After a break of a few months, it’s time to get back into the saddle and make more Liff.
As I type this, my brain’s buzzing trying to think of ideas to put into comic form. I can feel myself desperately picking through the comings and goings of my family and hoping that, within the day-to-day stuff that all households do, there are things that can be shaped into quick (and hopefully not too cheap) gags.
This is my family’s torment and, if all goes well, your side-splitting hilarity.
I feel I bang on about it all the time, but I do this for fun. I have the utmost respect for those who do it for a living, or are doing it with that aim. I know many brilliant, creative people out there who are trying to earn money from their cartoons (as they damn well should). That’s a bloody hard thing to do and I want them to succeed. Please go and find one of those talented artists, admire their work and either buy their products or pay them in full for the services they provide. I’m doing it for the craic, as the Irish would say, so please view the cartoon in that way.
Without getting too introspective, I’m also doing it to learn stuff. All I mean by that is, this strip isn’t what I normally do and would appreciate constructive feedback so that I get better at it. If I can improve the cartoon, I will. If I can’t, I’ll take your advice on board and keep at it. Naturally, if I’ve done it right, I like that sort of feedback too. 🙂
Of course I’m doing it for your entertainment as well. It would be a bit sad if I wasn’t! Hopefully I’m creating strips that make you think back to an equally stupid thing that’s happened in your household and chuckle. I hope that you visit the site often. I also hope that you Share and Enjoy™ the comic with your friends. So subscribe to the site, ‘Like’ the Facebook page, write comments, print a favourite and stick it on your fridge – that sort of thing! I’d be quite chuffed if you do.
Well… that’s about it. Better start writing now. Thanks for reading!
* “Share and Enjoy” is, of course, the company motto of the hugely successful Sirius Cybernetics Corporation Complaints division (and for ‘Hitch hikers Guide’ tragics like me) :-).
