I have always been here before

Week two. I started putting stuff here on Tuesdays with the idea that people would check in, and there might be some other stuff here by the other Finecomixers that you see listed to the right .. There's been some, there might be more. So keep checking in! I didn't just hijack this blog for my own self-aggrandizement. Anyway, I forgot the page again today (I scanned it, and left it on the desktop at the copy center), so here's the Kurt Calavera I did a decade ago.

Day off (now I know how that Achewood guy feels)

I have one further page in the pipe for that story, but you know what? I forgot to bring it today. So today, please enjoy this enigmatic picture, traced from a 1950s era TV tray in the collection, of some animals kicking back and watching a lumpy clown cavort on the glowing screen of the idiot box.

Say hello to the rug's topography

It holds quite an interest with your face down on it .. You know, today's installment is probably the best page I have ever drawn in my life, and it's not finished even! Here's Page Seven, and there's at least one more in the pipe before I blow up.

Blinking on and off, it's the Queen of Eyes

I don't know why she never gets anywhere with, I don't know why she never gets anywhere with, I don't know why she never gets anywhere with you. They were sitting and talking, and now it seems like they're going someplace. Ah, but .. Well, you'll see. Here's Page Six.
