#9: First Impressions


Truly, I am among the sharpest wits of my generation

You might notice something funny about the speech bubbles. That's because I used a thin permanent marker to ink them. I'm pretty sure I'll never do that again.

Albums during drawing:
"Summerteeth" - Wilco
"Either/Or" - Elliott Smith
"Young Team" - Mogwai
"Sound of Silver" - LCD Soundsystem

#6: Totally Lost

This particular incident has never happened to me, but I wouldn't be surprised if someone told me they'd experienced personally.

Albums while drawing:
"Yankee Hotel Foxtrot" - Wilco
"The Creek Drank the Cradle" - Iron & Wine

...I guess this one was pretty quick to draw

You wanted it, you got it. [implied] HARDCORE NUDITY!

Officially, this is comic #5, and is also officially my favorite as of now. I cannot stop giggling at panel 1 and panel 4.

Please ignore the weird bed.


Albums during drawing:
"We Are Still Alive" - Latterman
"Broken Social Scene" - Broken Social Scene
"Led Zeppelin" - Led Zeppelin (thus the poster)
"Led Zeppelin II" - Led Zeppelin

#4: The Hunt

Fourth comic woooooooo

I really have horrible handwriting in this, but on the plus side it's been getting better with each comic I do. I am so pleased with how that guard came out that I want to make him a reoccurring character. We shall see.

Albums during drawing:
"Blonde On Blonde" - Bob Dylan
"Neon Bible" - Arcade Fire
"In Rainbows" - Radiohead
"What's Going On" - Marvin Gaye

#3: Anchorman

Third comic wooooooo

I'll stop writing "wooooo" when I stop being mildly excited. Should be soon.

This is only the second time I've drawn this strip, so I guess it's getting better? You'll probably notice the lines are thinner. That's because this is when I started drawing with larger panels and scaling them down when I scan them. Looks kinda weird...

Since I don't really time myself when I draw these things, I started to write down the albums I listen to while drawing each strip. It gives me a rough estimate on how long it took me. For this particular one:
"Blue Screen Life" - Pinback
"Bat Out of Hell" - Meatloaf
"Turn Up the Punk, We'll be Singing" - Latterman
"No Matter Where We Go..." - Latterman

#2: He Has the Keys

Second comic woooooo. The madness continues.

This is another one of those comics I've done and redone 3 or 4 times. Unlike the first one, this came out better and better each time, so I guess that's a good thing.

Brian gets weirder and weirder as I draw him.

#1: Sketchy Beginnings

First comic wooooo

...and it's over before it began.

This is the beginning of a comic that I hope will be featured in The Observer. Whether or not that actually happens, I'll try to keep the comic updated on a regular basis, pending on school/my interest.

This must be the 3rd or 4th iteration of this particular strip, which was done and redone for several reasons. But at least it's here! (and the first panel looks like crap!)
