The One Where I’m Not Sure What I Was Trying To Say

This is a repurposed Committed cartoon. Committed’s core audience was working moms, so I spent a lot of time promoting the idea that dad’s are basically useless. That’s a polite way of saying I was sucking up to the moms. I don’t really believe all dad’s are useless or that all mom’s are saints, so I’m not really sure what I was trying to say with today’s cartoon.  If any moms or dads or golden retrievers out there were offended, I apologize.

I like this Committed cartoon I did from 2002.   The perspectives’ a little weird, but overall it’s not too badly drawn.  I like Liz with her mouth just open.  Less is more.

Is it possible to rip off yourself?

What Keeps Moms Awake at Night

Committed

A Committed from 2001 that I’ve completely forgotten about.  Nice drawing of Joe being startled awake.  You may have to click on this and read the larger version on comics.com.

Over the Hedge

Stuff that made me smile this morning:

1.  Email spam from John Cleese promoting his one man show UK tour dates.  He suggests I might want to make sure he’s still alive before buying tickets.

2. Reading that Steve Jobs’ demonstration of the new iPhoneG4 was interrupted when he couldn’t get a wi-fi signal because of all the live-tweeter/bloggers hogging bandwidth.

3. And this old Committed cartoon from 1997:

Snappin’ Synapses

Committed

Saw this in my email subscription from comics.com and thought it was funny.   I drew this 13 years ago.   I like the art a lot.  So many of my cartoons back then look labored, but this one looks fresh.   The wacky borders were an experiment for a year or so to distinguish the panel on the comics page.  The problem was that when it was shot down to the size of nano-nit, it just looked like a muddy mess.

?!@#$!! Funnies

Committed

This is a comic from the Committed panel I created and drew from 1994-2006.   It was never in more than 80 papers, but it did inspire a prime-time animated series for the WE cable network and CTV in Canada produced by Nelvana.  A TV series you never saw because it was pretty mediocre.   It’s a long story, I’ll blog about one day.  

This particular comic is from 1999 which for some reason was a brief miraculous period where I could draw.
