Back on track

I just finished page 70 of the Angora Napkin book so I'm back on track and even slightly on top of my quota for once! I had a nasty bummed out month back in May but I managed to pick up the slack.

I picked up Fantagraphics excellent collection of E.C. Segar's Thimble Theatre strips entitled: "Popeye - I Yam What I Yam" which I am thoroughly enjoying. It's got me all wound up to get the 4 DVD set of Fleischer's "Popeye the Sailor: 1933-1938, Vol. 1" cartoons.

My friend Dave Cooper has uploaded a nice Flicker set of his painting process you really should check out. I remember visiting his studio in Ottawa and just being floored by the scale of some of these paintings, really inspirational stuff!

Congrats on getting back on track Troy! I am loving Angora Napkin!!! I love that crazy style and fun storytelling..it is invigourating and most of all FUN! Thanks for posting the link to Dave Cooper; when I was freaking out and clawing my eyes and the last of my hair from my head yesterday, I spent some harried minutes enjoying Cooper's flashing fleshy girls flow by...MMmmmm!!! Thanks dude. I'd call you now, but my address book is upstairs :-P Will call l8r.. ;-)

I just found your blog. I love your stuff.
I really like the way you shaded your comic.
And the general style.

Next time you see Dave tell him he's cool too.
