My apologies if the artwork in today’s comic is somewhat lacking. I was a bit distracted last night. Y’know… watching history.

The way Tom looks in the first panel is a pretty accurate representation of how I feel this morning. I was pretty much glued to coverage all last night and it was exhausting. If I don’t see another hologram of from The Black Eyed Peas, it’ll be too soon. Good work, relevant journalism!

I knew that today’s comic had to address this historic election in some way, but I was cautious not to have it lean one way or the other. That’s why Tom has his priorities straight. He’s more concerned with the new movies coming out this weekend!

Incidentally, it’s a tough decision. On the one hand, Madacascar 2 is soft on terror. But Role Models made a poor decision with it’s choice of running mate, Sean Williams Scott.

I kid, I kid…

Truth be told, I’ll probably see Role Models this weekend, but the trailers don’t look encouraging to me. I like Sean Williams Scott as an actor. You can tell he’s working hard and he does what he can. But the dude is a bad script magnet. I’ll be seeing this movie for one reason and one reason only – to nurture my man-crush on Paul Rudd.

Recently, though, I learned that Role Models was directed and partially written by David Wain. If you don’t recognize his name, you should. I know I’ve talked about MTV’s The State before and he was a member of that groundbreaking comedy group. Need another clue? He wrote and directed Wet, Hot American Summer. So there you go.

The only downside? The film has 5 other people credited with the script and typically script-by-committee movies are never good. Especially with comedies. Too many cooks spoil the broth.

Not much else to talk about today, but I thought you guys might get a kick out of another completed sketch for the Donation Drive:

Sketch Card, Questionable Content, Marten

Today’s sketch was for a fan who mistakenly requested “a picture of the cast sitting around the coffee house with the usual funny signs in the background.” She had accidentally confused Theater Hopper with Questionable Content! Hey, I’m not complaining! I’ll take that comparison ANY day.

It was a slip of the tongue on her part and when I asked her about it, she admitted the gaffe and told me to draw whatever I wanted. I decided to have a little fun with it and do a sketch with Marten from QC and Tom just hanging out. I don’t draw other artist’s characters nearly enough. It was a fun little exercise. I should get off my can and draw more guest strips…

At any rate, that sketch will be dropped in the mail soon. I’m steadily gaining traction on completing more and more original art. I should have all of the sketch card requests completed soon. After that, I’ll be moving up to the 8 x 10" large scale drawings. Keep your eyes peeled for more in the future.

Have a great day, everyone!

Dude, you look terrible! What happened to you?

Oh, nothing. I just spent most of yesterday weight a very important decision.

The election?

“The election?!”

What? NO!

I was trying to decide if I was going to see Madagascar 2 or Role Models this weekend!
