When I wrote "Nico" what I really meant was "Neko" (thanks Todd!) I suppose what i'm trying to say is that mistakes were made.

That's a fun one.

I see you have gone from attempting to convey the meaning of the cartoon from a subtly to browbeating the reader over the head (a bit) with it. A necessary change I am afraid for your readers to "get it." Yet, I am going to guess it caused you some pain.

The angle of the table and font gave the drawing some class.

Question : as you progressed from item to item, were you tempted to end with an edgy almost over the edge item to end the list with a bang?

(Looks like you are going to have quite a collection at your art show.)

Howdy Erik,
This is a rare instance of browbeating.

The items came to me in a stream of consciousness... also they had to be quick one liners on account of me running out of room on the paper. I think the funnier items also happen to be the subtler items (goatee). They make a quirky contrast to the more predictable "filler" items... like the condos and to some degree the eye.

I also had fun drawing the Urn... that was my Edward Gorey tribute.

The only item that was drawn out of hatred was the bottled Aroma demon. I believe this is justified. Any reasonable person SHOULD be furious when his/her atmosphere tastes like ass.

This is fun eh? Like the director's commentary on a DVD or something!

I do enjoy the commentary. Anyone else have a question for the Tacomic artist?
