Hello again my friends, how are we all? So after all this time, I finally got to do some work and spend a day to myself last Friday and man it felt goooood. To be honest, I didn’t do as much work as I really should have, I did fuck around a lot, hey I had the day to myself the first in over 6 months, what do you expect? Anyway, I did pencil in 2 cartoons, 1 for today and the other for next week. Usually the penciling process is the one that takes the longest and at times the most frustrating so I thought I’d get that out of the way first.
Once again, this idea just came to me out of the blue the other day when I saw some guys t-shirt that said “Rock Off” and I thought about the paper, scissors, rock game(Roshambo as it’s sometimes know, hence the title, “The Paper, Scissors, Rock Dilemma” was too long). Straight away I thought of anthropomorphising (god damn I love that word) a piece of paper, a rock and some scissors. I’ve done a cartoon about this before, it was more about a rock that looks like he always ‘beats’ his paper wife, but that didn’t stop me from ‘double dipping’. But this time I thought, what if they had to fight over the last of something what would they do? And pretty much the first thought I had was, if they were on a plane that was about to crash and there was only one parachute. So, for once this idea was quite and easy one. I like the easy ones, but to be honest it isn’t quite as satisfying as knowing there’s a good idea there and not giving up and working on it and finally getting an awesome idea out that’s for sure.
I scrutinize and over-examine my pageviews on this blog page a little bit too much at times and I have noticed that whenever I get lots of pageviews it’s because of you guys. Whenever I get a simple Facebook “like” on the link to the cartoon and especially when someone shares the link on their page I always get heaps more views. So please, if you like a cartoon share the love! I really love making this blog and it makes me so happy when I see other people liking and viewing all my hard work. Thank you so much to all the people that do share for me, you guys rule.
Ok, until next time!
