The Modern School for Gifted Youth

Lately, one my default cartooning methods has been to squeeze an entire children's book into a single comic page. Instead of stretching an idea to 32 pages, I distill it to 8 panels. Due to space constraints, some couplets I write don't make the final cut. Like this highly personal rhyme:

If OCD is off the charts
We train them in the Dental Arts.


  1. I think you sir, should write poetry professionally.

  2. I love the symbol and mission statement of the school, very witty. Curious, what does the latin motto under the badge mean? I know that "Citius, Altius, Fortius" is the Olympic motto meaning faster, higher, stronger.

  3. owlinalarkworld: Thank you!
    M.C.: Citius, Altius, Cursus = Faster, Higher, Smarter. Since I don't know any Latin, I used google translate :)

  4. This is unspeakably awesome. You're a genius.

  5. Hello from Russia. You have a nice style.
