The second panel is what I based the cover of Little Dee Book #1 on. When I came to design the cover, I went through all the strips for the book, and used the panel I visually and emotively loved best.
But I’ve always had a deep nostalgic love for autumn, so it is no surprise. :)
I have been very fortunate in that Brian Huisman (A friend of Don’s) leant a hand with Little Dee. It is now easier than EVER to browse Little Dee original Strips which are for sale. He built an entire archive of: ONLY STRIPS FOR SALE. He also helped rebuild the regular old archive, if you wish to see.
And now back to my regularly scheduled mianderings…….
Since I was already working on the stupidest premise, I decided to work with the stupidest solutions.
Although I like that Ted so casually assumes that Vachel’s lying.
Sometimes fun ideas come from the stupidest premises. If that is true, I definitely was aiming high.
I wonder how much this strip defines the characters. Determination, brawn, and brains. Limiting, but an okay basic go at it. :)
I have a rather wicked sense of humor when it comes to slapstick. I know slapstick is something you like or you don’t, and even if you do — there’s a wide variety of slapstick.
I like mine very wicked. The more wrong the better. BECAUSE it’s wrong.
And then there’s the fitting of it into the gentle world of Little Dee.
