Pamo tries to be a smooth operator but she just can’t pull it off.
Your energy and drive to keep trying new things is an inspiration, whether they work out or not.
Sue- thank you for your lovely comment. It really helps.
Kiss Degas for me!
Nope, it isn’t easy. Most people that read comics and never tried drawing one think they only take a half hour to create.
If it were easy everyone would do it!
I love connecting with other creators because you definitely get it.
Haha, love the hair in the last frame.
I’m sure a great deal of work goes into each comic, but your dedication shows because your work is top-notch.
Thank you Carrie! That’s nice to hear.
My hair really looks like that after an hour of working on my comic. Haha! 😉
Mine is pretty similar after a bad session of revising.
Hmm…I bet Beatrice and Clarence would have a lotta chit chatter about their creators. I missed out but were you attempting to run two comics? I’d love to bring Beatrice back but I never was successful at creating the strip on a small scale. Maybe summer would be a good time to re-introduce her.
I do understand how you can fall in love with a character and not have the time to devote as you like. Sorta like a relationship that’s on pause but the memories and possibility of a future stick.
On another note, what’s with the glasses? Is Pamo going in very serious mode when she puts on her glasses?
YAY! Totsy is back!
I was gonna do a fiction comic called KaeTown using Pamo’s World characters but the idea isn’t ready for prime time.
You are so right- there isn’t enough time and it’s really important to accept that and pick and choose. (I’m talking to myself on that one.)
Nah- glasses were just Pamo’s attempt to hide her wild work eyes. Not a regular prop.
Thanks TotsyMae! So glad to have you here.
Go Pam! Love your sense of humor! I bet there is a LOT of work that goes into a comic. Just drawing the characters is hard enough. Then, you have to have a story line! So, congrats to you!
Thank you Peggy! You are always wonderfully supportive.
I will say it’s has gotten easier over the years- but is still a big challenge. I guess if it were real easy, I would have gotten bored by now. 😉
Your beautiful art never looks easy to me. It’s fabulously complicated and layered.
No it ain’t so easy. I find with storyline based comics I often get too caught up in telling the story that I forget to make it funny. I was gunna quit but I drew up a new episode the other day. When I finished I was happy with the story part but then realized it wasn’t funny. What’s a comic without funny bits?
I agree Tony. It’s a real challenge. I really like story telling and have written comics without the funny, just like you said. And by the time I think about drawing them, I change my mind.
I dunno- I think there is a place for comics without a lot of overt humor. Glad you are still at it.
I really relate to your push and pull with creating comics. I feel it too with my work.
Maybe you should write a comic book, Tony. Not that I should be giving you any more ideas.
No more ideas. My fingers are in my ears!!! I cant hear you!!! I can’t hear you!!!
Chocolate!!! I still can’t hear you Binky, I just read your furry little lips
Funny as fek!
🙂 Go snap a photo why don’t ya! (Thanks Frag.)
Oh oh. Renegade comic characters can be dangerous. Just ask Tony. He has more discarded characters than anyone I know. I think that’s why he keeps changing URLs, to stay one step ahead of his characters which are looking for revenge.
You see- you’ve made it sound really exciting being chased around url’s by characters! Born storyteller you are. 🙂
I agree Pam you can do long or short comic arcs. I have done both. These comics are our little universes to play with. We can always change our minds. Just being able to make something creative that other people can read is the fun part.
A wonderful comment Chris! I really like how you framed it… our little universes to play with. Nice!
How did I miss this comic? I must admit I’m not sad the clown is out of work now… clowns are scary, the stuff of nightmares, like in Steven King novels (IT) comes to mind… anyway, I think your comics are so creative and funny.
Thanks Elaine! People seem to have strong opinions about clowns. 😉
I know all about starting and stopping spin-off projects, so I get it! Clarence can make surprise cameo appearances and scare unsuspecting readers. That’s basically what clowns are for, no?
Hahaha! I gotta admit, I’m rethinking having a clown as a character because so many people find them creepy.
But- I like drawing him so he’ll probably stay. 😉
Thanks Daniel! Always a pleasure to see you here.
You’re a natural! Keep up the good work!
So kind of you to say Jason. I’m having mixed feelings so I’m back to practicing drawing. Feels good to slow down and just draw.
I ordered your latest book from Amazon. My collection is complete!
