Our Absurd Life: 08/30/20 – Deflated


Hola Night Owls

I can’t believe it’s not butter!

No, actually I can’t believe today is the last day of August.  Maybe there’s a few days left, but some fairy tale creature has secreted them away to some other fantastical world and the remaining days of August are now in the Hanging Trunk forest where they linger locked inside an old steamer trunk until…



Oh, well, tomorrow’s September.  September is a cool sounding month, too.  Hope it’s a little better than August has been.  No offense, August, but you were a super challenging month.

Speaking of challenges, Tonight’s Essential Cartoon brings back Blair Trapp and his best friend Ron as they discuss a certain challenging situation and how to transcend it.

Oh, yeah, I braved the outside world today and made an art supply run to Michaels.  They’ve got a sale on Strathmore drawing paper products that I took advantage of.  Buy 1 get 1 free.  You can’t beat that.  I use their 9 X 12 Bristol board with a vellum surface to do my cartoons.  It is similar to what comic book artists draw their comics on, but they use an 11 X 17 size board.  

I wish everyone a safe and happy rest of your evening.
