I'm alive!

No I'm not dead...

Work duties kept me from my sketchpad for weeks, and endless storyboards soured the prospect of drawing to the point that I didn't quite find anything funny anymore.

But I have since completed my 12-page entry to the 3rd Philippine Graphic Fiction Awards at Fully Booked, so I am primed and ready for another slew of stilted cartoon humor for this blog.

I'll see if I can squeak a cartoon or two into the blog in the next coupla weeks.

Thanks for hanging around patiently till I came to my senses.

The Godfather of Comedy Passes On...

Shocked to hear that George Carlin passed away today. He was the godfather of all standups, made like 20+ comedy albums of original material and did not abandon the stage till the very end. Many humorists and comics cite him as their inspiration and role-model. His fearless way of exposing the dirty underbelly of society with wordplay and wit will be a source of laughs for many decades to come.

If you haven't already heard his stand-up, it's definitely worth a look.

Been slow on the posts as of late, drawing so many storyboards at the office it's hard to get to the panels when I get home. And almost 50 strips in, it's getting more challenging to find good material, because most of the things that annoy me I've attacked already. Haha.

49 strips! I'm hitting the big 5-0 with the next one. Keep it steady, man.
