CARtoons #12 Out Now! #13 in FEB! n' Resolutions!

Journal Entry: Thu Jan 4, 2018, 10:18 AM
And this year I resolve to work on this project I was supposed to work on this past year.

I've been looking at editing the Elsewhere pages I've done in hopes of making a good book at it. I also hope to get back to doing some new Elsewhere comics soon.

The new series I'm drawing Barrel of Grease Monkeys for CARtoons Magazine has been really eating into my creative time. Here I am telling you about issue 12 and 13 and I've already sent a script in for issue 14 in April. Look here or at if you want to see some.

This year I will also try to be better about updating. Between being busy and not being able to share some of my work I've been posting less.

Have a great new year.

F.Y.I. Elsewhere got a review!…

  • Listening to: Oldies Car themed music
  • Reading: CARtoons Magazine
  • Drinking: Too Much Caffeine

OK true believers, What Elsewhere strips do you like the most? The everyday live stuff or the big adventure comics? Looking at old strips and am amazed at how good they were at doing nothing (But being funny at the same time). 

2 deviants said Keep trying do do a mix of adventure and regular life.
