Worst Day, Best Day, what’s the diff?

Hi Gang,
I’m glad you like this strip, I actually did a version of this a very long time ago. So long ago that I had completely forgotten about it. I think it might have been way back when I was on Comics Sherpa, before GoComics. I never reran it because I remember getting one bad comment on it so I didn’t want anyone to see it. I don’t even remember what it said but it hurt me and I couldn’t rerun it so I completely forgot about it. Then something happened and triggered the memory a few days ago so I completely reblocked and redrew it and there ya’ go. See how crummy comments can hurt a strip? I like this and I wish I could think of more strips like this. Hopefully in future I can.

Anyway, in other news, my knee continues to heal. I am getting better, although it seems that every time I go to physical therapy I strain it and I get set back a few weeks. I’m at that point where the pain is just SUCH a freaking’ nuisance. But it’s a hump I have to get over and I can be patient. I’m only using my cane about 40% of the time now so that is encouraging. But I really do love that cane. I like pointing at stuff with it and turning out the lights to my office with it. It’s cool like that.

Work: If you guys want to keep following my work outside of MythTickle, you can buy the monthly Peanuts comic books that are published by KABOOM! comics. I always do something in every issue, lately I’ve been inking and coloring. I rearrange the old Schulz Sunday strips into a vertical format (not an easy thing to do since they were designed to be seen horizontally and so obviously the frames don’t always line up) and that is a fun and challenging task. Always a bit of a puzzle, really. There are usually three of those per issue and I always do the reformatting on all and usually color about 2 of them. I will likely be traveling back to Japan again in mid April on Peanuts business, I’ll keep you all posted on that.

So that’s about it for the progress report, if there are any questions feel free to ask, I’l answer them.
Cheers!
