There are tons of cartoon and comics blogs by comics and cartoon professionals. Here's one by an electronic technician for the USPS.

merry christmas

I'm going to be working today even if the cat isn't.

Hoping to get up to the farm and see Mom and my sister's family tomorrow.

off a cliff.....

I really should update this blog more often. Maybe after Christmas, when I get more caught up.

I was reading a newspaper article about a market for clean humor. Apparently too much contrived edginess and profanity his wearing out its shock value and welcome.

Otherwise, I'm kind of proud of the Captain Saucer revival that I'm working on. It has no profanity, no real nudity, any sex is implied and off panel, but still comes off as off color as an old Underground Comic.

Looks like I'm officially skunked on that Merkur XR4Ti engine donor car for Wee Beastie. Motor parts are missing, the head and exhaust manifold are cracked, the turbo doesn't turn, and when I finally got the seller on the phone they hung up.

Here's a sketch of a planned more finished drawing for Tube Punk. A grown up take on grade-school characters, Clan the Dragon Man and Mister Fan, with a monster and a hot rod thrown in for good measure.

It's amazing about how hot rods and monsters go together in cartoons...

Here's a "hybrid" that I drew on my birthday. Although, it kind of has a Halloween feel to it. Maybe Wing can dress up like Fang in some Halloween issue of the Captain Saucer Revival as sort of a in-joke.

Feeling rough. A hectic night at work plus some manditory overtime. Forcing myself to do a bunch of scanning so at least I can have some token productivity before work.

The other night I was asked about how much I knew about ATUs. I knew so little that this is what popped in my head.

Turned 46 the two nights ago. Mainly just another work night during a cold spell. Looking forward to after New Years when I should be buying a house and maybe even getting moved to day shift.

Still scanning in '70s and '80s stuff for Tube Punk. Going through a file drawer that's a big lode of stuff. Even found my rare "Bicentennial Summer Super Special". Starting to rough-in the paste-up for early chapters. Aiming for a release around next Christmas. Also trying to whip up some "girl and car" fan-service.

Was able to exchange those speakers at Wally World even if I didn't have the box or receipt.
