Yeah, yeah.. it’s pretty stupid, and horrible. But I have to admit… it made me chuckle.
As far as why… Well I’ve been meaning to put up a couple strips for a while. And have been trying to network, collaborate with a couple of artists, but I’ll let you in on a secret, artists aren’t really the most reliable bunch for collaborating or networking with… at least the ones I’ve been dealing with.
So rather than wait on people to grow up, I decided to just ‘what the heck’ it, and just go ahead and create and post something that would make me laugh.
Hence this very brief, very juvenile ‘cut and paste’ cartoon courtesy of one of the free cartoon generators out there, The art is crude, but the insane story and words and madness is all me. Hope you enjoyed it. If you do, leave a comment and some likes!
It’s a work in progress experiment, that will improve if you guys will stick in there with me. Thanks!!
I generally have neither time nor interest to follow webcomics.
I mean seriously, my blog is eclectic enough without adding webcomics to the mix, but hey, my core impetus for this blog is to bring you, in nearly real time, the things that are interesting me. And today that means… web-comics.
So this first BWOTD selection goes to:
ANTS by Julian Lytle.
I’ve heard Julian Lytle on various podcasts (thanks CGS) and am just, at the time of this posting, getting around to reading his webcomic. Let me start by saying, at risk of losing any potential cool-card, I seldom know what Julian Lytle is talking about when I hear him on podcasts, and some of his cartoons are similarly… frantic to the point of in-discernibility for me.
And no doubt I’m way too square for his hip dialog, However, my out of touchness aside, for the most part I find his cartoons work extremely well, and the best (the Video Music Awards, The Tiger Infidelity cartoon, and the great Eggos war!) are rich and funny and insightful. Go over and see the above selected cartoon at full size here, and if you like what you see then start at the beginning and read them all (I’ve finished all of 2009 so far, I’m at the cliffhanger of the Asgard War. ).
