WHY PAY FOR TV?

Those screen shots look fantastic! It would've been cool to watch the season premiere of Lost on that t.v. screen.

Karen the Blogger!!

These photos were taken on a small television set that sat on a cardboard box that sat on a chair at least two years ago in Chicago. I used to watch the Charlie Rose rebroadcast at night to take a break from drawing in the other room. On this particular night, the picture wasn't just not coming in, but coming in in this weird way that revealed all these way-cool color combinations and textures. These images are only slightly manipulated using Photoshop... in fact, that night they looked even better than what you see here!

PS: This post owes something of a debt to Hergé and the Tintin story The Castafiore Emerald, which has about two entire pages of similar visuals and sound effects. The major difference is that the Tintin pages are superior in every way.

ROTFL!

Oh, man, thanks for the lunchtime laugh! That was just brilliantly absurd.

I want to hire you to letter my next comic

Bonkers: Thanks for stopping by. If you think this is absurd, you'd better check back!

David: I have one of those little plastic lettering guides somewhere... you know, with the little holes along either side? I never figured out how to use it, though. For my own lettering, I employ the use of a pinhole camera and a generous helping of deep-rooted anxiety.
