brushy brush



I still can't get my head around why this funny person I live with acts so finicky about the messes I make, but can't brush his teeth without merrily leaving the mirror coated in spray. I tried to show him this technique in which one holds one's lips securely around the brush and moves it around without opening one's mouth, but I think he revels in this singular glorious moment of domestic flamboyance.

I was just friended by bsabo and discovered the amazing comics and illustration work on her website, have a look! You can read two mini comics in full online (I love the storytelling in The Shortcut), and see first chapters of two books. I really want to read more of her comic Bad Lands.

tozocomic is introducing us to the second little mecha-golem in his ongoing Tozo webcomic. I think Klikker's fab (see my fan art), and I think I'm going to like this Tikker, too!

And ellenlindner referred me to this great New York Times article about the classless classiness of the Obamas on their recent visit to Britain. (Thanks, Ellen!)

Oh, I guess that's also me every morning. But I live on my own and then I clean the mirror the next morning to wipe the steam from the shower.

It's... a guys thing ?

Also B.Sabo, yes, yes, yes, thank you ! I'd been reading "Badlands" over at Act-I-Vate, but I didn't know about his/her (really, no idea) other comics and works... Bookmarked for sure !

Ooh, it lets me read one more page of Badlands on Act-i-Vate! I wonder if she's done any more on it. (She's listed there as Brittney Sabo, so I figure it's a woman.)

Yeah, must be a guy thing. It's just that he really is SO tidy about everything else! Funny.

Also I do love that little potato-shaped character with his rubbery arms... He looks like how I feel early in the morning, sometimes.

That's a great article. I get really angry when I see people treat service staff/goverment paid workers like they're beneath them.

On a completely different topic, somethings been bugging me! I drew a child in a jar being watched over by an evil mad scientist bird a few weeks back, was looking at your website and noticed a drawing of a child in a jar! I'm pretty sure I'd seen it before as well...I must have subconciously absorbed it! I hope you don't think I'm copying you, it was an accident!:(

No worries. :-) I do that from time to time, and sometimes even when I haven't seen the first picture at all, but when I see them together, it looks like there's no way I didn't copy. Anyway, drawing a human in a jar is inevitable when you're working at your museum.

Fortunately he does clean it up, but only once a week. I just ignore it the rest of the week, hoping he'll overlook my mess.

morning[ish] ! enjoyed being amused by overenthusiastic toothbrushing foam explosion. ;) Unfortunatly I can't quite get it up to the mirror in my flat [as it reflects only the top half of my head because it's set so high up.]

I have a sudden mental picture of you brushing with your goggles on and it's making me snort my tea!

Lovely. Reminds me a bit of Tom Gauld.

Flamboyant toothbrushing? Makes me wonder if he does any other flamboyant cleaning...

Excellent. But I bet Stuart could top that! You've never seen such focused determination.

Great One-pager!!
Love the new 'toothpaste' strip! Hope this, the 'how i draw comics' and all the other little gems you treat us with will all be collected into something 'buy-able' at some point??

I love this comic. And agree that your great short comics should be collected in a book at some point...

I'm not saying anything new here, but that character is great. He starts out looking like a depressing character and then WHAM cleanly filth everywhere.

WHAM! Sudden mood changes are the best. ;-)
