This strip was one I couldn’t wait to draw when I wrote the gag. Its also one that may or may not be as funny to you as it is to me. I live this Every. Single. Day. So, that makes it more of a weight off my shoulders to “get it out there” than the average strip, I guess. And its not just weight that I’m talking about, its all the issues of growing older that I could apply to this. The difference between how we look at things when we are young and how we look at them later in life could be a comic strip all by itself. And I guess it is: “Pickles” anyone? My mom loves that strip.
The other thing I wanted to mention is that, hopefully, I’ve picked up some new eyes here on “Outnumbered” because I just spoke (with my brother Tony) at Savannah College of Art and Design the last few days of this week and we had a blast. What a great school! We had a great time and met many really talented students! I URL- dropped this strip, so I hope some of you are SCAD students and reading this.
Lastly, thank you to some of my new supporters on PATREON. Its off to a good start and I’m having a blast doing sketch requests and showing you the rough version of this strip, the day before it comes out! Don’t know what it is?
