Another couple of the 4-panel funnies. The first one underwent some pretty extensive drawing changes... originally it was a very sparely drawn comic. I decided to beef it up with some more physical cartoonininess, though. The second one I thought of while waiting for a bus at Logan Airport. I had the idea for the words to the last panel and I was shooting through ideas for other panels when I came up with the gag. I forget why I chose a turtle, exactly, but I do remember that I didn't have enough money for the bus (or rather, I had a wrong, but cheaper, ticket, and no additional money). The driver let it slide, though.

"On My Way" was a fun Funny to do. Came up with the initial bit, worked on how many different ways I could wring it, and then at the end finally turned the joke in against itself for a punchline. It was fun to draw, too, because the narrative and the images are pretty separated until they converge at the punchline of each verse. It's pretty long, but these are the first three pages to give you a good gist of the thing...

This one is a little sedate, I admit. Here, no one is really talking... are they not really thinking, either? Feeling? In the Summer-Autumn seasonal transition the Rooster is the flip side of art-as-communication, playing with what's behind the door and around the corner; outside the window, under the water and behind the button eyes.
