Trippin' Tuesdays...

Hopping, hopping, hopping MAD!! P'd OFF!! MADDER than Dennis Hopper!!
What happened you may ask? Well, the new Madam & Eve book with the spiffy new cover arrives from the printer, the printing looks fab, the colours most excellent and then...AAARRRRRRRGH!!... I notice that the top edges of the back cover of a whole bunch of the books is shredded -- like a blunt cutting machine was used to trim the book.

On the blower to the printers -- crap on the printer -- they'll crap on the factory -- and wait to see how they will fix all this. CRAP! CRAP! What a waste!

Ok, todat no sketch or doodles -- above bit of pro work instead... a sample of an inhouse corporate cartoon strip I do for Multichoice Africa... actually great fun ceating those characters...

Geez, you gotta love that. Like you're not gonna notice the dodgy cutting, or the miff registration in the back. or the smudged bits in the front!

Printers are the anti-Christ(s)!

Hay Jason my dad's a printer!!! :D

But I wholeheartedly agree, printers provide with the experience that can only be described as having 20 mechanics working on your cars service at once. It's a difficult game printing, very difficult.

Man, whackness.

Looking good though. Maybe they included the tears as part of the Pirates of the Caribbean theme, like you know how an old treasure map gets the sides all frayed...My guess is not, though. New strip looks kiff.
