What are YOUR top picks for a GIF epitaph?
(P.S. please no fighting over the pronunciation of 'GIF'. But in case you didn't know, the only correct answer rhymes with 'knife'.)




This is a real song I wrote in 2008, and it remains one of Crustacean Baby's favorites.



Quite alike


I used this one a few years ago for Remake Monday, where I redid it with more current art and more legible lettering. I often improve the phrasing on RM comics, but I think I got it right the first time with this one.


Piracy and the arts


the Floating Head of Salvador Dalí has important ideas that cannot wait around for the convenience of your precious sleep patterns


What the hands are doing


By special request, one that managed to spread pretty far when originally posted. 
Many people took the time to point out to me versions of it that had already been done. I will at least say for myself that as far as I could see, everyone else had the hands turning into the hands of Satan, but since I would draw Satan with little '3'-like squiggles, I had the hands turn into each into a little Satan. So. That's a much funnier joke.



That way you have it

(NB: I used to do this thing where only one participant in a dialogue got speech bubbles, because I was tired of drawing an entire comic of nominally acceptable quality and then screwing it up at the last moment with an ill-formed speech bubble. The bubbleless words are being said by the figure on the left.)

Basement thoughts


This one's not technically a re-run, unless I showed you this at school back then. I was just starting to realize I wasn't too cool for poetry, but I was also watching Salad Fingers more than is probably good for a person.





This one was actually relatively legible for the time, if you can believe it. I used to spend a lot of time on concepts and then lose patience with the process of turning my ideas into, you know, actual comics.


A talking dog


This one's from right before I started figuring out how to make my own handwriting fonts. But how about that dog? I spent way too long on that dog.


Just ask


Let me tell you all about it.

By the way, the CrustaceanSalutations merch shop on Zazzle has two versions of this shirt available for purchase. I haven't had the opportunity to test them myself, because my wardrobe is entirely made of burlap sacks (and one old barrel with suspenders, for when I'm feeling fancy), but there's probably nothing wrong with them.


On inspiration


I don't always agree with the Floating Head of Salvador Dalí, but I really think he's onto something here. I'm trying to keep this advice in mind as I spend this month trying to work on less structured creative stuff.
