Definitely the last one before the new year, but I'll be back into it pretty sharply after that. I need a few days off.
Yep - that's still that trilobite thing on his head and we're seeing the start of a multi-part, epic story arc. It's going somewhere but I really wish someone would tell me where that is.

I'll apologise now to anyone trying to read this off their computer screen - it'll probably get uncomfortable before you get all the way around. Probably a good idea to print it out. Print out a hundred copies. Stick them everywhere.

I've always had this irritation with people who shake your hand like it's some great struggle for dominance, coming in with their palm down and forcing you into a submissive posture. I get an overwhelming urge to either tell them I'm just being friendly, and not looking for a big primate pissing contest, or just to kick them in the nuts. Neither of these things happen of course - the former would probably get me the shit beaten out of me for being a smartarse and the latter because I haven't been in a fight since 6th grade so I'd probably miss their nuts and land flat on my back ready for the bloody pummelling that would surely come. This is my tiny revenge. Oh, and the time I reflexively twisted back and the guy's elbow made this really loud "crack". I felt guilty and oh-so-manly in equal measure. Which means I'm just a primate too, I suppose.
I really like doing these little things where I play with the structure of the page. I used to make Airfix planes when I was a little kid and was fascinated by the plastic frames that all the bits would hang on. I could barely bring myself to throw them away.

My wife is always reminding me that I have this hideous tendency to take a joke one step too far. She cited this as an example. Quite justifiably, I suppose.
But it was the guy with the tampon in his hand. Nothing to do with me.
And, yes, I've been reading a lot of Krazy Kat lately.

I'm really not sure who or what the little thing with the wheels and the one big eye is but he seems to have skills and abilities beyond what you would expect. In direct opposition to the guy with the big nose.

I think tarot (and most forms of divination) are just fascinating, although I tend to be really crap at them. All those weird little pictures and their pliable meanings. The horny trucker came from a disturbing (but really funny) hitchhiking story a friend once told me. He opted to walk instead.
I'd still love to see this tarot deck though.

These were pretty much the first pages I ever drew - at least the first that I wasn't embarrassed to show anyone. The format changes a bit after these; initially I was building the page around the golden ratio,for no better reason than it looks nice. After doing a couple I decided they should be more like American comic book format. God knows but I'll probably change my mind again.
