The Return of Stickman #1498

A few weeks ago I was with Mark Brill and Travis Bundy at the Tacoma Public Library doing a presentation on how to do comics. While the others were talking I was drawing up the cartoon to show to the audience. I wanted to comment on how sometimes that artist of a strip was often perceived as the main character of a strip, and how an artist would often get flack from their readers if the main character would say or do something different than the artist would in real life. But then I remembered we our focus was on comic books and not comic strips. I also drew another strip based on this one which I did show to the class. You will get to see that one on Monday
