Today's Cul de Sac, March 14 to 20, 2011
I look forward to drawing Andre playing soccer.
This keeps happening to Petey, like maybe twice a year.
Leaving unfinished jokes lying around means you can bring them back again and pretend you've accomplished an actual punchline.
And I keep drawing this somewhat sinister playground.
I'd like to make the playground an actual character. Here it looks a bit like Howl's Moving Castle, which if you haven't seen you should.
Take that, singing cartoon animals.
This is not too different from the way I work sometimes. When stuck for an idea I've often contemplated cutting up old strips, strewing them all over the floor and mixing & matching them until they seem to make sense. Or I'll just bring back the tiny missing clown.
