Pamo on BSA at Biker Rags… atta girl.

Well folks… just a quick update about the whereabouts of Pamo’s World. I’m still here and still wild (cough).

I’m on an extended hiatus from ye ole blog.

In the meantime, I thought I’d share my and Jeff’s latest store video. It’s easy to see who the real funny guy is… and I’m lucky to have him.

If you are having a tough day, just remember the words of Ralph Kramden:

Pins and needles, needles and pins-

A happy man is a man that grins.

Until next time!

PAMO AND CARDBOARDIES – THE WHOLE STORY

I was getting ready to post the final half of my comic series on Cardboardies Licenses (based on the work of Tony Renouf) and realized it had been too long since my last post for the story to flow properly. So today, I’m posting the entire four page story in sequence. Thanks Tony for the inspiration! I hope I did your concept justice.

License-1

License-2

License 3

License 4Pamo is so naive, she never saw that one coming.

In my initial write up of the Cardboardies License (fan art) comics, the Tony character  flew to the states to do the consult. But then it hit me that his character wouldn’t do that at all- he’d figure out a clever way to get the job done without his leaving town.

I started this fan art series (HERE) of Tony Renouf’s work (Bored in a Record Shop) as a way to honor one of my favorite creators and as a way to expand my own process. It was time well spent.

Thanks Tony for the inspiration!

Until next toon,

Pamo

CARDBOARDIES WITH LICENSES

Cardboardies Cover

I drew this comic based on Tony Renouf’s, (Bored in a Record Shop), original creation of Cardboardies Cereal. You can see one of his MANY, MANY license’s comics HERE. Scroll down to the third comic page in that post and you can see what I mimicked to get my comic today.

As I’ve come to know Tony through his comics and blog, I’ve learned that he expresses his comic ideas without apology or compromise. He just does his thing. His comics aren’t for the faint of heart. Much of his work is violent, offensive, and smelly. (He has a real talent for making you smell his panels.) Be warned… you’ll find yourself laughing like you’re back in grade school watching a mischievous pal spurt milk out of his nose.

Then if you read enough of Tony’s work, you’ll notice that he takes on large issues like religion, factory farming, environmental degradation- and he pokes the hell out of cultural norms. My sense is that Tony often uses his work to say something important but I wonder if he’d ever admit to it. I imagine his response would be that he’s just having fun.

For some time I’ve wanted to do a comic borrowing from Tony’s style but with a Pamo’s World ‘general audience’ story. I asked Tony for his permission and he gave me a resounding thumb’s up. (Thank you Tony!) I’ve already learned a ton from observing his work and I have a strong feeling I’m about to learn a ton more from attempting to mimic it.

My Cardboardies version continues next week. So stay tooned!

REALLY SIMPLE

Really-Simple

It’s been awhile since my last comic post. I’ve been simplifying and it got complicated.

In fact, I’ve organized my entire studio space and now I can’t find anything. Ha ha!

Life is good. The iPad Pro may not be “simpler” to use than the Surface Pro but it sure is more fun. And that’s worth the switch.

Until next toon,

CODE CRAZY

So just eat some chocolate and move on!

AFTER THE MOVIE

too-loud

As soon as I finished this comic, I remembered the saying, “If it’s too loud then you’re too old.”

Gulp!
