[Re]search[er]


So I'm working, in one form or another, on multiple pieces right now and as a consequence I've decided this blog won't be updated once a week from now now. It'll be updated whenever I can (most likely multiple times a week with smaller posts like this.) Because I was doing research for an upcoming story in an upcoming (end of the year upcoming) comic I didn't finish "Man Overboard" or "In Defense. . ." Both are basically ninety percent done but. . .

Since I don't have them to post, like I said I would, here's a scan of a sketch that's kinda research for one of the upcoming stories.

And yes, I'm aware his head is too small.

In Defense. . .


So, I don't know how to rotate a pic. and. . . yeah, just tilt your head to the right or your monitor to the left.

This is what will be written on the piece "In Defense of the Serial Comma; Or, A Good Excuse to Practice Lettering". I may actually use this lettering itself (just cut it out and tap it to another piece of paper) even though it breaks one of my lettering rules twice (yes, I have rules, as any cartoonist should) on the final piece. I don't like when text from one line touches text from another line. (Note: the word "not" touches the 'Y' in "qualify" and later on in the same sentence on the same line the 'I' in "believe" touches the 'Y' in "may").

I'm thinking next Wednesday I'll put up the final versions of this piece and "Man Overboard".

Until then. . .
