Life In Oak-Town

Thursday, March 30th, 2006

The reason superheroes always have double identities is because most cartoonists have double identities. They are people that spend years in thankless day jobs, slaving over their drawings late at night hoping to someday carve out a living for themselves. But to keep that roof over their head so their paper doesn’t get all soggy, they have to keep showing up at the Daily Planet.

Anybody checking out the sweet iMac on my desk.. yeah it is nice. But hasn’t been working too nice lately. I’m hoping I can resolve these problems very soon, because I’m having trouble taking time on a project I’m afraid is going to be lost.

In other news, Snoopy lives next door to me:

But the real pimp of the neighborhood is our own Bobby Llello a.k.a. Kitty Capone

Fixed the Garfield Link

Wednesday, March 15th, 2006

Man I really was planning on showing off some of my new comics after the DSL got fixed in my apartment. And I had some short stories I was working on, some funny photographs of stuff around my apartment… and then my computer broke.

Apparently the iMac I just bought had some kind of manufacturing defect in it that was making the capacitors on my motherboard blow up. Sweet. So that’s coming back to me in 10-14 days.

So that has ground the computer portion of my comics production to a screeching halt. Luckily, I never bought a tablet and still make my comics the old-fashioned way. I resolve today I will never switch to entirely computer-generated comics. My pens will never blow a capacitor.

Meanwhile, enjoy this site that has taken all the thought-baloons out of Garfield. The result? Jon is a poor, lonely man who takes all his anger and psychosis on his poor, confused cat.
