I made my friend Matt a birthday card the other day, it had a little comic strip on the front. It made me realise I often write little comic strips for birthday cards and at work and for fun sometimes.
I started doing it a little while ago after hanging out with some friends who had a comic collective called London Underground Comics (which I don’t think exists anymore the co-founders seem to be Modern Monstrosity now) and enjoyed everyone I met there having their little characters and story lines and their passion for the medium, so I started doodling every now and then.
I have no real talent for drawing, but I quite enjoy writing these little comic strips, especially little three-cell shorts, so I thought I might as well start recording them for posterity. I think I may have put some up here before that I once drew for Nedry‘s tour blog, the strip I made for Matt’s birthday was inspired by those.
Anyhow, I’ve made a new page in the above menu for them, Occasional Comics, where I can add some blurred mobile phone pictures of any I write in the future just in case anyone else out there might enjoy looking at them.
