Digital Strips is Almost Special...
I've already admitted that I've got a pretty shallow critical depth when webcomics are concerned. I'm out of the loop usually (which is a good thing at times) but when I do get my fix I get it over with the growing crew found at Digital Strips (http://www.digitalstrips.com/). A while back (well, a month ago) they started a contest challenging people to make their own comic out of a picture of their own devising. The picture in question was this simple thing:
If you're familiar with the "Specials" that I do from time to time, you already know what I did with that. If you're new, then I'll just say that I printed out a dozen or so copies of that picture and started painting them with watercolors until I had a small handful of cute little one-panel comics. You have to "get" Digital Strips to understand a few of them, but for the most part I think the general geek public might get a maybe sort of possible kick out of them. Also I have NO idea where to put these on the site, so the Blog seemed like a good place to hang them to dry. (I also had to shrink them a bit to fit them in the Blog, but that's neither here nor there.)
Fun with Photoshop fonts. Please forgive me. Also if you'd like to see more legitimate versions of my "Specials" and you haven't yet, check out Jerome and Abe Lincoln here:
Oh, and enjoy yourselves.
