Lee sent this. I think he uses it to get around a warehouse.
It looks like a total hip and calf workout to me.
I could mess up so many joints and muscles with one of these…
If you begin and end a weird day with a particular phrase, does the day dictate the phrase or the phrase dictate the day? Ahhhh, and there’s where Superstition comes in.
Y’know, instead of regular Stition.
There used to be a series of TV commercials exhorting you to, under times of stress, to have a Snickers bar and recenter your existence or something.
I found myself, once, climbing out of the Royal Gorge in Colorado, and, after having taken my life in my hands scooting out onto a support beam to swing onto the moving incline train (which had not been moving in the hour or two it took me to climb as far as I had to that point) I thought I’d enjoy the Snickers bar that was jammed in my PFD pocket. After the first bite I resolved to send my story to the company that owned the Snickers name and tell them how I’d taken their commercial’s advice.
And then the incline train stopped.
And it was no longer parked over the support beam.
And I had to swing out over open space in order to let myself down onto the tracks and begin the climb up the rest of the canyon wall… while hoping that the train would not start back up and kill me.
And I decided, “&^%$ Snickers.”
Ever been out in the woods late and you look around into the bushes and see little green glows? I can tell you, it makes you stop and have long conversations about whether green reflections or red reflections are carnivores. Lots to discuss all of a sudden when it’s an hour hike back to the road and you count fifty seven li’l green glows.
I won’t say that golf is totally counter-intuitive… But there’s an awful lot of stuff to learn if you want to play, and not all of it makes sense on the surface.
Really, even the concept is a little tricky. “Get the ball into that little hole, dozens of yards away? Why don’t I just plunk the first six or seven into that handy lake? That’s what they seem to want to do anyhow.”
I like the linework in this comic.
There are a lot of ways the lines come out, depending on a lot of stuff.
When the characters are the ones we see all the time, and the action is close up, and there’s no reason to noodle around, the linework is fat and clean.
When I have more random characters, doing something that doesn’t come up much… I can’t help but noodle around. The linework is choppier, more random… but somehow more expressive.
I like that.
