Holy Canuck!: I’ve always thought Canadian ballet should have a certain… savoir faire.
This too shall pass: The english language is a funny animal - I’ve always enjoying playing with it.
Rules of play: Don’t these guys know there can only be one batter in the box at one time?
Too bad, so sad: I got the idea for this one after an encounter with a grumpy bartender. Doesn’t he know the rules?
Drive In vs. Drive Thru: Sitting in a car watching a movie. How great is that… somebody should do this.
Hmmm… that’s about how it was: Back in the days when you had to go to an arcade to play a game - and put a quarter in it. Lots of quarters.
Head shot: Yeah, I’ve been acused of this. But I got better and I still have all my hair.
Class dismissed: What kid hasn’t done this. I know I did. This was one of my first “strip” style cartoons.
Computer Chips: This was a strip cartoon I created back in college in 1983. to celebrate high tech. It had a short run in the college newspaper. This first one was somewhat cynicle. It was the 1980’s.
Computer Chips: A high tech cartoon: The second incarnation of the strip introduced its main character - Robert Talby - named after a crew member of the space ship Dark Star, from the movie of the same name. I model his looks after my own.
Introducing Steve: Who remembers when floppy disks were really floppy and about 8 inches across? Oh, and this is when I first introduced Steve. Based on a friend on mine, at the time - no relation to Mr. Jobs.
Lets get down: It was never really clear what Robert did for a living - he just worked on a computer, in an office.
That guy: We all know him, the guy in the office who photocopied his hand, his face, his ass… well, maybe I never did my ass.
Trouble: I got a bit of flack for this one from my college instructors. The student newspaper ran this cartoon the same week as our mid-term portfolio presentations. Oops. Lucy, you got some ’splainin’ to do.
That damned Murphy: This seems to be how my life works. Power chords, the hose tangling and getting caught up on stuff. I swear, if my life depending on a rope snagging on something as I fell off a cliff - I bet it would spool out beautifully. Just to piss me off. I was particularly pleased with the long shot in frame 3.
Ahhh… fall down and go boom: A good friend of mine was in the Canadian Military around this time. I guess that’s why I did this one.
Fiction being more interesting that fact: I’m pretty sure humans can’t go into black holes, and if they could, what would they do there?
Thanks Captain Obvious: Maybe I’m wrong - wouldn't be the first time - but it strikes me that an massive emergency situation would make itself obvious.
Be careful, the machines could take over: Who hasn’t wanted to kick the shit out of a vending machine for stealing your money. It’s just rude of them to do that.
