It's 12:45 AM & I can't think of a title. Illustration Friday, baby!



The Illustration Friday word of the week is METROPOLITAN.

You all know the drill... my entry can be found at my web-comic here. You please clickie on #13. Thank you oh so much. It is almost 1am, & I have to get up at 5. So do me a favor and check out the damn thing. OK, it's my fault I didn't get it done sooner, but I have a life too, you know! EESH!

I'm so looking forward to reading part 2. Great job capturing the feel of hard-boiled detective novels and film noir, then warping it to match your own unique view! *G*

Tony, you are amazing! The way you just knock out a top piece of underground comic stuff knocks me out.

but I have a life too, you know!

That's no excuse... no, wait a minute, yes it is! :)

I love the noirish feel of this piece - very Metropolitan and it made me LOL, which is no mean feat :).

Hi Tony, THis week's is my favorite so far, Aravisarwen is right you really mixed the film noir with your weird and wacky style. ( Weird and wacky in a good way) I like the drawing, the story line and the whole thing. I'm really looking forward to the next strip. ( comic strip, not the naked city strip.) It's a great underground comic and I'm super glad that you are posting it to IF because it is wonderfully fun.

To be honest, this was probably influenced by the Firesign Theater's classic "The Further Adventures of Nick Danger" on the album "How can you be in two places at once when you're not anywhere at all?" (You can get it on I-tunes for $12. It's worth it.)

Thank you all so much for your comments & affirmations- they're great pick-me-ups. I switched from my Palm to a Pocket PC, so I'm getting used to the new drawing program. I love bigger pictures too, unfortunately they make bigger file-sized comics (It's time I got some real ftp space!)

I can't wait for tomorrow's word, to make it fit into the story line (assuming there is one ;)

That darn Illustration Friday, advertising all over the place. These commercials are overwhelming. Webby needs to move to the country where it's less likely to attract war fallout.
Herez lookin at you, duck...
