*I changed the name to what I initially came up with. I feel it fits better, and I don't think I have to worry about copywrite violations with song names. I think.

Material (World) Girl - This is the first installment of a four panel I've been working on. I have two more finished after this and hope to keep on going till the story's end. I'll post 'em every Saturday and Wednesday.

Inspiration - Bill Waterson. Among many others I am a Calvin n' Hobbes fan. While browsing Homicidal Psycho Jungle Cat I came up with an idea for a story arc. And here we are.

etc - The third panel breaks my heart.
The poink makes me smile.

Medium: Pencil and Paper
Time: Three hours+

yes you inspire, been bouncing around your gallery running from one room to the next, i love your style and i am so filled with creative ideas when i look at your work. Sigh... i have been doing art professionally but never believed i could do anything like a strip, they are hard to sell and there is always so much pressure and politics. I was in Saturday Morning cartoon animation, been on many famous cartoon shows but now they are gone and the work is dried up in my country, many directors and friends out of work. I am an executive assistant in an oil company and while it pays the bills i am not satisfied, i am not doing entertaining fun art cartoons so i am so unfulfilled. I do art for the pleasures of my fans on Deviant Art but a strip oh that would be heaven. You make it look so easy hon. can i rub your head and get some karma juice? your chaacters are so sweet

I have to say this is a very well thought out story, every well exicuted, art style 100% fitted the story and 4 panel layout. One of the best web comic I have ever read if not the best. I am totally going to have to keep an eye one you!

Your art style in this comic is truly awesome. I might have to do some studies on your stuff!
