This one stars me and my friend Jon, who I always trick-or-treated with growing up. I had a lot of fun with this one and it might be my new favorite. I especially enjoyed caricaturing the high school panel. Man, I had the works back then--glasses, braces, and terrible acne. Winning combination.
Crunched for time, and because the subject matter is appropriate, I decided to remake the first 2011 cartoon. It's also nice to put it in color, since it was the only one this year that wasn't. I got this in kinda late, but hopefully we'll still see it in print Monday.
Now in my 5th year at Grand Valley State, I still continue to do the comics for the college paper, The Lanthorn. This time around I'm doing them twice a week rather than once, in full color (Thanks to the new printer the school got), and I no longer have a co-writer helping me with ideas and jokes.
Here's the first 10 in order:
8/28/11: First comic, before I was informed they could be in color. This was right after he resigned and before his untimely death. RIP Steve Jobs.
9/01/11: After a few traffic accidents last year, Grand Valley widened their roads and added new traffic signals.
9/05/11: Grand Valley is a "Dry" campus, and drinking at the football games is frowned upon. At the first Laker game security was especially tight.
9/19/11: Every year our campus is invaded with crazy angry evangelists.
9/26/11: ArtPrize, a citywide art contest/exhibition is an awesome annual event in Grand Rapids.
10/03/11: ArtPrize does however has it faults...namely the tourists and "Casual art-goers" who don't actually know how to appreciate art and discern where the real talent is.
10/06/11: This is poking fun at the near-nude joggers who don't let horrible weather stop them
