Half-formed cartoon ideas, previously doomed to languish forever in my sketchbook, are now being employed by the University News. I'm using a brush pen for a looser line and more efficient process, but the strips still resemble "Delayed Karma." Hopefully, they'll grow up to be more than that strip's underachieving slacker brother.

I'm putting together a new mini-comic/zine/rehash of sixteen "Delayed Karma" strips from the KC Star and two color strips that appeared on the Wayward Blog. This is a highly technical process involving clandestine free printing at the dental school and explaining to Kayla why I bought a $30 stapler. The end result will be collecting dust on the shelves of select KC-area comic shops for the better part of a decade, at which point the owners will toss them out, the store will "lose them in the move," or a family member will buy the last one out of sympathy.
In other news, I'm starting a new weekly comic for UMKC's University News. Naming a new strip is always a challenge. At this point, it will be called "Great cartoon ideas I had but could only think of three panels instead of six." Yeah, that has a nice ring to it.
