1. This one is in the format of a Sunday strip, yet if
said newspaper printed this one in colour, the joke wouldn't work.
Othterwise, I really liked this one.
1. I generally can't draw more than three panels in one
half page, but this four panel one was pretty well done by my standards.
It feels neat and tidy whenever I look at it.
2. I really love this format. I mean I REALLY love
this format. all you need is a piece of advice that would normally be
pretty good advice, and have Bobby find a loophole. Plus, since these are
all single paned punch lines, I get to work on my background drawing
skills. Look at the geometry present in that painting! It almost
makes up for those really lazy stairs.
1. I am mostly expressing my discontent with some
authors. Their books are mostly well written and interesting throughout
the story, but the ending always seems unfulfilling and rushed, even if its the
final book in a series. I believe I was thinking about James Dashner's The
Maze Runner series. Great series, but the third and final book's
ending was not very well written in my opinion. The prequel The Kill
Order made up for it though.
2. Well this one requires a bit of explanation. I
hate how a lot of shows feature gay people as characters just for the sake of
saying they have a gay character. I am supportive of gay marriage, but I
find most TV shows are trying too hard, and the gay characters always come off
as one dimensional, as if being gay is the only notable feature about
them. This is my parody of those characters.
1. If you look closely in the last strip, Billy was
originally a pineapple. I just drew a pineapple because they are easy to
draw, but then I though of this joke, and how awesome it would be to actually
have a gay banana as a character. I rather like Billy, he is a teased
cahracter in the kitchen, and Bobby understands that. My dad told one of
his coworkers I was writing a comic about a Broccoli who hates fruit, and his
coworker though my dad meant gay people. This is sort of my response to
that, that Bobby is fine with gay people, and is willing to make a truce with
certain fruits when they are being harassed by someone other than Bobby.
2. And here is how I show I'm quite clever. I
directly mention my discontent with gay characters, and try to develop a
character who can be gay and have other interesting qualities. Then I
decided that I had an even better idea for at least 6 strips, so the plan
1. I like to keep concepts that I return to in stock, so
if I don't have a strong joke already on my mind, I can work out a joke from a
template. This one is pretty good in m opinion, I think I did a pretty
good job on it.
1. Here is my stroke of genius. I actually know
quite a lot about Quantum Mechanics (basically what goes on below the atomic
level), and know how most concepts work. Bobby's reaction to Billy
mentioning his interest in Quantum physics pretty much sums up my friends'
reactions to me trying to explain to them what Planck's constant is. So basically,
I decided to be the first cartoonist to ever create a banana who knows quite a
bit about quantum physics, who also happens to be gay. All of the concepts
that I mention are actually real inventions and theories, but Bobby always turns
them into a gay joke. I have some better ideas for this template, but I
needed to start this one off with one people might actually get. On
another note, that microscope doesn't really look at all like a scanning
tunneling microscope, which would have a big component attached to it to
actually process the image.
