This was a from a story from my childhood, I’m not sure if it was myself or one of my siblings who dropped peas through the hole in the floor, or maybe it was my dad’s story. Hm. I’ll have to ask.
Anyhow, a vase seemed more convenient, and since it’s such an absurd prop, I enjoyed bringing it out whenever I had a decent idea for it.
I have no strong feelings, myself, about brussel sprouts, all I know is my brother once tried to see how many he could fit into his mouth at once. Ah, the days.
I feel I’m pretty good at letting things go. But sometimes I’m torn. In today’s strip, part of me likes the wordy babble of Vachel in this particular case…. but part of me wants to edit out about 2/3 of the words. :)
As you can see, I have reprinted the four “Little Dee” books as two 8.5×11 thick anthologies (too many to put into one book). Pretty, bigger, and the strips are 7″ wide (they were 6″ in the previous books). At TopatoCo get ‘em while they’re hot!
Today’s strip was a bit of me mocking myself for loving using silly sound effects. Recently in Spacetrawler (my current comic) I drew a space stopping quickly and used a sound effect like squealing tires.
