Creator Commentary: I did this comic strip in sixth grade, so I didn't use the best materials. I drew the comics in a single subject notebook on ruled paper using pencil only (no inks). When I was preparing these strips for my blog, I scanned them in and decided to re-ink them using my Wacom. I kept the inks loose to retain my sloppy sixth grade line quality. Since I've been on a coloring kick, I decided to add a splash of color just for the heck of it.

Slick And Pals
Since last week I posted samples of my Roofus comic strip, this week I'm posting samples of my very first comic strip, Slick. Early in my life, I knew I wanted to draw comic strips. As a kid, one of my favorite strips was Garfield. Today, I'm not the biggest fan, but I can't deny that Garfield was a big influence on me. This comic strip is called Slick and Pals. The main character, Slick, is one cool customer. He's a cross between Garfield and Heathcliff (another favorite) except he's a dog. Trembley is a mute, scaredy cat. Eek is a cute but mischievous mouse. Jake Armstrong is the owner of all these crazy pets.
