Today’s strip is late because I’ve been working on a bunch of stuff, work related, career related, and life related, and ran out of time to get the strip uploaded. The Surface Pro should help with time crunches, but this week, time was extra crunchy.
Speaking of the Surface Pro, I did all the pencils, and 98% of the inks for this strip on the Surface. I think I’m getting the hang of the smaller screen. I should probably try sketching on it to get used to it, but I just tend to sketch on whatever paper I have handy.
Regarding today’s strip, I am re-introducing a character from the old C&L today in an all new way, and that is Carl. Carl is a family man, and an old friend of Chippy and Loopus. In the new strip, he’ll have a slightly different role. You will see as it develops. I always liked Carl. Carl is the closest this strip has to a normal guy. He’d be the star of the strip in an alternate reality. As a matter of fact, I toyed with the idea of starting a strip that stars Carl and his family, but I thought that it would be too..typical. It would be “For Better or Worse” with ducks. That’s not exactly ground-breaking.
In other news, I’ve been doing too many all-nighters again. I’ll try to stop. I promise. Of course I say this as the sun comes up after a long night in front of the Cintiq, MadMen streaming on Netflix as I work.
Have a nice tuesday, people!
