Tumblr contest!

Tue, 07/26/2011 - 15:37 by Ananth in response to cat ice tray

Moments of delirium doing the heatwave. Did this happen? Didn't it? Who knows. 

Yuko's running a contest over on Tumblr! She's giving away a $20 gift certificate to Hey Chickadee!, details here

We are chugging along! It's much cooler now, so work on Volume 2 continues in earnest. See you Thursday!

What's that thing that's puckering off him?

That's chest fur! It's what happens when you've got multiple 'grains' (direction of the growth of hair) meeting in one place. Almost any reasonably long-haired four-legged fuzzball has it, and a lot of artists working in a relatively simple style will add just a few jagged poke-out bits there to 'indicate' fur.

It's also why kids with inch-long or so hair often get an 'Alfalfa' effect at the top back of their head (where bald spots/thinning generally starts at middle-age). People-hair grows in a relatively circular pattern, and when it meets in the center, you get a natural spiking effect.

You just referenced the Little Rascals

And that makes you cool.

NYAN!

You should have mixed in a Poptart and some Kool Aid to make a rainbow. And then yell out, "Gentlemen, BEHOLD, I give you Nyan Cat!"

OMG

Best. Idea. EVER. It seems your heat waves induce genius. Damn you Southern Hemisphere winter!

this could happen! I swear

this could happen! I swear you keep channeling my cats. (I have 3 black ones, 2 tuxedos, and 2 tabbies. The black ones act a lot like Rook, and one of the tuxedos is terrified of almost everything, like Gonta)

Catsitting tips

Comment by Alain (not verified) Tue, 07/26/2011 - 23:19

Thank you so much. If I ever have to do catsitting one day and the air conditioner fails during a heat wave I will know exactly what to do with the poor hot kitty.

Of course, I'll have to prepare for this by going over to a pet shop and buying a big cat mold, just in case. I suppose they have a lot in stock by now.

A surrealistic twist for Johnny Wander, haha. Here in GA it was 98 degrees today, and I was driving in my car with its all black interior. Ack!

Drôle et rafraichissant, comme d'habitude!

Hi here!

Just to say thank you, I discovered Johnny Wander yesterday and it's a really nice work^^ I found it cool, fun, refreshing and I love the style of Yuko! (I started by AG 3.0 last week who is one of the best things I have read and absolutely wanted to continue discovering the work of ananth...Man, you're awesome!)

Thank you for Johnny Wander, I'm addicted now^^

I wish the best for you, and I'll continue to laugh like a pingouin behind my screen ^^

And sorry for my language and my repetitions, I'm french (living in france of course)....it's hard to write in english without practice^^ But I understand 80% of your jokes!

Congratulations, you've got a new french fan! (don't know if it's a good new, anyway...ok sorry)

More jokes with cats, the best for all of you and bon baisers de france, vous êtes les meilleurs! Bonne continuation^^

When my girlfriend was

When my girlfriend was little she drew a comic very similar to this, only she put her cat into a bowl. X3

Why are you wearing socks, Yuko.

Comment by Anonymous (not verified) Wed, 07/27/2011 - 07:40

Why.

Not socks.

Comment by Kino (not verified) Wed, 07/27/2011 - 19:49

Nah, you can see her toes in the second panel. I think they're 3/4 length pants.

I keep coming back to this one today and giggling like a mad thing. Lovely work!

Heat waves melt cats!!

Comment by River (not verified) Tue, 08/02/2011 - 11:34

I've never left a comment before, but this time I have to! I'm in Boston, and I've had similar sentiments this summer. I mean, it's definitely been hot enough here to melt cats. @___@ To clarify, I'm going to be a huge dork and reference my own webcomic (this is super-super embarrassing on so many levels, so I apologize, hahaha): http://paperstars.firefly-garden.com/2011/07/people-can-see-through-that...

Anyway, it's kinda funny that we thought of the same thing. >u< I feel oddly embarrassed and unworthy. xD;;

Poor melting kitties. ):

I'm expanding some lettuce

Comment by Verda Maestri (not verified) Mon, 04/30/2012 - 04:31

I'm expanding some lettuce in my garage (aquaponics set up), and there are aphids on them.. I want to get ladybugs, but I'm fearful that soon after these are carried out with the aphids, they may try to eat the lettuce.. then I've a much bigger problem. Should really I be worried?.

Hi there outstanding blog!

Comment by Rafael (not verified) Thu, 06/14/2012 - 15:13

Hi there outstanding blog! Does running a blog similar to this require a massive amount work? I've no expertise in computer programming but I was hoping to start my own blog in the near future. Anyway, if you have any ideas or techniques for new blog owners please share. I know this is off subject however I simply wanted to ask. Thanks a lot! fine art collection
