Pug's Adventures

The last entry had a few comments about my drawing. I need to start drawing again--I've got at least three pictures on my "to draw" list. In the meantime, though, here's more of Pug's Adventures.







Pug being mad is really cute, by the way.







The last strip is interesting for a few reasons.

1) I managed to draw Stacey and Loreen near-perfectly in the first two panels. Usually, I make some small mistake when drawing them (like in the last panel of that strip, where Loreen's chin has somehow become humongous).

2) It marks the point where I stopped writing dialogue by hand and switched to computer-generated dialogue.

3) The drawings have almost no computer editing work at all. Usually, I use the computer to change the pictures from color to black-and-white. You can tell the difference--the lines are thinner.

I still think you are an amazing artist. You are so super groovy! I really love your comics, and I think it would be awesome if you made a series of Nancy Drew comics, leaving each new strip with a 'to be continued...' and then continuing the mystery in the next strip. Well, that's just an idea.

Viviana said...

Good idea, Tallulah! You would be really great at it Michael. Your comics are so funny! They should put them in the newspaper comics section! I would read them every day.

Tallulah said...

Totally! I would most definitely read your comics if they were in the newspaper... well I already read them on here!!!

I'm not able to get on here everyday, so this was the first time I saw your comics. They are great! I agree with Viviana and Tallulah... I would read them if they were in the newspaper, but seeing as your in California (I think) and I'm in Tennessee, it would have to be a nationwide comic strip like Dilbert and Garfield for me to see them, haha!

I'm able to get on here every day, but on the fourteenth I'm going to camp at the lake of the Ozarks. I'll be gone for four whole weeks! I don't know how I'm going to function without my internet!!! Well thank you so much for agreeing with me and my friend! Wow, you live i Tennessee? Is it groovy there? Yeah, Michael's comics should go nationwide! Everyone would love them! Well, thanks again for agreeing with me and Viv, Michael K.!

Tallulah said...

Sorry! Typo! I meant 'Wow, you live in Tennessee?', not 'Wow, you live i Tennessee?' Sorry about that error!

Hi Michael Kelly! Thanks for agreeing with me and Tallulah! I think they should definately put it nationwide. Everyone would love it! I think my grandpa lived in Tennesee at one time or another. Maybe he still does. Go visit my blog if you can! It is sitting there, longing to be read by you! Go! Go!

Michael lives in California????? I'm on the other side of the country! Now my life long dream to meet and touch Michael Gray will never be fullfilled!WAHHHHHHHHHHHH!
But Michael, if you you do make comics , I would love some about the British Postman and the dozen little critters.That would be the best comic since Calvin and Hobbes!(whose comics I literally worship)

Tallulah and Viviana said...

Wow, the other side of the country??? I don't think I'm on the other side of the country from him, I'm about half way there. That was Tallulah and this is Viviana. I have always wanted to meet Michael, too! I love Calvin and Hobbes also. That was Viviana, now Tallulah is going to talk again: Yeah, Calvin and Hobbes rocks. It would be so super groovy to meet Michael! Well nice talking to you again! Now Viviana is going to talk: Nice talkin' to you Patricia.
