talk about bad timing...

okay, so i got a call a few weeks ago from an editor i worked with years ago offering me a weekly strip in the paper he was now working for... sounds like fun, a crazy premise, why not? over the weekend i finally get to a point where i'm comfortable with the ideas i've got for the first strip and i figure i'll start working on it monday after i email him about the dimensions for the strip... and then he tells me.


the weekly world news is ceasing publication. d'oh. so, sadly no "alien baby" strips from me in "the paper". coulda been fun... oh well.

anywhoo, hope everybody has a great time out in san diego (sadly, i'm not heading out this year)... here's another commission...

Man, that's a bummer. Hopefully their plans to go web-only work out well for them and they ask you to revisit this in the future. Sure, that might happen...

Man, that is one pretty White Queen Mr. Rousseau.


Too bad about WWN shuting down, I was going to start getting it for your strip. Hard to believe they shut down knowing THAT windfall was on its way.

Say, could you check with your editor friend and see what happened to the World's Fattest Cat. He was one of my co-workers favorite WWN features.

NOT FAIR!

So many opportunities for strangeness.
