Two years ago this month, I began drawing a weekly comic strip for my outstanding local newspaper, the Kansas City Star. I called the strip "Delayed Karma" - this was an obscure fusion of a John Lennon song and my mother's maiden name, and by no means an attempt to sound "all metaphysical." I'm not going to attempt to repost all of the early strips I drew. Most are painful for me to look at. The text is incoherent, the characters' heads are poorly proportioned, and I can't read them without finding dozens of things I would do differently if forced to redraw them. But I still enjoy a handful of these comics, so I'm going to start posting one a week in addition to my new work. In doing so, I may save a few brave souls the trouble of wading through the Incidental Comics archives in search of sketchy sustenance, or I may just boost my creative ego. Either way, enjoy the new old drawings, at least until the decent ones run out.

hahahha definitely how i feel about using a college diploma!ReplyDelete
Even with the crappy economy, we still all decide to pursue a diploma.ReplyDelete
I love this. Passionately.ReplyDelete
And am looking forward to your old comics as well. :D
I hear you on the discomfort of approaching old artistic efforts. Recently I pulled out a novel I wrote nearly 10 years ago, and while there is some decent premise--buried very, very deep--the crap it's under it just simply horrifyingly bad.ReplyDelete
This is great! If only I could figure out where I stashed my diploma, I might be able to try my hand at one of these fine suggestions. Not much I can do around here with a BA in Art History. Art history, fart history.ReplyDelete
nice! this is trueReplyDelete
haha sad but true. can't wait to see your old stuff!ReplyDelete
The points that you make in your comics are among the pointiest.ReplyDelete
Book Florist: Thank you for the pointed compliment.
