Classic Crabby and Hon: April 30, 2010

Sorry folks, I forgot to post yesterday! On top of that, today's cartoon isn't even that funny!
Ah, well. If you're in the Baltimore area, you'll probably lose power soon anyway and you won't even be able to read this. Stay safe in the hurricane, everyone!

Classic Crabby and Hon: April 28, 2010

Not a particularly funny one, but I like how I drew it.
Click the image and all your wildest dreams will come true.*

*Based on the assumption that your wildest dreams involve a larger version of the above comic.

Classic Crabby and Hon: April 23, 2010

Not one of my favorites. I was trying to use this strip to establish that Hon's character is very sweet. Click if you want to see it larger.

Classic Crabby and Hon: April 19, 2010

It's funny to see how much my drawing style has changed in a year.
As always, click to enlarge.

PS - I stole this joke from my dad, who apparently stole it from his brother.

Click to enlarge. Duh.

Grandma, what a large banner you have!

I know. I'll fix it.

But, look! I'm trying to be a serious blogger! You like this, yes? Yes.

I have a Twitter account, so I think you can follow me @carr_toons. I think that's how that works.

And also, starting right now, I'm going to start posting classic Crabby and Hon strips on the blog. I'll be posting every Monday, Wednesday and Friday until I run out of strips, or until I lose interest in this little project.

Strips I think are crap will be omitted. Sorry to all of you who love crap.

Have you hugged a designer today?

So I don't want anyone to think I was putting down b, or b's graphic designer last week. I used to be a graphic designer, and I know how it is. I've never designed for a newspaper though, so I would imagine it's a lot more stressful with the added pressure of super-stringent deadlines.

When you're a designer, people are always asking you to make more changes and add content at the last minute, and it gets to a point where you can only fit so much information on a page! Changes were being made to Strange City at the zero hour, so I get that there probably wasn't a lot of time available to make it look perfect.

That being said, this week it looks great! I'm happy with the size and it's all on one row. The colors aren't what I had hoped for, but that's entirely my fault (Brush tool + newsprint = muddier colors than I had anticipated.)

So anyway, take time to appreciate the graphic designer where you work today. I'd like to give a shout-out to b's designer, but I don't actually know her and that would probably be incredibly weird for everyone.
