Now that I think about it, “You only get one chance to make a good impression” would’ve been a better caption.
Took ’s mostly hand drawn with a copied patch here or there. But I screwed up and ended up having to do it twice. That wasn’t fun.
My tux was made out of the finest polyester … though I think it’s cooler to say it’s made from dead dinosaurs. Pictures on my facebook, instagram and Twitter pages.
Just in case you all hadn’t heard, Loose Parts on Thursday night won the National Cartoonists Society Reuben Award for Best Newspaper Panel. In short, you have good taste in comics. Thank you for support. Now I have to get my tux cleaned and get back to work.
Oh yes. In the Galapagos, the animals aren’t scared of your premise. You can stand three feet away as they do their mating dances or nest or whatever. And there are literally hundreds of them around you. Amazing place. Hard to get to, but an amazing place.
Inside story: I wrote this one, and actually started drawing it, while in the Galápagos Islands this spring. Blue-footed Boobies were everywhere. They’re fascinating … in everything from their mating dance (which, there, you can watch from two feet away) to how they dive bomb the water at near 60 mph. I just had to do a cartoon about them. Thanks for indulging me.
Dave and I are friends. Wait till I call him and tell him we had a moment. He’s also Canadian, and therefore, nicer than I am … despite the fact that his bacon is ham.
Just a quick note, this cartoon was conceived of and prepared months ago. I am aware of its reference to Alan Arkin in the movie The In-Laws. Love that movie. But just wanted to be clear that this is pure coincidence following his recent passing. But any time someone says ‘serpentine,’ I hear it in Peter Falk’s voice.
Note to self … people like herb jokes.
