April Fool’s Day! What a great day for it to be the anniversary for the Tinkersons. Today is the one year mark and what a year it was. Writing a daily comic was always a dream of mine and although I have always been creating a comic of some sort, I have never consistently pumped out a comic every day of the week, every month, for an entire year.
At first I wondered if I could do it…now I wonder if I could live without doing it.
I consider myself lucky to have such a great editor in Brendan Burford and now a friend/mentor in Jerry Scott. Brendan is a briliant editor with oodles of comic intellect in his noodle and Jerry is a genius writer who pens TWO unbelievable strips in ZITS and BABY BLUES. When these two men talk….I listen.
I am a late night worker so I am also lucky to have Conan O’Brien and Jimmy Fallon to keep me company when my beautiful wife and kids go to bed.
So, I hope you enjoyed the first year and the Tinkersons will continue to grow in year two as the name of the town in which they live will be revealed and a grandma will join the cast of characters. Included in the batch of strips in June will be a week long beach vacation story.
Thanks again for reading…Ted, Tiff, Tillman, Tweetie and Tubby truly appreciate it!
