My Bubble Fox Guest Comic

Jon Esparza asked me to do a Bubble Fox guest comic for him, which you can find here:

I had a lot of fun drawing this, and I just had to make my cartoon self and Storm meet Bubble Fox!

Great Expectations

So what would Storm really do if he had a lot of money to spend? (let's just assume he could grasp the concept of money) He would probably not buy a gigantic litter box... Food maybe? I don't know, he doesn't seem particularly interested in food, as long as it's there, he takes a few bites and leaves it for later. And if he feels it's time to be fed, he gently headnudges me in the direction of his dining corner. Toys? No, he has enough of those, I am sure he would agree with me on that. Perhaps a large garden (we don't have that) with lots of birds (to watch, I hope) and flies (to hunt). And grass to eat. I would appreciate that too, by the way, though I probably wouldn't join him with the grass eating...

Redundant - again!

As you may notice, this week's comic is a bit more space-efficient than usual. One strip seemed a better fitting size for this idea, and stretching it to cover 2 strips would not have made it better. 

I find deciding what goes in which panel the hardest part of making a comic. It needs to build towards the gag, which is in the final panel (you did notice that, right? If not, I am failing badly!), but you don't want the reader to see the joke coming from a mile away, yet you have to be sure it's clear what the joke is! I need to watch the amount of text I use, since I have a tendency of going on and on about something, yet I do want the text to be a substantial part of the story, because I like text.

It's hard work. Really.
So I am sure you can see how unfair it is that my job was stolen by a cat. My cat. 

And yes, I am perfectly capable of distinguishing reality from fiction, why are you even asking that?
