So i have a couple ideas for some comics i would like to start on the site, buut haven't had the time, but i def wanna get sooome kinda project going on here!
So i've created "My Day Thus Far", which will be a "conscious streaming" of what I'm feeling at the moment...so I will date the toon, put the current time aaand either put several phrases that I'm feelin' at the moment and/or weave it into a one-panel comic...these toons, like most of my work, will be done do or die, in pencil, pen, ink, whatever...hopefully i can get a chuckle outta you guys, one man's misery is another man's happiness..or something like that, haha.
My Day Thus Far #1!
One day I'd like to be able to work for Google and work on a banner that miilllions of people will see across the entire world..but 'til then, i can repost the ones i personally really dig ;)
This has to be one of my favorites so far, it was on Google yesterday..was a big Popeye fan growing up, even of the Popeye movie:
The style of Popeye was perfect for the kiddos i think and is def a cartoon i hope will not fade from anyone's memory anytime soon...and i actually really love spinach too, haha, thanks popeye!

"There's a man goin' around, taking names..and he decides who to free and whom to blame.......when the man comes around"
I've been listening to this great, slightly chilling Johnny Cash song "When the Man Comes Around" aaand I sketched this lil' sucker up...quick sharpe/fine point pen hatching and voila...
I had this picture of a Ripper meets Archangel meets Old Cowboy from West thing in my head aaand this is what came of that..so be good kiddies, or "the man" will find you. ;)
i'm diggin' where i'm goin' with coloring on photoshop...again, as most of my photoshop coloring trials are, this came out accidentally and i liked it so decided to keep it...tryin' to go in another direction, thouugh not quite sure where, though i'm diggin' where i'm heading :D

Heya ladies and germs, busy week as usual, hope everyone out there is having a great week and staying outta this cold! (well least down here its getting kinda chilly, at least for us South Texaners!)
So a friend of mine posted about not getting enough ketchup, how this restaurant (which will not be named) only gave him one packet of ketchup...ONE...
How many fries do you usually get in an order? First off, I'm pretty sure no one really counts them, but let's make a guestimate...lets say 20 fooor like a small order...20 fries to one packet of ketchup..considering that most restaurants use packet ketchup and not the small "wells" like say, Whataburger (BEST KETCHUP EVER..i swear they make it w/ crack or something it is so addicting), you'll be lucky to get one scoop of ketchup per fry...
Thats IF you dip once per fry that you have...thats not including double-dipping which, come on, you KNOW you're going to do when you don't have to share your sauce right? Even then...if its someone close to you, you'll double dip...and your friend might double dip...thats two people double dipping a extremely small, ever-decreasing amount of ketchup! The HORROR!
We Americans love our sauce...whether its bbq, hot mustard, ranch, ketchup, or even tartar sauce for those seafood lovers (ME), so when we don't have enough of it, its pretty frustrating...and seemingly, over the last few years, restaurants are giving out less and charging for what was considered the normal amount now considered "extra" sauce packets, cups, wells, etc...
I 'member, back in the day, I could get as many "wells" of hot mustard for my chicken nuggets at McDonald's as my chubby lil' heart desired and now I have to pay an added cost for the same amount of sauces...utter ridiculousness.
I understand that our economy is not in the best of shape, but this started BEFORE THAT.
Really, its the small things in life that keep us going, we are not asking for much...just give us 4 packets instead of 1.....6 instead of 2...
We Americans eat more food, therefore we need more sauce for that food...it is the American way...USA, USA, USA.
Thank you for your time. I'm going to go find something to eat. & break out the ketchup. ;).
