Loyalty vs Reason


This page did not want to play nice at all, but onwards and upwards and all that. However, I enjoy Wesson’s obnoxiously high smug levels in it, so it’s not a complete wash out.

Tried out a different kind of brush on the bottom panel’s background, one I think I’ll carry on with but is taking some getting used to.

Meanwhile, Jack’s computer is still on fire, and on top of this, while at a murder mystery party he kind of fell down a ditch and ruined his ankle. Someone send some luck his way, please? He’s obviously lost his somewhere.

(Said party also gave me an excuse to dress as a mobster for an evening and now I own a most excellent pinstripe trilby. So as things go, I’ve been doing all right. Knock on wood.)

Have fun, you lot.

I have to say, though it’s corny and a bit bizarre, the Orpheus and Eurydice line is my favourite piece of writing on this to date. ┬áI’m not sure what that says about the rest of my writing.

I enjoy the expressions in this one a lot, especially Wesson’s EPIC SMUG and Chauchat’s EPIC CROSS.

On other notes, I have been for an x-ray and there is no immediate collossal break in my foot bones, but a specialist will have a looksie for fractures.  Imagine my joy.

Stay safe, watch out for holes my lovelies.

PS I have a baby griffin and I’m not afraid to use it!

    Hi MJ. Your friend (and my next door neighbour and recent friend) Matthew referred me to this page after a discussion about the best artists/illustrators we know. Might I say I’m very glad he did – and he was right. You’re an EXCELLENT artist. I’m hooked on MG & GL now. Particularly like your switching between Greyscale (Bluescale? There’s quite a bit of blue in some…) and Sepia tones to change the mood/ differentiate between night and day (at least I’m guessing it’s intentional) also loving the mouseover text on each – question: did you copy XKCD or did they copy you? ;)

    Great writing also (although I don’t know how much of that is credited to Calico Jacque and how much is credited to you). Very few webcomics make me literally LOL and this one did in several places.

    Also grateful because through visiting your site I discovered “The Meek”

    Thanks. Yeah, the colour scheme is intentional. It’s kinda colour coded. :)

    On the mouseover, XKCD has been going rather longer than us, and quite a few comics I like use alt text for extra gags. Jack gives me so much WessonRamble it seems a shame to waste it so AltText to the rescue!

    As for the writing, it’s a mix. We plan the story and designed a lot of the characters together, then the script gets started by Jack, I edit it and then draw and letter the final comics.

    Glad it makes you laugh, we have a lot of fun with it.

    I like to think I earn my bread where the writing’s concerned. The nice thing about comics is that the art and the words work together to make the story, individually they’re nice and pretty good, but they become special when they’re put together.
    Wessonramble is the best kind of ramble. It involves wearing a fedora.

    I write myself. At some point I would like to copywrite for a comic. I certainly have a bundle of ideas floating around in my attention-deficit creativity-surplus head.

    ADHD don’t you know – my entire life consists of deciding when to avoid the “Scattergun! Do EVERYTHING!” approach and when to run with it.

    It also causes me to share personal things with random strangers on a regular basis (although you two don’t count as you are, respectively, a friend of a friend and a friend of a friend of a friend and therefore not strangers at all).

    Hm. New phrase. CSEA – Creativity Surplus Energy Advantaged. Let’s major on the positives for once…

    And now I will stop randomly rambling on your blog and go for a walk.

    Oh – and anything that involves wearing a stylish hat is a good thing (although I’ve learned through bad tassle entanglement that a fez should only be worn indoors)

    Feel free to delete one of those – I got all clicky-clicky impatient…
