Today's Cul de Sac












When I drew this one I fussed with the background too much, putting in all this crosshatching and textured greys and all that mess. In a sudden fit of disgust and lucidity I blotted it all out with black ink. Nice, tasteful, simple black ink. Dr. Ph. Martin's Hi-Carb Black Ink to be specific.

There, that's my tale of drama, conflict and resolution for today.

I simply (and quite frankly) love this one.

Thanks for being so damn good, Richard.

Oh, I forgot to mention it was a certain Mr. Bernier who got me using the ink, it's a lot of fun to use with bamboo skewers.

And it worked! Looks awesome.

I've done the same thing a hundred times, but by the time I decide to fill it up with solid blacks, it's always too late and I've ruined it.

That's wonderful -- I love it. "I can't sleep with all this tension." That's perfect. Your strip is amazing. I have to get your collections. Thank you for battling all those deadlines to give people like me the pleasure of that one moment of recognition.
