This is the second of a set of comics I drew for Red Lemon Club, a site with articles and resources for creative professionals started by illustrator Alex Mathers. The secret to success in any creative field includes a cape, a Holden Caulfied hat, and a small herd of trained elephants.
The last point really is important. Just doing good work is not enough.ReplyDelete
I have a question about those men with fez in small cars (planes) in the last panel: This seems to be some US custom, I saw similar references in other contexts. What is it about those? Is there some background or is it just a custom?
Hauke: the guys in the small cars and fezzes are Shriners, it's a branch of the Masonic order that does public philanthropy (Shriners fund a childrens' hospital network for example). They are a staple of US parades, and usually throw candy out as they zip by in the little cars.ReplyDelete
Thanks Anonymous, perfect description of the Shriners! They were part of every small-town Midwest parade I attended as a child.ReplyDelete
Thanks for the explanation.ReplyDelete
And, while I am at it: Thanks for the great graphics!
i came across this site when i was aimlessly wandering the internet, because i don't have a facebook account now, and , yeah, as a teenager, it is kinda necessary to be on it. well. not really. in retrospect. but the holidays just seem to fly by.... i just wanted to say that your comics are amazing. words can't say just how much.
