High Fashion and Poop


Well, it was OBVIOUS that I had to continue the adventure of this little turd. He appeared earlier, but now he's going to have his own little story.

While I drew robots, unicorns, and poop this weekend, my boyfriend checked out some collections during NYC's fashion week. I got a chance to see some of the designer lines as well, and boy, there was some pretty impressive stuff. It's so interesting to learn more about an area of design I'm less familiar with. I love hearing my boyfriend talk about the silhouette, cut, and details of clothing. It's mesmerizing how much thought and planning goes into some of these shows, too. There's such an eager audience for these events! People arrive and wait with bated breath to get a glimpse of their favorite designer's new creations. I can't say that I've seen many fine art crowds as passionate and impatient to view the latest creations by a living artist.

It's really interesting to me how the fashion world forces its audience to charge ahead and stay with the times. If fashion shows bared any resemblance to most American art museums (and their patrons), the styles walking down the runway would be forever stuck in Victorian England's fashion era...or maybe even caveman skins.

Awesome, more poo!! I love how the unicorn is so horrified of the living poo, I guess I would be too! You should submit these strips to some alternative newspapers and magazines, I think you have a hit on your hands.

I finally got some new pages up, go check them out!

David - I checked out your pages! They're incredibly wacky and deranged as always. I love them.

Thanks for the kind words on the strip. I'm trying to boil the "writing" down to the essential few words...but I always worry about which phrases I use. Your comment helps reaffirm that they're working.

I think the way you word the strip is perfect, not too wordy, just the right amount of what you need. Each strip is also a work of art, the colors and everything work so well together that I could frame each one and put them on my wall. Can't wait to see more!!
