Over at my Formspring page, a few people had come up with a recurring feature for, which i thought was brilliant. Someone had asked if i would ever do a comic strip version of my life and post it on this blog. The funny thing about this blog is that i never really go into what is going on with me personally. I usually just post reviews and a handful of dopey recurring features (ie: SDVDCOTW and Rich Fields).

I would love to do a comic strip version of funny or strange things that happen to me from week to week. American Splendor comes to mind. The problem with doing this is that i don’t think there is enough interesting things going on in my life to warrant a regular feature. This isn’t to say that i wouldn’t do one if something crazy did happen.

Today i had some free time and decided to draw myself. It is not the best drawing of me, but i find it really amusing. I do not know why i did my nose so big, but it made me laughed, so i left it.  If i do a cartoon of my mundane life, i probably wont have time to color it as i did here.  I think i would do either a simple pencil version, or do a straight up ink sketch version. It would be more simple.

Anyway, keep an eye on this page and maybe you will see some more cartoons of me being me.

    This is very good, the blue pants remind me of the Simpsons, not just the color but the way that it is drawn too. By the way mundaneity (is that a word?) creates the best comedy, in my opinion, the Life and Times of Tim come to mind.

    But Tim always gets into situations that are extraordinary. By the way Stu’ Beverly Hill Cop Shower and The Rich Little text message made me cry!!

    I think cartoon Ralph should fight crime…

    This is great. But why do you look so sad? My depiction of Ralph is always jolly and smiling. I think its a requirement that all ralph cartoons have a big grin. 🙂

    Love this Ralph. I hope you do more!

    Apparently i am just really unamused. We’ll see what happens in the future, but most of the funny stories i have to share are me being frustrated with morons. We’ll see how it goes.

    Cartoon Ralph should be more hairy.

    I don’t want to put lines all over it. It would look like a crappy Liefeld drawing.
