    I invite you to come along!!!
    Thank you for your patience, and thanks for reading!!!
    See you on the other side!

    Today's strip: Clue

    In a few days, Chippy and Loopus will be moving to a TypePad blog. Until then, new episodes will continue to appear here. I'll let you know when the time comes.

    Suday Episode: Problem?

    Hey! It worked!!!
    I'm still moving. I'll post the link when I do!
    Thanks everybody for hanging in there!

    It's Sunday Morning, still No Strip!!! Here is why:

    I am so sorry and incredibly frustrated, but I regret to inform you all that I am still unable to post today's strip. I have tried multiple times but the system still won't allow me to post an image. Well, this is the last straw. I promised myself that if Blogger's technical difficuties ever prevented me from making my self-imposed deadline, then I would find another platform.
    So, hopfully, with a little e-mail assistance from Paul and Knife, I can make the transition withing the next couple of days.
    Sorry! I'll get the strip up when I can!
    Thanks for reading and thanks for your patience!

    Technical Difficulties!!

    Well, due to Blogger problems, I am unable to post ann image. I will try again later, or possibly in the morning. Please check back.
    Hey Knife, how happy are you over at WordPress?

    Today's Strip: Visitor

    You can thank my wife for this. When I drew the strip with the Pink unicorn, she said that she wanted to see him become involved in the action somehow, and then spun out this wild idea as to how it could happen. She's a real gem, my Sara is.

    Other Stuff:
    Those of you who don't have Sirius are really missing out. The Stern show gets better everyday. Today they re-ran a phoney phone call that Richard Christie made using sound clips from Blue Iris, an 80 something year-old porn star. The victim was a southern woman and the results were too funny to describe. I laughed so hard my jaw hurt and my ribs were sore. IFor those of you unfamiliar with Howard, if you enjoy this strip, you will like Howard Stern.

    In other news, Friend Knife and Onions finally got fed up with all the problems Blogger has been having lately and moved to a Word Press Blog. He is now here:

    I'll be updating his link as soon as possible.
    Thanks for reading!

    Today's Strip: Pretty Please?

    Okay, I admit it. Today's strip is not exactly 2"x8". I added about an inch on the end because I needed that panel where Chippy glares at Andy. Never underestimate the importance of the "silent" panel.
    Now, an open statement to the good people who make Flash: Do you hate artists? What is the matter with you? Why can't you make a program that is as easy to use as Photoshop? What possessed you to make the brush tool absolutely useless? Do you hate cartoonists THAT much?
    End statement.

    Today's Strip: Too Easy

    I've been having a lot of fun the past few days drawing revamped versions of Superman. You can see the results on my other blog:
  • Storyboredom
  • .

    I was inspired to do this by a very cool drawing that Louie Del Carmen posted on his blog:

    Fun stuff. I know, I'm a huge nerd. At least I'm married.
