Here is some sound advise for cartoonists writing a comic strip or developing a script for an animated series. A good storyteller knows when to stop babbling. The joke above in today’s comic strip pretty much plays itself out within a few minutes. No one cares about Charmy’s nose. I do like to bring it up from time to time in my comic strip, but in quick references. You have to be able to laugh at yourself and I expect my characters in my comic strip to be able to laugh at themselves as well. It is also great to remind the readers that my comic strip’s characters are not perfect. Establishing faults in my cast actually helps the readers find a deeper connection by relating through their own faults… which I hope we can all laugh at together and accept that we are who we are. There are no real faults… only character definitions. Believe me, if you ever meet me, you will know that I am FULL of character definitions… lol.Keep reading

Writing a comic strip is so tough. As you have seen from the history of my comic strip, Charmy’s Army introduces a lot of characters and alter egos sporadically. I should have been a character designer. I have a ton of ideas for different characters in my brain every day. The complication for these ideas revolves around legality. Some amazing names have come out of my head that were huge infringements on the copyrights of others. Before running with any of my ideas, research is required. I have shot down so many amazing ideas because of legal conflicts with the copyrights of otherKeep reading
What a great weekend!!! Thank you all for coming out to Eastern Rim Comic Con. Everyone continues to buy up all of my original sketch card art. I cannot tell youb all how much that means to me.

Today’s comic strip pretty much ends here. There is no “rest of the story”. If I had to expand on the strip a bit, I guess I could bring in some additional silliness….Keep reading
I love the colors in today’s comic strip. I want to get a few Gooser Dadburn comic books produced soon, but I am waiting for the perfect story to hit me. A western will be a hard sell unless I can come across something really cool. I am sure my brain can come up with something. As I wait, I am creating a wild supporting cast for this series.Keep reading
…And now the rest of the story! “I’ll have you know that I have suffered from rejection many times!”, interjects Charmy. “I once craved a chocolate milk shake and the fast food joint was out of chocolate. I had to settle for a vanilla milk shake”. “I would love to have an option to settle…Keep reading
