18.Aug.2009 Introducing ‘All Day Pizza Buffet’
Here’s the deal…
I’ve been extremely busy over the past few weeks, which is usually a good things—especially when it is the “fun busy” that I’ve been—but it has really cut back on mt drawing time. My busy-ness had me playing around with the idea of picking up a simple and small drawing project I could focus on in my spare time. Combine that with recently discovering Post-it Note Stories and being completely blown away by the expressive simplicity used to tell really fun little stories on little yellow squares and Drawn!: The illustration & Cartooning Blog linking artist Ryan Pequin’s simple—and simply awesome—five-minute comics (See those now at www.threewordphrase.com), then toss in a suggestion by my girlfriend about how much time I could spend drawing if I utilized my commute time for doodling…
And Bam! All Day Pizza Buffet was—kind of—born!
My goal is to make sure to doodle some sort of comic everyday that in some way is connected to my commute. That means, each of these cartoons will either be drawn on the train, conceived of during the ride itself or during my walks to and from the train. Essentially, it’s a forced drawing exercise that’ll hopefully be funny.
Also, I was originally going to call this Commuter Comics till I found out it’s a comic shop in Jersey, so I opted for something completely unrelated. Thus, All Day Pizza Buffet. That’s also why the first installment, which I drew up last night, says Commuter Comics in the corner, FYI.
Anywho, they’re simple and I need to figure out which lightness of blue pencil doesn’t scan in, but hey, it should be a fun little doodle everyday (that I commute) from here on out. So, please keep heading back and supporting this effort in doodledom!
