The Olympic countdown is on!
Here’s a stickie note cartoon based on an IM conversation with MrBilly. I will be posting more stickie note cartoons on this blog. They are just quick fun things that might develop into a comic strip. But for now, they are just capturing different dialog ideas in a comic strip format.
Now you can buy a t-shirt or mug that features this stickie note cartoon. There are over 25 different t-shirt types such as ringer, fitted, baby, sweatshirt, and long-sleeve to choose from. Be the coolest kid on your block today!
Here’s the text to the comic: I don’t like the winter olympics booo! why not? not enough head-to-head competition. true. it’s alot of time based stuff they should have two people go at a time, would make it more exciting. in opposite directions too, on a collision course yeah! bobsled chicken!
I LOVE the Winter Olympics. MUCH more than the Summer Olympics. I can’t wait! LUGE, BABY!! :w00t:
this AIM comic strip is a great idea. very good. should the toons be more refined? something to think about. it’s nice that it’s basic and rude. But if you are going to start developing series of this, you should consider developing a consistent look that won’t get old and stale. I’m not saying it should be super-refined. It just needs to have some sort of consistent technique that won’t get boring fast.
For now the comics will be raw. I want to develop a good amount of jokes before I decide on the characters and settings. Posting them here is to show the development of ideas.
i see. it’s best to let the comic develop and evolve. It would become to overwhelming if you went gung-ho and developed full blown characters from the start. You are letting the nature of the instant message develop the comic. That’s good. Though I could see this turning into a full blown comic book with characters doing crazy things related to the conversation. Or perhaps they don’t even need to relate to the story. You could be telling two stories in the comic: one with the AIM conversations and one with the drawn subjects. You really don’t see that at all in comic books. The drawn subject matter always relates to the written word. Why is that? It would an interesting adventure if the two didn’t directly relate. I’ve started exploring some of those notions the past few days. I bought 80 comic books for $10! I’m cutting the comics up into different shapes.
An excellent comic based solely on dialogue is Dinosaur Comics at: http://qwantz.com The intellectual conversation about random topics is humorous when spoken by dinosaurs crushing houses. Then the last panel usually has some sort of zinger that makes them more human… uh… or dinosaur.
yes! that’s exactly what i was thinking about. The words and the conversation don’t relate. It’s great! Dinosaurs. People love dinosaurs. Especially when they’re destroying things. Though I really don’t like the technique used to draw that comic. I don’t like the font either.
at first glance the font used in Dinosaur Comics is annoying, but after reading the comic for awhile, it grows on you.
this is so cool boo ya
