Introducing Bugsy. We'll see Bugsy in the next strip, for now he's rooting around in the trash.
As for me, right now I'm still trying to recover a lot of my tools from switching PCs and operating systems. Bru is still evolving, and so is my style so bear with me as I continue to mold him.
While continuing to clean, I also ran across this little gem:
This was from last year's Heroes Con in Charlotte. I had this big plan to get a bunch of buttons made after I met the people at Frank Comics. I only got as far as getting Chris from Capes N Babes and Nick from Think Weasel to draw for me. Next year!
So go check out Frank Comics - Read Mr. Waffle while you are there.
Of course, go check out Capes n Babes
And then go check out Think Weasel
Speaking of Heroes Con, this weekend is Charlotte Minicon! This will be my first year attending, maybe next year I'll have a booth. For now I'll be walking around with business cards and art cards and spending money I can't afford to spend.

Okay folks, here's a quick post to let everyone know that I'm not dead. We had some system issues here. One old PC resurrected and an installation of Ubuntu later and I'm back up. Friday's comic has been delayed until Tuesday.

This is the special edition I promised:
And now a couple of quick shout outs on the cameos. Several months ago I mentioned that if you replied I would include you in today's strip. I was able to include some of you, more will come soon.
Fozzie "Little John" Bear is for you John. Sure, I should have used Sweet'ums but I like bears.
Mike (Hobbes) the Tiger is for Jenn. What is Mike reading? Funny you should ask. That is a copy of Vial 023: A Father's Pursuit of Justice by Gary Cross. I hope Brad would have liked it.
Finally, Marc from Capes-n-Babes GOT his coffee. Check out his comic at http://www.capesnbabes.com/.

I freely admit, this was not the strip I had originally planned to run today. This one is better. As you can see, I'm still finding my style a little here. I'm mixing media a little: water color, ink, colored pencil, and some coloring on the computer. I REALLY like how the water color looks here, but I leave that for you to judge.
More strips next week!
