This one doesn’t have that much to do with the story, which is about dressing your pet up for Halloween, but the chance to draw Obama putting lipstick on a pig was too good to pass up. Published in the New York Observer.
The first comic in my new Anapest series, “Apple Festival” is a single panel comic that’s guaranteed to rhyme.
I drew this story back in June. I was experimentally trying to do the 24 hour comic thing on a smaller scale, turning out a page an hour for six hours. In the end I fell short, winding up with five pages for six hour’s work. Most likely it was the extra time l spent writing all the rhymed dialogue that tripped me up. Nevertheless, l had so much fun doing this one that it inspired my new all-rhyming series Anapest. See the entire comic at Top Shelf.
