Little Matt and Teddy have already decided to bravely head into next week. Ahead of them is, as always, a big blank canvas, and the hope that on the other side are five new comics that don’t exist yet.
Making a daily comic is hard. Thankfully I have some giant shoulders to stand on. Where would I be without A.A. Milne and E.H Shepard’s Christopher Robin and Pooh to guide me? Lost, like Piglet in the Hundred Acre Wood. Dr. Seuss and Charles Schultz – I am always looking back on your stuff for help. Thank you for guiding me, gentlemen. And as always, thanks to the Mister G Kids adjunct think-tank: Mike & Zan Olson.
See you on the other side, everyone! Next week, we’ll reflect on six months of Mister G Kids. And as always, thank you for coming back to enjoy it!
I made this short about 5 years ago. Weekend Kids is supposed to be relaxing for all of us, so instead of drawing something new today, I’m posting this old chestnut because I’ll bet most of you have never seen it. It counts as kid-related because these lovable Hundred Acre Woods characters are favorites with kids everywhere.
Some viewers outside of the US may not hear the soundtrack due to copyright issues on the music. In that case, just hum something catchy.
This is Part 4 of the Piglet Gets His Face Punched In series. I’ll post the sequel tomorrow. Part Six is in development. What happened to Parts 1-3? They are so obscure they almost don’t exist, so hipsters would love them.
It’s Epic Friday! These days can be for fantasy comics or child-like wish fulfillment. So today I wanted to draw a picture of something really cool – my childhood teddy bear growing giant and carrying me to school! (Actually this is a hybrid of my bear and my brother Mark’s bear. His bear had a round body like this, but stubby legs. My bear had long limbs, but a beat-up not-so-cute face. So I took the best of both bears.)
Yes, that is a Crayola Crayon sky! It’s a color called “robin’s egg blue” from the 120-pack. Back in my day, the alternatives to blue were cornflower and periwinkle, both of which sucked. Today’s kids: you are lucky!
Have a great weekend, everybody! See you tomorrow for Weekend Kids #5!
