Okay, Iâ€™m finally updating my blog. I feel like a student who shirks her homework assignment for weeks, then finally sits down to do it and discovers itâ€™s not so hard after all.
Anyway, I thought Iâ€™d post something fun today. Here are examples of strips that never made it to the papers. This one was supposed to be published in September — I pulled it at the last minute:
I thought this cartoon showed the character, Jill, in a negative light, as if copping out on her â€œmotherlyâ€ responsibilities. Still, I like the flow and timing of the strip.
Hereâ€™s one I wrote in â€™06 but never published for more obvious reasons (parents, avert small childrenâ€™s eyes). Iâ€™ve written some edgy ones, but this crosses the line for the funny pages.
Thankfully, Iâ€™ve learned how to self-edit.
If any other near-misses come up, Iâ€™ll post them from time to time.
