Sandia decides to use her new found powers to help out the monkey that saved her life (after causing her all kinds of pain)!
Have a fantastic week!
A snottily good drawing Joseph
Thanks, Tony! I just hope she doesn’t sneeze!
What Tony said! It’s fantastic!!
Love the perspective too.
You have a fantastic week as well Joseph. Thank you for sharing your glorious work!
Thanks, Pam! I have as much fun with perspective as Sandia does with her boogers!
A snotling hook, the grosses of all saves!
She certainly puts this save into question!
Thanks for giving us a great shot of his molars and not up his shorts! Excellent drawing!
Nacho loves to flaunt his dental work! And it certainly seems he’s comfortable running around a substation in boxers!
If that was my rescue I’d say let me die! Crazy cool idea and great page layout Joseph!
I think the monkey is thinking the same thing, Mat!
Thanks for the compliment and visit :O)
I don’t know how you do it dude. You got some of the most outrageous motion in your strips. Fantastic!
Thank you, PJ! I play out the scene in my mind and jot down rough glimpses of shots. Then I think about how my favorite artists would approach the scene (angles and composition). Finally I start sketching.
I’m always thinking of ways to outdo myself and other artists that have done stretchy characters before.
She’s going to save that Monkey and that’s that. Quit being such a snot about it! 😛
She’s diggin’ deep about pickin’ the monkey with her mucus! I wonder if Nacho will ever get over on how much her little girl has changed.
That’s definitely a unique skill Sandia has!
All those years of playing with her boogers has paid off! It’s snot only for eatin’!
At least I don’t see nose hairs! 😉 Great artwork, Joseph!
Oh, that’s gonna change! There’s gotta be nose hairs! :OP Thanks, David!
Ha! geez. this is amazing.
Thanks, Brad! Sandia’s ready to play the Pick a Monkey Claw Game! :OP
Umm.. no, no, I’d rather not be saved, thanks! Wo ho, look at all that nostril action! Joseph, this page so reminds me of one of my all-time favorite artists, Jack Cole, who created Plastic Man. If you ever get a chance to see any of his work on Plastic Man around the early 40s, you’ll see what I’m talking about. This is an amazing page!
Thanks, Mark! I love love love Jack Cole’s work! I have several 1940s Plastic Man drawn by him. I also have all DC Archive volumes of Jack’s Plas. He’s a big inspiration to me and the reason why I created Gummy Girl.
As an aside, I was at a comic con in NYC looking at Plas comics and this guy started talking to me about how much he liked Jack Cole’s work. I looked up and immediately recognized that it was Art Spiegelman! We talked a long time about Jack and some of the intermittent ghost artists that worked on Plas. Together, we looked through lots of Plas comics and distinguished the real Cole art from the ghosts. It was an amazing experience! I learned a lot from that encounter. Thanks, Art!
I also have many of Will Eisner’s The Spirit DC Archives. Right now I’m waiting on the IDW Eisner Artist’s Edition of The Spirit. It’s a HUGE book that prints in actual size the artwork created by the master. Right now I have Sergio Aragones’ and Jack Davis’ printed art. AMAZING WORK! I can spend hours looking over their work!
I hope IDW does one on Jack Cole! Thanks for taking me back several years, Mark. :O)
PS – When I was talking with Art Spiegelman, a sudden flash came to me about how amazing he is: his work on the New Yorker mag, underground comix, MAUS, the Pulitzer Prize and his other accomplishments. I almost fainted!
Wow! That must have been some encounter!
Cartoonists love to share! I don’t think Art gave it a second’s thought, especially since he edited his own book featuring Plas and Jack Cole. I’m sure he was enjoying that conversation, as well. Art came to where I was working a couple of years ago, and he was so kind and friendly. I took a pic with him and we look like Gandalf and Bilbo together. I was surprised at how tall he was!
Congrats on having such a wonderful experience with such an esteemed cartoonist, Joseph! I’m glad you like Jack Cole’s work, he’s a real inspiration! I’d love to see Gummy Girl…
Cool! And yes, he’s real down to earth. I didn’t think to take a picture. But it’s a great memory and experience. Thanks, Mark! I can’t wait to explore all that I can do with Gummy Girl. :O)
Thanks, Peter. It was!
Snot easy being green. Fantastic compositions.
Not only are these tasty morsels Green, they’re Organic too! Free range!
Thanks for the compliment and visit, Rich!
Who nose what evil lies in the sinuses of men?
I don’t know. Only Nostrildamus can predict what a man’s mucus will do!
How snotty can look cool. 🙂
There’s a lot of research that went into this page, Daniel! Lots of booger pickin’ fun!
Yikes! What a page! I’m glad o see we all love Jack Cole and Plas! This also reminds me of Basil Wolverton! Really great crazy stuff Joseph! (Oh I HAVE the EISNER book form IDW and it’s WONDERFUL!)
