Digression Session

In a recent article, I mentioned that I was doing some soul-searching, and instead of telling you what I intended to tell you, I veered off into theoretical metaphysics. Here’s the thing…Oddbox Comics is going bi-weekly. Even though making this blog is one of my most favorite things in the world, I need to tend to my financial survival.

Because of the demise of the quick-printing industry, I find myself getting poorer and poorer. I need to look into other avenues of revenue, which means… less time for this blog.

Therefore, I am hereby officially offering my art. Let me help you with a personalized birthday card or notepad. Perhaps a caricature of someone special. How about a personalized Facebook icon? Logo? Event? Whatever! I need money! Call me at 810-247-9520! Or e-mail me at oddboxcomics@att.net!

You may be asking yourself right now, “Why do I need Bob to make a drawing for me when I can just find what I need on the internet?” Seriously? Do you actually believe that you are going to find a drawing of your sister running a marathon on the planet Mars while carrying a wedding cake? Come on. Get real! Give me a call!

You also need art for…

…T-shirts…posters…mugs…magnets…advertisements…calendars…flyers…portraits…bumper stickers…banners…tattoos…business cards…murals…blogs…websites…invitations…wedding announcements…books…CD covers…envelopes…shot glasses…brochures…menus…whatever…etc.

Please help me make the transition from Printer to Artist. I appreciate whatever you can do to help. Whether you want me to draw something for you, or you just share this article with your friends…it is greatly appreciated!

Sincerely,

Bob

 

Frog Pad Animation

Some animation to show that the Variety Frog Pad has six different designs. I plan to put this in my Frog Pad page. Please visit now. Under “Pages” to the right, click “Frog Pad”. Buy a Frog Pad or two. This is the first time I have used the “tween” feature. I like it! However, I couldn’t figure out how to use that effect in between the Pac-Man Frog and the Poison-dart Frog. Compared to the other smooth transitions, it seems to clunk from one to the other.

The Fool in the Forest

Let us have a frank discussion about your intelligence. No…don’t be afraid. I have good news! If you are reading these comics, you have already passed the I.Q. Test with flying colors! For it has been found that those who enjoy comics are usually above average in intelligence. This is according to a recent study conducted somewhere, most likely.

And, since you are so smart, wrap your head around this: I can safely say the phrase, “Anybody who doesn’t like comics, or is not reading this article is an utter fool”. Nobody can be offended because at the very moment you read that phrase, you are instantly rendered non-foolish. It reminds me of the sound in the forest conundrum, “If a tree falls in the forest and no one is around to hear it, does it make a sound?” Now consider…”If an utter fool is insulted in an article that the utter fool didn’t read, is the utter fool still insulted?”

I assume that you are one smart cookie, so I know that you won’t tell any utter fools about this article. And even if you did, and they read it, then they too will have been rendered non-foolish. It seems that I have inadvertently stumbled upon a philosophical loophole.
