Still on vacation. Encountering a lot of skunks. They would be awfully cute, if not for the whole anal stink glands thing. They are very hard to scare away- and of course you don’t want to startle them. I did some Wikipedia-ing on my phone (real camping, right?) and it turns out they are really reluctant to use their stink for defense- it takes them a long time to recharge. The staff at the camp we’re staying says they haven’t had a case of skunk attack in 10 years, despite the fact that the place is crawling with them. Now that I have a false sense of security, I actually like them. They’re like cats, but less rude. One young one walked right through my legs- apparently they have a strong sense of smell, but are extremely nearsighted. I wonder if it’s legal to keep them as pets in NYC?
This has been a pretty crazy week, and I’m gearing up to go traveling for the next two weeks. I’ll still be working on the comic, but… you know how that goes. Meanwhile I’ll have a few blog posts to hopefully hold your interest, like this one about a recent NYC event:
Not that she needs another one, but rumor has is that Eartha scored a free Trojan Vibrator in the Meat Packing District last week. According to Elsa, the preppie girl in khakis behind the “pleasure cart” asked Eartha if she was really sure that she wanted the advanced model. “Honey, do I look like I can’t handle a few attachments?”
Franky, perhaps feeling a little threatened, asked Elsa why she needed the device. She replied with a smile, “This one’s for YOU!”
Every year I swear I’ll contribute to March MODOK Madness, where artists blog different takes on Marvel Comics’ Mobile Organism Designed Only (for) Killing. I remember too late, and have to look on with envy at all the versions and perversions of Jack Kirby’s crazy character design. Every year… until now!
Mine is “Mo’Donk-a-Donk”. Because Mind Blasts are no match for a genetically engineered booty!
A friend at the Spring Street Gallery in Saratoga Springs, NY asked me to contribute a custom painted skate board deck for their gallery show On Deck. The opening was Saturday and the boards are now up for auction online. Proceeds go to save their local skate park! Here is your chance to own a piece of original Frankenstein art, showing Eartha in a state of undress, bathing in the blood of- is that a sparkly vampire?!? Acrylics on varnished, stained wood.

Aaron Colter of COMICS ALLIANCE, venerable site of all things comic, has seen fit to include our humble ‘toon in his list of THE BEST WEBCOMICS EVER- THIS WEEK! ( Why’d he have to add that last part? )
We’re in seriously great company there- like Boulet’s “Darkness“, which I hate because it’s beautifully drawn, funny, and worst of all, a 24-hour comic (my last 24 hour comic was one page, covered with tears).
