Made From Scratch

Doing the comic strips is a bit of fun for me. I enjoy the process of creating something from scratch. First I start out with a basic idea for a character and I play around until I come up with something I like. Then I try to think up scenarios for them in the strips.

Of course, each of the strips has to have a punch line of sorts and I try to do them all within four frames. So it's usually three frames for the setup and the fourth frame is reserved for the punchline.

Sometimes I will have a continuing story that is going on and I have to try to do something within that framework while trying to deliver a punch line in the fourth frame. So there is a bit of a challenge at times but, like I said, I like doing it. But it all starts with a few ideas and then I make it all from scratch.

Meet the Piddler

There is a new villain in town and his name is the Piddler. the Piddler likes to do such dastardly deeds as peeing on innocent people from off of rooftops. fortunately, we have the team of superheroes we call the Dysfunctionals to help keep this guy and his shenanigans in check.

The Piddler first appeared in the comic strip number 111 but was first referred to in strip number 110.

Most villains or criminals in general are motivated by money, in that they rob people, or motivated by anger. This guy just likes to pee on people from rooftops. That's apparently how he gets his kicks. Who really knows what his motivations are but it's beyond my areas of expertise. After all, I am not a psychologist. I'm just the guy that does the comic strips. Below are the two comic strips I referred to above. Just click on them to view them at full size.

Super Crack Ho - Looking All Glamorous

Here we have Super Crack Ho hamming it up for the cameras. She really thinks she is hot. I guess it's all about attitude.

This is actually my first attempt at playing around with animating any of the Dysfunctionals characters. I plan on doing more of this in the future.

I recently started animating the other characters from the comic Strip. Right now I am only doing it to create animated gifs for my websites and blogs but I am contemplating using some animations for videos.

if you are interested in seeing some of my animated gifs, you can view a collection of them on my Pinterest board that I have created just for them. CLICK HERE to check them out.

Meet the Dysfunctionals

The Dysfunctionals is a new team of elite superheroes that appear in the Comic Strip. Although not all of the characters in the team have appeared in an officially released strip, they soon will be. By October 2015, all of the members will be introduced into the strip.

The comic strip provided with this blog post is one of the upcoming ones. Sorry to spoil the surprise. There will be a subsection within the website that will be accessible by logging on to

I have not yet begun to work on that section of the site but I can say that I will make a point of having it completed by the time of the official release of the comic strips that introduce them. Like I said, that will be in October of 2015. At this point, only Super Crack Ho has officially been introduced.

The comic strip to the left was the one where she first appeared.

There will also be a variety of villains that will be introduced as well. It should be fun.

Obviously, this comic strip is not intended to be viewed by kids. It features a lot of adult humor that I don't consider to be suitable for kids. I certainly don't expect the comic strip to be in the Sunday morning comic strip section of any newspaper.

The comic strip is also not very politically correct. I suspect I may offend some people here and there but, these days, it seems as if someone gets offended no matter what anyone says anymore. So I automatically assume I am going to anger someone and that, in itself, removes some of my worries. I just take it for granted that someone will get their panties in a bunch over it. Oh well, what can you do? You can't please everyone.
