The following two cartoons are the first of an experimental strip that I started and have been tinkering with for some time now. It's experimental in that my usual approach to cartoons is mostly slapstick in nature complete with cheesy drumrolls (now there's a visual!) and even cheesier cliches. Well, ink.re.ments will be mostly biographical in that the stories told have actually happened to me or I was a part of in someway. And it may be just a story told and not a gag at the end. There will be some tweaking and exaggeration, of course. This is a cartoon strip after all. We'll see how it goes.
The deep sea diver is me as I ponder these past and somewhat current events. I hope that the inclusion of this guy at the beginning of each strip won't be too much of a distraction, but you the reader (hopefully) will be able to tell me that much.
This first one is, of course, based on my dog and what I was lucky enough to see of her in those first few months. Who am I kidding, this is a constant.Some of these strips will be an inside joke, like this one below, but I'm hoping that I can work around that and make it enjoyable and entertaining nonetheless. I showed this one to the friend who gave such an inspiration and I think that I scared him. He wasn't expecting a cartoon to made out of it. I can be cartoonishly dangerous. So, all names and faces will be changed to protect the innocent.
The next installments will be a two parter based on an event when I was a young lad and had my first run in with the law.
