Epic Friday: Heading Into Next Week

Little Matt and Teddy have already decided to bravely head into next week.  Ahead of them is, as always, a big blank canvas, and the hope that on the other side are five new comics that don’t exist yet.
Making a daily comic is hard.  Thankfully I have some giant shoulders to stand on.  Where would I be without A.A. Milne and E.H Shepard’s Christopher Robin and Pooh to guide me? Lost, like Piglet in the Hundred Acre Wood.  Dr. Seuss and Charles Schultz – I am always looking back on your stuff for help.   Thank you for guiding me, gentlemen.  And as always, thanks to the Mister G Kids adjunct think-tank: Mike & Zan Olson.
See you on the other side, everyone! Next week, we’ll reflect on six months of Mister G Kids.  And as always, thank you for coming back to enjoy it!

Epic Friday: Teddy is Taking me to School Today

It’s Epic Friday! These days can be for fantasy comics or child-like wish fulfillment.  So today I wanted to draw a picture of something really cool – my childhood teddy bear growing giant and carrying me to school! (Actually this is a hybrid of my bear and my brother Mark’s bear.  His bear had a round body like this, but stubby legs.  My bear had long limbs, but a beat-up not-so-cute face.  So I took the best of both bears.)
Yes, that is a Crayola Crayon sky! It’s a color called “robin’s egg blue” from the 120-pack.  Back in my day, the alternatives to blue were cornflower and periwinkle, both of which sucked.  Today’s kids: you are lucky!
Have a great weekend, everybody! See you tomorrow for Weekend Kids #5!
