The third page. The "baby alley" reference is thanks to Chris (my wife) who used that line in her one (and only) jam comic.

Flow - Page Two

This is originally Flow stopped. It was a two page story called "Mr. Timmy Goes To The Dentist" about the world's most passive comic character. There were going to be a series of Mr. Timmy stories. Then I showed the two pager to my housemate at the time, Mark, and he said it should be longer, more involved. He said he never really got my stuff until he had read a whole bunch of it. So Mr. Timmy became the "hero" of Flow, which was to be my continuing story for years... except it bogged me down and I quit (twice).

Going for a limited colour pallet. I've never been a particularily good colourist, so this is all experiment for me. When it was published in How Dee, this (along with everything else) was black and white... maybe it should stay that way? I don't know.

Flow - Intro



Next Page

Welcome to Flow. This is a Patchwork Earth story I started back in 1994 (or maybe even 1993) and published as the 8th (and final) issue of How Dee. It ended with a "to be continued" but never was. I did one more page, then quit doing comics for 4 years. Then in 1998 I started again, did 5 more pages, then quit doing comics again for 7 years... until now. So Flow is the comic that killed my comics... twice. Let's see if three times is a charm! As of tomorrow, I will be posting a page a day (weekdays). So for about 3 weeks, it will be old material, then, after that, new stuff. I've already thrown out one page I did in 1998 (I wrote a plot twist that I don't think I even understood then!). Wish me luck!
