What could've been

Everybody out there listen here. I played them 'Jesus Walks' and they didn't sign me. -Kanye West

Sorry for taking the 12-day break from the blog, but Where's P-Mac took a big hit and I didn't know what to do, so I just froze (and moved and started school, but mainly froze).

Early in the summer I decided I wanted to create a comic strip. I had studied several comics for years, became obsessed with F-Minus, and figured that if I made a comic named 'Where's P-Mac' maybe this site could draw a few more hits. Somehow all this would bring me closer to my ultimate goal of interviewing Paul McPherson. Plus the comics that ran in the back of the Arizona Daily Wildcat were pretty much garbage, so I figured I'd have a pretty good shot at getting my comics published.

Most importantly I just wanted students around campus to read my comic and think "Wow! If this kid can create a brilliant comic at the age of 20, maybe I can do something with my life." You know change lives and shit, make the world a better place.

After coming up with a grip of genius ideas and applying for the Daily Wildcat I finally put pen to pad and produced a few comics.

Short story shorter: I got rejected because my animation wasn't good enough.

Here was one of my samples (click image to see at full size)

I know it's no Norman Rockwell, but the art isn't that bad and in my humble opinion the art is not much worse than what's currently in the Daily Wildcat, plus the ideas totally shit on everything else.

Here are some comics currently run in place of 'Where's P-mac The Comic'Are you fucking serious?

This one is about a Mexican mermaid, which could be funny, but it just sucks and it has too much writing.

This one has half of the Art of War in it, if I wanted to read a long boring editorial, I would have read the opinions section.

Actually fuck it. I am over that phase, my dreams of living the life of Caroline in the City will be put on hold indefinitely. In the mean time, I'll focus on school and maybe LSATs, you know shit that could actually get me somewhere in life.

I'll post the rest of my comic samples sporadically, like every 12 days or so.
