I've been doing a lot of research and thinking work for this comic I have in mind. It's fun and exciting having ideas clumping together in my conscious and subconscious minds, just like when I was writing novels.
Especially reassuring is having a personal project I actually want to work on, because for a long time nothing stuck.
...But I'm not going to talk about it here. Not yet. I believe it's really important for me to draw this thing just for myself, and not jump ahead to considering what anyone else would think of it.
So, instead, I present dog pictures!! That's what the internet wants, anyway.
First, the test-run of Doug's winter jacket.
Is it me, or is his face saying, "You're kidding, right?"
Unfortunately, it also covers up his willy, and he spends much of our walks peeing on things, so that doesn't work. I'll need to make some sort of adjustment to it -- though I don't know how we're ever going to do a fitting with him.
Second, I present The Amazing Douglas, who has the uncanny ability to detect a buried piece of bread at ten paces (and finds bread where one would not expect there to be bread).
