Old Strip Until Something Better Comes Along


This is from the Post Mag of a few years ago. I redid it for syndication too, but the watercolor version's prettier. It's poignant, I guess. But I'd really like to know what the cat joke is.

I've just found your work via Drawn! and I fell in love with your art. Great drawings, great humor!

Congrats! You can be proud of yourself! :)

I'm just another guy who's found your blog through drawn.
Great strip! And oh so true! Sad but true. But I don't think the medium is really going to die, maybe something worse is going to happen: elitarism!

Oh, say it ain't so (about comics, not the cat). I remember this one; it's one of my faves.

Thanks. The Drawn piece was a real nice surprise, and I'm glad you all followed the link here!

No, I don't think comic strips are a dying art form, at least jeez I hope not, 'cause there goes my job. It may be a slightly moribund art form, but nothing incurable. Knock on wood.

This is one of my all-time favorites and it should be made up as a Thompson Toons Inc. poster or print and I would Paypal you a nice 2 figure sum for it, my friend!

Another great one. You continue to make me laugh, and that's a rarity in the funny pages these days for me.

Wow...it's like you were sitting in on my bedtime storytime with the kids. My three-year-old does exactly that!
