On rare occasions, I drew a comic strip...

... back in the 90s, when I was obsessed with drawing in sketchbooks. This one had some basis in reality:

Apparently you pseudonymously drew all those comics in those 1990s Manhattan free street papers.

I was once at a party where chocolate was momentarily mistaken for blood. It involved a mixture of Oreos and beer in vomit.

Looks like "Day By Day" meets one of those 'films' they used to have on SNL.

Or what New York said.

PS Cleaning out on an old drawer?

Does this nostalgia mean our hostess will start sketching once more?

Nice work!

So we know -- from past posts -- that you like Crumb, Wolverton, Griffith, Kelly, and Herriman.

Any other cartooning favorites and/or influences?

Ann, I am a professional cartoonist with a lot of work published in the 1970s and 80s, but now doing storyboards for advertising, and I am impressed by how good these drawings are. Better than many of the indie comics I see today.

Not saying she influenced Althouse, but the cross-hatched backgrounds remind me of "Dr. Lynda J. Barry, DDS."

My guess is that the inspiration for the That Blood strip was seeing a dark stain on one of your son's shirts?

Isn't chocolate in many recipies for stage blood, particularly when filming in B&W?

Hitchcok chose to film Psycho in B&W in order to use chocolate sauce as the most realistic theatrical blood.
