breaking Up. This is the first time I've entered and I need all the support I can get, so go on over and vote high for me!
On a slightly less self-serving note, this is the first strip I've done (since Hair!) all on the computer. I think it turned out ok, but I see lots of room for improvement. Tomorrow I will post my other Strip Fight entry. It has a dinosaur!
