Sketch club and Web Comics

Sketch club is an amazing iPad app and this is my first sketch club drawing! It’s me punching a baby dinosaur I belatedly realized resembled Barney. Whatever, it was self defense.

This drawing was inspired by the fact that I was late to every engagement I’ve had this week- I’m usually late to everything, although incredibly I was never late to work- and I fantasized that my excuse was that I punched a mugger so hard I ripped the fabric of space time and ended up in a past or future ice age I then had to punch my way out of.

“Sorry, punching through space time is not an exact science. This was the closest I could get: it was either a day early or an hour late.”

In reality I have never punched anyone, probably because my punch would rip the fabric of space time. Once Colin said I could try punching him but I didn’t take it seriously. Although would I even know if I ripped space time? Maybe I did punch Colin and now we’re in some other universe…

Part of my motivation to draw more came from my recent trip to San Francisco. For a long time I rarely drew anything except a few portraits here and there, but in San Francisco I met artists, and Yinmeng also got me playing drawsomething on my iPhone, which led me to get the sketch club app and now I’m inspired! I’m thinking about drawing web comics because my non-portrait drawings would be too inexplicably weird in any other form.

I have fantasies and conversations with real people who don’t exist- my last imaginary conversation was with Scientist Ryan Gosling who agreed it was possible I’d already ripped space time. I’m not like tim rogers who plans out every possible conversation for the next 6 months, but if you think I say weird stuff, keep in mind you’re getting the edited version- my unfiltered thoughts are even weirder. I don’t want you getting the impression my stories about my great cat are exaggerated, or, if you’re an accredited investor, that it’d be unwise to give me all your money to manage. Thus consider all my weirder drawings to be part of my web comic, a genre where all kinds of weirdness abounds, of which this drawing is the first installation. Web comic name suggestions welcome.
