27.10: Sven and I are amazed that I have reached day 300!! Yes, caribou is an American reindeer and Sven is supposably a Norwegian reindeer... You know, tomeito-tomato...
Wow, three hundred!!! I think I missed those hundred. Still I am amazed at having reach this far. Some of these I am not very happy with, some of them I am. My cousin started something on day 100 and he continued on day 200; he listed his favorite top five. I would love to hear your top five or even which one is the most memorable to you.
My top five of the last hundred are (in no particular order):
25.10.14: old joke but this one is with some personel details. People who get will get it and I actually miss them as much as you do. For the rest of you, sorry, Charlie's Pizza is closed for business for ever.
24.10.14: it had to be a Star Wars rederence. Amazingly my first one so far and I also want with a character that very few people know about.
Aayla Secura was created by Jan Duursema and John Ostrander for the Star Wars comic. When George Lucas saw the character he decided to make her a character in the new trilogy. Very few characters has made this transition, making her a unique character in more ways than one. (I hope I get corrected if any of these facts are wrong...) As I have had the pleasure to know Jan and she was actually kind enough to try me out as an inker once upon a time (the closest I have ever gotten to have anything to do with Star Wars), day 297 goes out to her.
I will also point out that the issue whether or not a lightsaber is a laser, sparked a bit of a discussion between me and some fellow geeks. I decided that it is!! Say I'm wrong!! Come on, say it!!! I dare you!!
22.10.14: a little bit of a departure of style and technique on this one, but every now and then that's good for the soul. Don't think I've done anything like this since day 64, possible day 153, but you be the judge. Are any other pieces you think I have done this differently from my normal style?
20.10.14: didn't make this up. Real moustache from real life.
If you are in the Cork area, go down by Lavitts Quay (towards Coal Quay) and check out the two meter high comic book pages by myself and other talented members of the Cork Comic Creators. They look awesome!!
18.10.14: yeah, I know, it makes NO sense...or nonsense... Depending on how you look at it. And you know what, I think I am funny. Or at least I think I think I am funny... Or something like that... The sad fact is that day 209 has now become a reality, so this does make sense to me... (No it doesn't...)
17.10.14: you may have to have a four year old who has attended one or two ballet-classes to be farm iliac with the phrase. However, this is what those famous toes look like and results in the question; which side would you be one?!?
12.10.14: no hidden jokes, lost in translation today. Some bad handling of fonts and hopefully enough storytelling to make you wonder what is actually going on behind this open/closed sign. Hopefully this is not the same poor schmuck from day 10...
11.10.14: this one is for you and me and possible us two who grew up in Norway. If you get it you know what I'm talking about and if you do, let me know. If you don't get it, I can't explain but please let me know if you like the drawing of a clog sailing down the river...
09/10.14: there were plenty of options here of both spaceships and space-adventurers but I had to go with this classic. Anything that produces such amazing lines like "he he he, had the sczhilly thsing in reversthe...", "got the drop on you with my disthintegration gun. And brother, when it disthintegratesth, it disthintegratesth...well, whatta yah know, it disthintegrared..." and "i claim this planet in the name of Mars. Isn't that lovely?" is fantastic in my eyes. Now let me hear you all say it; "I am Duck Dodgers in the 24th and a half century!!"
06.10.14: I did not realize that herself had not appeared since day 257 and the two of them last made their presence know on day 248... Guess they were due...
The scary thing with this one is that I really haven't taken that many liberties with this waterslide. Yes, I added the twirly-twirl and backwards-loopy-drop (and those are the technical terms... Kind of...well, at least that's what my daughter calls them...) but the size of the rest is actually a little smaller than the original... I would not go on it!!
05.10.14: ah, the useless facts I have learned thanks to this blog. Like the first printed circuit board was created in 1936 by Paul Eisler. Felt that I could not use doctor professor von Fricken-Flicken-Blicken auf Brickenstein (day 218) again, just because, when Mr. Eisler fit so perfectly himself. As you could see, I had no problem sending in Jon Pay to the rescue...
01.10.14: another new month. Had to start it with a smile!!
I figured I'd pick up where I left if yesterday. If you want to know about the bullet hole in Frankie Cunzo's hat, you'll have to read Jon Pay, PI: Bullets, Babes & By-lines. A hangman's noose has already been shown but than again so has Frankie's bowler hat (check out day 17)... In fact, a bowler hat featured as early as day 8.
