One of my favorite comic strips of all time is Bob the Dog which ran forever in the University of Puget Sound newspaper (to my understanding). I first became aware of it listening to "The Melon" Electric Elliot & Chris 'the wedge' Van Vechten's student radio show on KUPS while working in the HFW workshop.   The Melon was the greatest show to ever run on KUPS (along side the campy/kids record lobster guy).  These are truly the DARK TIMES for KUPS radio.  None of the kids do talk radio... only play really ethereal Japanese sound-scapes  or really bad rap music.  Yet I digress...  at one point Electric Elliot had printed his best strips for the first CLAW art show at Tacoma Art Supply... but here are some of my favorites (that I could find using the bare-bones archive system he has set up right now on BOB THE DOG COMICS DOT COM)..  GAY ZOMBIES, Todd the Ghost...  had real abstract cast of characters: Broken Bottle, Fried Egg, Chicken, Ant... is really painful thinking about it, so goddamn brilliant.

RR, I can't express the gratitude I hold for you kind words and inclusion of Bob the Dog in your work.

I made a post about you on my blog discussing some of my "human emotions" towards your constant support of my work.

You know, sooner or later, you're going to get me to pick up the pencil again. It will be a sunny day.
