At first, I really didn’t want to do anything here relate to the missing MH370 flight, after all, I know this is a comic site. So many tasteless jokes have circulated around the web, many of them by Malaysians who don’t know better. In the end, I’d thought I’d do something in the spirit of what I think feels honest, above all the conspiracy theories and the unexplained mysteries surrounding the tragedy.
I don’t want to say much on this, only that my heart hopes that things turn out for the best for the people on the plane, along with my fellow countrymen. All we can do is pray, I guess…
Well, I’ve tried signing up for Google’s Adsense and they rejected me. A friend of mine, Jacques tells me that one of the criteria is content, especially text, and that sucks, since mine is mostly visual. So I’m trying this. Typing ladidadidas… accompanied with today’s cartoon. Okay, so here are some thoughts for me today. I’ve decided I’m gonna try and go ahead with my plan for World Domination, starting with Germany since tickets are the cheapest. The plan is to update my site regularly with cartoons and gags about my travels, and see my friends become envious of my exploits. But nana… not with selfie foreign-country photos boasting of ‘I’ve seen this, done that’s, (well, maybe a little if something’s really spectacular!) but more of my drawings. So what I’m going to do is to make my site more like a travel journal, along with a cartoon of the day.
I think that’s a rad idea. Another rad idea is to start up a story anthology book series of my random stories that I keep coming up in my head at random, especially when I’m a little inebriated or having a severe lack of sleep that I’m delirious. I’ve already penned in a few story ideas, about a reindeer galavanting around the world on a flying bathtub, a friendship between a pencil and a mechanical pencil, about a lonely lamppost who’s envious of other lampposts that have hooked up with each other, an anthropomorphized “market” who decides to commit suicide… among others. Possibly a kickstarter project, yes… Okay. Fun times. Sell my stuff, say my goodbyes, begin my adventures in a foreign country. Yup. It’s overdue. Malaysia’s too small a place for me to stay here for the rest of my life. I’ll miss my friends, family, sessions of Magic the Gathering and boardgames, food, and my awesome bachelor’s pad, but I need this. I’ll do this. Deadline August. Here we go!
Anyway, as promised, here’s a comic for you blokes going through tough times out there. Hang in there, and smile!
A quickie drawing of something I find I do a little too often.
A sequel to one of my strips found here.
