Your stuff has a Bakshi/Kricfalusi look to it. I like it!

If you truly want to live vicariously through others, then play Warcraft. Before you know it, years of your life will pass by and you will have no life at all!

I get the same effect making cartoons!

Too relatable! I can't even get caught up on my vids because i'm too busy doing my artwork.

I'm a big fan of the Funny Animal comics of the 40s, and i think you're doing a fine job of capturing and updating the appeal of those old comics.

So, damnit, i'm way behind on another subscription now.

Hello, -3-, thanks for subscribing and leaving a comment.

If you liked those funny animal comics from the 40's you should like Francis well enough. I add a little more neurosis to my comics, but they are in the same spirit.

If you're that busy working on your artwork, it must be worth my time to check out.

" I add a little more neurosis to my comics..."

That's kind of what i meant when i spoke of 'updating' - it's certainly a more neurotic world, eh?

(Apologies in advance for any damage taken while checking out T3C)

Well, thank you for the link. You have a great collection there. Such great drawings!

Sadly i'm not updating the archive any longer. Google announced they'd delete old blogs after a brief period of inactivity, so they wiped out any incentive for making a lasting database.

As you might guess when reading through, Ellis Chambers was a personal favourite. But there were a ton of talented folks doing those comics, and they did some great work.
And Chambers embraced the neurotic and deranged, too. All the more reason to love his work.
