New Underworld Strip. Creep Rat.

Is it weird? I’ve always loved freckles. I had ‘em as a kid. Still have ‘em on my shoulders. I like the word. Freckles. It’s fun to say. But mostly I liked girls with freckles. A few years ago I was trying to explain it to a friend when I said that I liked that they looked like a leopard. Of course I got a weird look. And of course you don’t have to have freckles to be attractive or interesting looking. You could have stripes. Now I’m disappointed that people don’t have stripes. I wanted to make the last panel pretty. I’ve been looking at Krazy Kat again.

Kazazzic Park

Pouring over the Taschen book, PALEO ART (a collection of dinosaur paintings and prehistoric scenes) I got inspired by the early dinosaur art where the artists did not have much scientific information to draw from. So they just made stuff up (like lizard men, etc.). I decided to make a prehistoric diorama of my own using the cartoon creatures from my imagination. And here it is: KAZAZZIC PARK. One fun thing that happens whenever I push my design is that I often find new characters that then get up and walk onto future Underworld strips.

Flying

This one is about dreaming. Whenever I dream that I’m flying, I often become aware that I’m in a dream (Lucid Dreaming) and suddenly I’m awake. I designed the second panel so that the tree seems to “lift” or “boost” the bird higher up in the panel. In panel three I’ve got the bird almost as high as it can go so that the sudden short drop in panel four sets up fall back down to Earth in panel five. Using an extra long word balloon stem also helps to create the illusion that the bird fell from high up.

Underworld School House

Well, it’s no mystery that I love wise-ass little children, Especially if they are dumb and funny. I was a bad student with poor reading and studying skills. During one vocabulary test I didn’t know the definition of any of the words. So, I just wrote funny definitions. I made it all up. I figured the teacher just had to pass me for being funny and creative. No dice. I got and F. But the teacher did write “very funny” on top of my paper. No studying and being funny finally paid off when I became a cartoonist. So, my advice is follow your heart and fuck school!
