Also, the Return of Johnny Onassis! And the introduction of Hannah, Lady Winterbottom.
Had a lot of fun playing around with grayscale on this one. Decided to go with a nice, short strip so I could play around and try different techniques on different panels. Here’s a couple variations:
I really dig the German Expressionist Woodcut look on that last one.
Hello, Government Watch-dogs: Strictly a fanciful jest! I don’t really want to over-throw society…heck, makin’ comics is about American as you can get! Even more than Jazz, I think they are the most purely American of the Arts (even if the French do it better).
So I have my own version of Patreon going: In response to the numerous requests by friends to “put me in your comic!”, I will draw in anybody who buys me a beer. First up: my bestest friend Nuvia (here known as Floja), who will totally do anything for another Stoli.
If this seems like a private, family joke to you, well, it is. I hope you still find it funny. Many thanks to the wonderful Juliane (here known as Ilsa) who helped me with the German, and is also a swell human being. Thanks also to Snacks (AKA Winifred, AKA Deanna), without whom there wouldn’t even be this stupid comic.
Deanna, sorry that this doesn’t look much like you. I was mostly trying not to give you Man-hands this time.
And here is where I unleashed Gutmeisterlich for the first time upon an unsuspecting world.
Think I’m going to have to re-do the Jane Seymour panel. What a god-awful drawing. But, I was in a hurry.
