A lot of people have been linking to this site unbeknownst to me. I'd like to thank those people. I'd also like to let you all know that I am currently exploring the possibility of animating a few of these strips in Flash. That is, as soon as I learn the program. If anyone would like to help, let me know via e-mail. Thanks!

I spent the day painting my shed and listening to comedy albums on my Ipod nano. I have to recommend Patton Oswalt's album and Dave Attel's Skanks for the memories. If you thought Monkey jizz was funny, wait'll you hear Attel's bit on egg nog.

Note: This post was edited at 12:13. I originally posted the strip at 11:00, then went to look at it at 12:06 to discover that it looked terrible and much of the dialogue was unintelligible. It turns out that after I cleaned up the dialogue in Photoshop (which I do often) I saved the layers wrong, causing the replaced dialogue to be visible as well as the new. I'm tired, what can I say. I was painting my new garden shed all day. (See Storyboredom for full story.) Sorry, and thank you for your Patience. (That would be you, Knife and Onions.)

A few more things to plug:
-Skribbl reminded me that the Sony PSP has to be one of the best things to come out in a long time. My favorite game so far is "Twisted Metal".
-Dr. Slump: The manga series Akira Toriyama did before DragonBall. Cute, cartoony fun!
-The Mighty Cintiq 21Ux!: This thing has change my life. The Cintiq, the New Ipod and the Sirius radio have completely changed the way I work. (With the exception of this strip, which is still analog).
-Chris Rock: Never Scared: Heard a bit of this on the RawDog channel and had to have it. There is a bit about strip clubs that is pure genius. I'm glad I heard it after I did the strip club series because I surely would have ripped it off.

Here's a few things I thought I'd plug as I've found them highly enjoyable:
-Sirius Satellite Radio: I Subscribed for Howard Stern's show (which is better than ever) but have found that the music stations are incredibly entertaining as well, and commercial free! My faves are Pure Jazz, Buzzsaw, Octane and Hair Nation.
-The 60 gig Video Ipod: One of the greatest inventions ever.
-The Ricky Gervais podcast : Karl Pilkington, the true inspiration for Loopus's stupidity.
More to come!

I was really fighting with the 2"x8" format today. This stuff is damned hard to draw at that size.
In other news, my good pal Countfunkula has started a new blog for his more politically charged work. Here's the address:
Stop by. I will be a part time contributor, although I'm not much of a political cartoonist. Maybe I should try.

PS: I entered Chippy and Loopus into a FUnkimobiles "Webcomic" competition. The winner's comic will made availible on Mobile phones as content. I entered on thimme, but for some reason Chippy and Loopus were left off the "ballot" and had to be added late.
Well, that ain't fair. So, if you all like Chippy and Loopus, do me a favor and vote! Here is the link:
I have trouble with links, so if it doesn't work, just copy it and paste it into your browser, Thanks!

Here is the first large format sunday. I know it's a little early, but the whole blogger system has gone down twice so I'm anxious to put this up. Twice! I couldn't get into anyone's blog! I tell ya, don't be suprised if I move to another blogging system or to a dedicated site in the coming days. I'll keep you posted.

I apologize if the image is at all fuzzy. My Canon LIDe is being cranky, so I had to use my old Epson to scan the strip. Hopefully, the guys at the Apple store will figure this mess out and I can go back to high quality scans. Thank you for your patience.
