I like tripe. Properly prepared with a creamy tomato sauce, it’s one of my favorites.
I marked your words but I cannot reveal whether you are correct or not.
It used to be retort guys would say. Then it morphed into something else. The first time I heard a female say “bite me” I was thinking, bite exactly what?
Different clothing, too. Greg and I use vastly different hues, ’cept for flesh tones.
MONTY is a brilliant strip. Difficult to color but worth the effort.
point taken – I’ll see if I can get any feedback. I know how deadline pressures affect ability to interact with audience, and this is a relentlessly demanding biz in that regard. Be well.
I think SCAM is a very harsh word, as if the plan was to deceive and fleece the crowd. I’ll make sure GnK see this thread and perhaps they can either directly or indirectly (through me) address your disappointment. BTW, how’s the crossword puzzle biz these days? Aren’t you a creator or an editor for those?
I’d like to come here more often, but it’s a rabbit hole and thus a time waster before I know it.
A few weeks ago I asked for questions to bring to Greg at the Reuben Awards Sept 6-8. We got plenty of time to talk business and fun, but I never got around to those questions. Karen is the new president of the National Cartoonists Society (a great match of skills to needs) after delivering big time as National Representative. The Nat Rep is the person who ties the 21 regional U.S.-based NCS chapters together. There are Canadian and UK chapters, too. Karen’s familiarity with the organization is a huge plus in her new role. And she’s excellent at organizing online meetings and keeping everything on schedule. Writing Luann remains a team effort, it’s not the clean handoff some people suggest: KAREN WRITE. GREG DRAW. Regarding the recurring questions about repeating timelines, this kind of comic strip must offer points of entry for new readers. This seems to befuddle some people who expect real time progression.These are trying times for all cartoonists who cut their teeth on the newsprint model which is still in decline. I color almost two dozen features across three syndicates. Luann outpaces all of them in online reader engagement and that is where comic strip careers will flourish or perish. So it is laughable to call the Gunth/Bets adventure novella a scam. Financially successful online strips offer extras to their base product. Ok, back to work, deadlines await. Cheers!
And that means decades of experience. In this business it’s a plus.
