Appetizing aesthetics


I just want to say that "Make your art and eat it too" sounds like a slogan that a far more successful version of me would be paid six figures to come up with for a gigantic corporation that makes sugar-filled modeling clay or something. ...By which I mean
1) I think it's a pretty good turn of phrase,
and 2) I'm extremely bitter about seeing so many people with unmerited success whose work I could probably do better than them, but which I will never get the chance to prove because of my Functionally Unemployable Disabilities™.
Rant over.

Solar sadness

It looked like this:


In my defense, I didn't own a scanner and often had to take pictures of my drawings on my phone. Still, though.

In theory, perhaps



It's a difficult field of study, one seldom appreciated by the layperson.

[Posted later in the day than usual because I did the thing again where I couldn't sleep at all last night and then crashed before I could come up with a comic and post it. Which is probably for the best.]

Packaged percussion


The subject of today's Remake Monday was first posted on 05 May 2015.

From the original, some additional prose:
'Boxerton: the Band' started with a groundbreaking concept: what if, instead of hitting drums, we hit cardboard boxes? Cardboard boxes also make sounds when you hit them, and also they are much cheaper than a drum kit. This line of reasoning was so simple that Steev (sic) the lead drummer was absolutely baffled that no one else was doing it.

Birds in hands


Another lesson it teaches is to be like the bird: if someone is intruding on your personal boundaries, bodily fluids are an excellent deterrent.

Made for each other


[Text for e-readers and the like:
  At first, they could only regard each other in disbelief: he with his overbite and she with her underbite, each suddenly feeling a lifetime's insecurities and frustrations melt & evaporate & disappear.
  They shared a prognathic correspondence so exact that normal-biters would never understand the perfection attained each time they kissed. So this was what it meant to have a soul mate.]

At first, they only regarded each other in disbelief, he with his overbite and she with her underbite, each feeling a lifetime's insecurities and frustrations simply dissipate into nothing. So this was what it meant to have a soul mate. And when words failed them on that first occasion, they fell into a passionate embrace. From then on, they shared a prognathic correspondence so exact that normal-biters would never understand the perfection attained each time they kissed.

Maybe, just maybe


I think I might've had a few too many Cruel Ranch™ snacks the other day. I better just get it out of my system.

Exsanguinated exigencies


I have a vague recollection of hearing someone use the first character's lines in a real-life rant, although it might be one of those invented memories.

The science factory


When I was a kid, almost all the things I wanted to do when I grew up involved science of one kind or another. I did not yet understand that this would require what is commonly known as an 'attention span'.
(I don't think kid-Andrew ever employed the term 'science factory', though, because 'laboratory' was so much fun to say.)

Considerable consolation


You might think this a small consolation, but you'd be severely underestimating the intensity of my feelings about this chair.
