Long Weekend

Here're some pictures of the damage from all over town, courtesy of my fearless wife, Rachelle, and her intrepid friend, Shannon:

Lotsa trees down:

Check out this camper:

More trees

And flooding too , WHEEEE!

This scary scene was on my way to work.

These kind of things were all over town. Pretty scary. We can consider ourselves pretty lucky that we got through all of this relatively unscathed.

Got a lot on my mind and I'm tired is all

Hey, though...

If you haven't yet, then check out Joe Zabel's mammoth interview with Scott McCloud over at the Webcomics Examiner. It's a wide ranging interview that covers most of Scott's career including ZOT, Understanding/Reinventing Comics, and the forthcoming Making Comics. Joe did a great job with a big interview here.

McCloud's actual presence in webcomics circles has waned in the past few years but his influence is still strong (in my own comics, for a small example).

Good reads...

Sophie's Famous!!! (parts one and two)

Yes it's true. Third row down, first picture.

Part Two:
Sophie and her friend Lauren (and Lauren's mom, our friend Shannon) are in todays Daily Record.

(Rachelle made me black out Shannon's last name to stave off all you internet stalkers)

Fun fact: Sophie and Lauren share a birthday and will both be one year old in a little over a week! Wheee-Haw!!

Happy Father's day, dad. And all you other dads too.

Pan-Global Elves*?

Lookit Me!!! I'm just like Jimmy Kolchaka! WOO-HOOO!

And speaking of elves, you know who hates 'em? William G's Bang Barstal, that's who! That's a joke that all of the guest artists he's lined up for filler have been running into the ground over there. Well, not to be outdone in the banal and insipidly unoriginal gag department, yours truly has taken up the cause with his own subtly unfunny Bang Barstal Guest Strip (note: it's front-paged for Wednesday only. If you're reading this on Thursday or later click here and scroll to the bottom.) Check it out, if you dare.

*- explanation on the heading today, if you're not in "the know":

This strip is done in the style of James Kochalka's popular sketchbook-diary American Elf.
William G's Bang Barstal goes out hunting elves in his first installment, Pointy Eared Bastards (currently being reserialized on Graphic Smash) and my guest strip makes reference to that. So there's the "elf" connection.

And William G is from Canada and lives in South Korea.
American Elf... Canada... South Korea...

Thus the "Pan-Global."

I'm all full of bad jokes today...

Yet, I still cannot bring you here.

Quick study of what will be a new comic, eventually. The living room is just a stand in, I think, and I've got some other ideas for expanding the concept. But the basics are all there.

Oh, did I tell you we have a digital camera now?

This place is really starting to suck.

Do You Remember Rock N' Roll Radio?

So I drew and scanned this yesterday but stupid Blogger was down and I couldn't post it. I drew another one today that kind of builds off of this one. I posted that before this one so with any luck you'll read this first and scroll down for the rest. If not then sorry. Just pretend that you read them in order in the first place. Come on it's not so hard...

stupid Blogger...
