Oh man!Sam and Fuzzy Q & A: Upside Down Edition
Got a question you want answered? Just drop me an email with "Q & A" in the subject line!
"When you had Sam, Fuzzy, and Walter Banner hanging upside down, did you have to turn the page upside down to draw their faces? Or is it
easy for you to draw upside down faces and expressions?" -David
I was wondering if anyone would ask this!
I absolutely had to turn the page upside down. I briefly tried drawing them with the paper the right way around, but it was completely maddening... like trying to draw with your opposite hand, or with oven mitts on, or while being eaten by a bear.
"I came across the idea of "Women in Refigerators" recently, and wondered if this comic was deliberately a reference to it?" -Simon
Afraid not! I'm certainly familiar with Women in Refrigerators Syndrome now, but I probably wasn't at the time I drew that comic. But if I was, I bet I could have got a lot more mileage out of that storyline!
"Is the line 'stupid stupid fig pig' an intentional reference to 'stupid stupid rat creatures' from Bone?" -James
OK, I'll give you that one! I almost never slip quotes into my dialouge -- honest -- but Bone is one of my favourite comics, and the line fit so perfectly with Sam's gradual collapse into babbling that it was impossible to resist.
That's a wrap for this week! See you on Monday, team.
