"Guess Who" Board

I am always surprised when something I've drawn has the kind of charming sloppiness (as opposed to a graceless sloppiness) that reminds me of Bill Watterson's ink work*. This "Guess Who" board was a recent example. I hope to have more moments like this once I switch from Micron pens to some kind of dip pen or brush.

(Note: This was something I had to insert via Photoshop into a panel of the first page of my second Lab Rats comic for Weekly Reader's Current Science magazine.)

[Second Note: Check out this enigmatic gag cartoon Bill Watterson did for his college newspaper—now totally devoid of context for us modern readers. A whole bunch of Watterson's comics appear to have been scanned by a classmate. I really wonder who the laconically michevious Asian kid in the photograph is. He looks almost almost put-upon.]

*I know someone is going to make me regret this earnest, yet self-aggrandizing comparison later.

Where can I (and the rest of the wide readership) view your Weekly Reader comics?

You has to email me.

In this case, as in Soviet Russia, I email you!

Some may feel squeamish about eating it, but rabbit has a fan base that grows as cooks discover how easy they are to raise — and how good the meat tastes.
