Our Absurd Life: 08/10/21 – Spaghetti #3

Spaghetti #3

Hola Night OwlZ and Early BirdZ

Tonight’s Essential Cartoon kicks off a month long experiment.  

For a while now I’d been wanting to do a series focusing on a couple recurring characters.  I wanted it to be a cartoon that was simple enough, so that I could complete each installment without a lot of worry, stress and midnight runs.  Recently, I discovered that the 3-panel format is really a blast.  After drawing the cartoon starring the dog and his owner this past Friday, my mind churned with a life of its own all day Saturday, coming up with other cartoon ideas for them.  It also seemed like wherever I went that day, dogs were coming out of the woodwork.

So I said, why not?  Let’s explore these characters.  Let’s give them a shot at life.  I’ve already written out 10 cartoons, which says to me they’ve got some milage.  I grew up reading Snoopy, Marmaduke, and recently my sister really got me into a great series called Mutts!  Animals are awesome.  We love our animals.   I know I miss the animals I grew up and spent time with.  

I hope you enjoy the experimental ride.   I may drop an Our Absurd Life cartoon down into the mix once in a while, but we’ll see.  

Oh, and the name of this new cartoon series is “Spaghetti.”

Which I’ve decided is a great name for the dog.

And let me know your thoughts as we go along.  Thanks.

Until mañana + 1 . . .

Humor Abounds.
