toasting the DFC

The day after I heard the news about the DFC, I just couldn't settle down at my desk to my regular work. So Gary Northfield (creator of Little Cutie) and I rushed to the local cafe and ate lots of extra-thick toast with marmalade to drown our sorrows. Here is us eating toast:



Then yesterday, Woodrow Phoenix (Donny Digits, That's a Horse of a Different Colour) and I hopped on a bus up to Oxford to eat big burgers with the remaining two office staff, our much beloved Ben and Will. We spent some time plotting about how to make the last issue extra fab and Woodrow had a very big lime milkshake. (Because Woodrow is milkshake powered.) So that is why I don't have many images posted on the blog just at the moment, we are hauling ash to make the last copy super twinkly.

Super twinkly! Nice! When does it hit the shelves?

I had a dream last night in which my daughter and I were playing with a rubber ball near a school in England, then you came up with a sketchpad and told us to hold still, just as you started sketching us, one of the sheets of paper from your sketchpad came loose and blew away across the field. I chased after it and plucked it from a bush, and it was a drawing of Stuart standing smugly, chin raised and arms folded, next to a Vespa, with his tie blowing back over his shoulder. The caption read "Every bit as much a child as he appears" (in the dream, I think, you and he had been doing something silly and immature earlier in the day, and the drawing was a response to that...)

Then the dream went off in this other direction involving me and Esme chasing the rubber ball into a crowd of schoolchildren.

No idea what it means.

That is wacked out! ;-)

The DFC won't hit the shelves, unfortunately. :-( It's been available by subscription, but you might be able to buy some back issues if you're lucky. I hear they're still taking orders for remaining individual back issues by telephone, if not by website, but things aren't entirely clear yet.

Aw, man! I'll only forgive you if you promise to make lots more fab comics.

Haha, Stuart just saw your comment and said, Oh, isn't that the guy who's driving the car in the Rapture?
