Scattered


Well, once again I'm inspired to dabble in another side of art - webcomics.  Pamo has inspired me once again.  Visit her site if you have a chance.

This is a tryout.  I actually made it a bit too big to scan - so here's what the formatting looks like, snapped from my cell phone:


Every now and then, in between fine art works (at least I hope they're fine!) I may do a comic or two, and play with different styles, etc.  I have some ideas - this was, in my mind, the least funny of the lot (although hopefully still funny) so I figured I'd start here.  Hope you liked it!

I have another painting that needs an ever-so-minor touch-up first, that I'll post next.

  2. Dan- This is BRILLIANT!!!! I laughed so hard!!! I simply LOVELOVELOVE it!!!
    I got up this morning and there it was in my email. What a GREAT way to kick off the day. So funny and SO TRUE!!!
    I personally hope you continue with the comics because you have a real talent for it. We could do a comic challenge... pick a topic, then have dueling comics. Just a thought.
    Anyway- thank you for brightening my day! I suspect a LOT OF PEOPLE will laugh and love this too!
    Go Dan!!!
    (And thanks for the mention too. :-) )

    1. Pssst. Here's a secret. These days comics are quite interesting to me - interesting enough that I may make another blog for comics. I don[t know if I'll do it regularly, but at least then I'll have a forum to post. This blog isn't the place for it. This is for my paintings, etc. Dueling comics is a wonderful idea. We shall see...

      Thanks for the inspiration! And your enthusiasm!

    1. I am so very glad you were Very Worried about grandpa. In the first panel I tried to give the impression, conscious or unconscious, of a wheelchair. Thanks!

  5. My h has a saying "there is a little bit of truth in all kidding". I think there is a LOT of truth in this toon. I can relate to it! Glad to see you doing comics again...I love it!

    1. It's always good to have many ways to be creative, I think, then if one day one avenue feels stale, I can turn to another. Thanks!

  9. Excellent Dan… Pamo is a favorite cartoon artist of mine too… and it's good to see you still keep your hand in at it too. This one is funny and so true… the root of a good comic is a universally recognizable truth, told in a funny way.
