650: Foolish and Stupid Goals (Bunnies and Epictetus)

I was reading up on various stoic philosophers, because I wanted to create a comic starring Boot. Looking up stoic philosophers seemed like a good place to get inspiration for Boot. I didn’t expect Bunson Hoppydew to be the one that got inspired by stoic philosophers. Though it must be said, our Bunson is very very good at being in the present and he does try to lead a good life. I reckon stoics would approve of Bunson, especially some of the more funtimes stoics like Epicurus. Transcript: If you want to improve, be content to be thought foolish and stupid – Epictetus Bunson looks up. Bunson: ok! Bunson pulls a series of foolish faces and gestures, sticking his tongue out and rolling on his back.   Thanks to all my patrons and a special big extra thanks to Kate Webb, Erik Owomoyela and Sandra M.

649: Build Castles in the Air

I got this quote from the most excellent David LaMotte, a truly amazing musician, speaker, and activist. If you like nourishing food for the soul, there’s a good chance you’ll like his stuff. Transcript If you have built castles in the air your work need not be lost. That is where they should be. Now put foundations under them. –  Henry David Thoreau   Thanks to all my patrons and a special big extra thanks to Kate Webb, Erik Owomoyela and Sandra M. Odell.

Art from the Heart, Abstract Interlude

As part of my Art from the Heart presentation at Orycon Creation Station’s OR e-con, I ran folks, including myself, through a new exercise. I was wondering if the prompts could help create interesting stuff that could help bring the weird to comics. It was cool to see what folks did, creating visualizations of different things or creating a lovely narrative across four panels.

This is what I created… and I think it will help bring some weird to the Things! Stay tuned!
