can anyone tell me what i am doing that my comics are no longer big enough for this page? wordpress seems to have changed without warning me. i have figured some stuff out…but not enough.
here is the next page of the comic weener coop that i posted pages of back in january?
i tried it with panels & with ink wash paint. i’m not sure. i think i like it better this way. although i did enjoy it when it had no clear panels….
weener coop is based on my own experiences living in a cooperative house. one person i loathe quite thoroughly is represented. others might be collaborations of personalities. the character most possessed by me…would be the zombie, “gert.” gert’s first comment is in response to something twinkle said on the previous page:
i’m not sure about the ink paint. let me know if you have an opinion on it.
perhaps this is a predecessor to twinkle with an “i” from my weener coop comic. i knew this chick whom i do not like, and she always reminded me of some sort of brain-damaged fairy…. i think she inspired some of my art. is that weird? to have someone you do not care for inspire you in art or writing? probably, right? or maybe i’m obsessed. or possessed. but i was looking through old art for something to post and decided that i kinda do like this picture.
i wanted to have some preliminary character sketches of the people who live in the mansion with moses jones–coopers? squatters?–to post. i thought i could do these sketches while i listened to my online geography podcast homework…but instead i am nursing a baby who should be asleep but who likes to wake up & keep me company when i have too much to do.
i’m also still thinking of more weener coop pages. i have to search out all of my notes that i’ve left in random notebooks and on random scraps of paper….
this is the last installment i have made. i have some script written. but it may be a bit. hopefully not, but i do have 4 kids…& i am a half-time undergrad. nonetheless, reading these again makes me want to keep going. they make me laugh. hopefully you don’t have to have lived in a cooperative house to enjoy the silliness of house meetings, etc.
i really like these & find them really funny because i lived through them in an actual cooperative house. cooperative living is funny in a really frustrating way for me. i started this storyline, but, unfortunately only have 3 pages of it written. after posting it here & reading it again & getting re-acquainted with some of my characters–i would like to get back into writing this comic. i hope i can find the time & energy to do so. the artwork is a bit less demanding than moses jones & the storyline is a bit more developed, so i might be able to pump it out a bit quicker.
here’s the next page in the story. no one knows that gurt was hiding the mummified corpse of her ex-husband in her closet nor that she has three “spawn” also in her closet. this page also starts touching on the “pc” atmosphere encountered in cooperative living.
this is a page that doesn’t make much sense without the one before it or the one after it…. our protagonist (gurt) is angry at twinkle the fairy who has been having an affair with the gurt’s mummified ex-husband. also, the fairy takes gurt’s seat when she gets up to go get a beer. i once knew someone who would actually do this. it annoyed the crap out of me.
