! - page twenty-six through twenty-eight

I could not resist re-drawing that last page any longer. It's still kinda meh, but better. The next two pages were more difficult to draw than it seems they should be. Pretty happy with how they turned out, though.

I've been kind of obsessing over the last track on Deerhoof's The Runners Four album this week.

Only so-so sound on this live video via YouTube:

Better sound here on a band High Schoolers(!) from Sweden doing their cover:

Tomorrow is my Sophie's third birthday. Happy birthday Sophie!!!

Not feeling all too inspired lately.
I'm not loving this page but it is what is is, I guess. I will be redrawing the stuff I don't like for the final version anyway...

Hmm... Friday.
A crappy end for a crappy week.

Feeling crappy.

Over the weekend I had the pleasure of attending the opening for my friend Jeff's first solo gallery show. Chris and I braved a small monsoon* - the course of which seemed to attach itself right to our route - to get there. Jeff seems to have done very well for himself and I was happy to attend, though the violent buzzing of the Cleveland Arts scene was somewhat intimidating to a small-town chap like myself.
If you're in the area, his paintings will be up until the 28th. Go down there and buy one, whydon'tcha?

A couple things to measure this little comic strip up to:
The record holder for the world's longest continuous drawing. 1,350 feet, but not quite a comic. Wish there were better photos, but it appears that it might be done on one long sheet of paper too.
(Link from Steve)

And Elvis Road. Only twenty four feet, but extremely dense drawing. And it's a comic!
(from Troy)

! measures in at just about seventeen feet (so far) and is also dense, but in a different way.

Hey! Two pages in the same week! When was the last time that happened?

Happy MoCCA, to everybody who is so inclined. On the off chance you're there and you're still reading this - then don't forget.

I've got a lot of cleaning up to do before this whole thing is finished. I'm looking at printing this in traditional pamphlet format - probably - as well as on the web. But anyone got any ideas on how I do a continuous version in print?
I have not looked into any options at all, but man would it be cool to print it that way! So far this thing is a little over 15 feet long at it's original size (and it's not over yet).
