For the Birds: All Gummed Up

Here's a stand-alone strip I drew at Hofstra a few weeks back. It took me about 10 minutes to draw & about another 10 to ink & color it. I didn't completely color it, I didn't color Randy or a background for it.

This will not be part of my multi-part comic that I'll begin posting tomorrow. I apologize for the blurriness of the drawings. Enjoy!

That is exactly how I used to do C&L.
I like the energy of it!

John & Gaz... thanks!

This was a quickie. The teacher that I work for, Frank Giella, told me just to do a quick comic to show the younger kids what to do. At the same time I thought of what happens when you step in gum & just exaggerated it. It's like the infamous Pluto vs. flypaper gag. Pure frustration.

Today's comic was different. I thought of a quick idea of the story & drew it out, but didn't think out what I was going to do next. I didn't look before I leaped.
So now I'm stuck in a corner & now trying to think my way out, that's why I don't know when I'll post the next installment.

Thanks again guys!
