Chippy and Loopus Deluxe....I guess.
Back in July of 2005, I was fired from Sony for reasons I can't discuss legally. I started working for Pixar in October. In that 3 month span of unemployment, I worked in the yard, planting roses and whatnot, read books, cooked. I also befreinded a syndicated comic strip artist named Brian Basset, author of the syndicated comic strips "Adam at Home" and "Red and Rover".
He stumbled on my blog purely by accident and liked the scribbly little comic strip I drew. He asked me why I hadn't tried to do it professionally. "You mean besides all the swear words?" I replied? He said the characters were strong enough that I could probably develop a feature without swearing. I was able to draw up a few samples before I got swept up in moving and Pixar. I'm still working on this. I fully intend to make this a syndicated comic strip someday. Below is the "Safe" version of the very first strip I ever did.
