Stupid Brain

Hi Everybody! 
Today's comic is brought to  you by the Pentel Pocket Brush pen which comes highly recommended by some of the finest cartoonists in the land (not the least of which is Xeric Award Winner, Sam Spina!). Given that my comics career is in its infancy, I'm still experimenting with style and content, so I don't mind posting my first attempt at using the brush pen. I found it difficult, but I'm determined to practice til I find a way to produce something I really like! I also need to figure out how to make my comics faster. Spending 3-5 hours per comic is too long, I think. Unless all you other cartoonists out there say you spend that much time on one comic, then, I guess, okay.
In other news, I went to the Northwest Comic Con in May and met some cool indie cartoonists that I will talk about here in the near future. It is summer, therefore there are a million things to do outside. Drawing comics is one of them, but sometimes takes a back seat to mowing the lawn, planting flowers, digging up crap in the yard. I am also the family taxi driver, so I have been spending a lot of my days driving people places. And finally, my hub, Phil is in Tanzania, Africa for two weeks. (See a video of the town where he is working and playing music.)

Thanks for reading my comics! 
Love, Robin
