Posted from my phone, from a guest house in Galveston, Texas. Tomorrow, we set sail on the Disney Wonder cruise liner, for seven nights, stopping in Falmouth, Grand Cayman and Cozumel.
Ugh, caricature is hard. And then to try to caricature in somebody else’s style? And have them make an uncharacteristic cartoony wild take? I looked at photos of Lovecraft, caricatures of him by others, caricatures of celebrities by the Animaniacs animators… Ugh.
I was tossing a few print ideas around in my head, and I thought of the Warner siblings, and how they would, from episode to episode, harass various figures from history and mythology. Who could I have them pester…? Ooh! H.P. Lovecraft, and Dot could do her “wanna see my pet?” gag!
So that’s the second new print with betentacled horrors. These and more on sale at Edmonton Expo this weekend!
The end. This was basically done by Monday night. Then I realised I hadn’t drawn the lawyers. So I sat on releasing it, with the hope that I could make some small adjustments to panel 3 and squeeze them in. But between work and maybe starting to get sick, it proved to be a bigger job than that, and in the end, fuck it.
We have one more comic to wrap up this story. Week after that there should be a something, and then probably a nothing. Cuz of going to Edmonton Expo, and then going to sail around the Caribbean for a week.
The aforementioned Halloween. I would trust you to remember it better if it hadn’t taken a month to reach the callback.
Got my booth number for Edmonton Expo: Artist Alley E21. That’s September 28-29 at the Northlands Expo Centre. Ron Perlman’s gonna be there. At the show that is, not the EN booth. Although you never know; I mean Sylvester McCoy came by our booth at Calgary.
Well. This one kicked my butt. Sorry about that. The next one should be a piece of piss though.
