So setting aside the argument of whether or not “planking” was responsible for taking a life a week a go, (and I guess it’s kind of like the argument of whether or not video games spawn high school mass shootings and other random acts of violence), my imaginary basset hound basically thinks that “planking” is a very lame past time.
But that’s just what Marvin thinks. So if you’re planking for a bit of fun and you catch me looking at you all funny, it’s because I made this deal with my imaginary dog. The things people do for shits and giggles!
This page was brought to you by the persistence of my loyal friend and reader, Fee who said I had no excuse not to deliver this week. Last week was my birthday and I had a bit of a change in schedule so the week went by and I just didn’t find the time. Blah blah blah who cares about my issues.
This has been a good experiment in terms of pushing some clarity in my drawing. Taking away the element of colour takes away a bit of life I think – I had to work a little harder to make the drawings more interesting… hoping the more I do this, the more it will help me get practice with posing and exaggeration. So it might be likely that future pages will be monotone – except for the odd stroke of euphoric mood that calls for a colour strip. Saves me a bit of time, pushes my drawing skills.
Alright, I’m just making excuses to disguise cutbacks.
I also realise this might loose half of my audience – the half that doesn’t watch the ever awesome show, Dr Who. If you really must desperately flatter me and try your best to understand this comic, please watch the episodes (alternatively Youtube/Wiki the keywords) “The Empty Child” and “Blink” and/or “Time of the angels,” “Flesh and Stone.”
