Weekend Kids #8: Teddy Time Warp

Some folks have responded well to the character of Teddy, found sprinkled throughout my comics over the years, most recently here and here.  I just thought you might find it cool that Teddy is a stock comic character who’s been with me for over 20 years.
This is a drawing I made in 1991 (you can see the date and an early form of a signature I was trying out on the far right).  This version of Teddy is my brother Mark’s bear – the very fat body with the tiny feet that always made me laugh because he’s so cute and wouldn’t be able to walk if he tried.  Here you can see Teddy doing all sorts of fun things.  Yes, there is even a Hitler teddy in there trying to bring the party down, but that’s not gonna’ happen! Too many Teddies having a good time!
The other cute thing about this Teddy is that he doesn’t have a mouth, so it gives him a profound mime-like quality, like an Emmett Kelly clown, or Mr. Bean.  This is another thing that makes him interesting to draw and put into situations.  Even without a mouth, he can be very expressive, but always observant and interested.

Puppy or Princess?


The first weekend of Weekend Kids went smoothly – it was just a fun little stopover for anyone passing by, and it was relaxing for me to post something simple for a couple of days.  Thanks for checking it out!
Now it’s back to your regularly scheduled Mister G Kids, today en Español and featuring another piece of real kid artwork, like I did in Ninjas!

Epic Friday: Unicorn Rainbow Princess

Introducing “Epic Friday!” From now on, most Fridays are going to be about having crazy fun with my comics, allowing myself to play it a little more loosely than the rest of the week.
This one is mixed media with a real kid drawing in the background!
