I began Those Poetix as a sabbatical experiment, to see if I could sustain an editorial cartoon with "old school" production value of bristol board, pen, brush, gray markers...inspired by Pogo and Krazy Kat, by the Marx Brothers and Calvin & Hobbes, by Bloom County and Doonesbury: in short, the comix I grew up loving.
But about school. Because I have a full-time teaching job I love, and I want to explore that culture in a way that you might find fun and interesting.
This is the first day of setting up, and I have dozens of Those Poetix strips to share with you!
As with any workout program, it's good to set a realistic goal: a fresh strip every 2 weeks seems right. Onward.
