The UPTOWN GIRL crossover continues: Ladies and Gentlemen, may I present MULLET CLOWN. In 2001, after about a year and a half after I started doing STAPLEGENIUS mini-comics made up mostly of one panel gags and short, unrelated tales I decided I needed a ‘cast’. I was really into comics like HEY, MISTER and MINIMUM WAGE and ANGRY YOUTH COMIX at the time, and thought developing a cast to filter all my ideas through might be a worthwhile challenge. Eventually a random sketch at work one night evolved into MULLET CLOWN, BITTERNESS THE WRESTLER, and LIEDERHOSEN PUNK. Over the next few years a whole extended cast and universe was built around them progressivly through each new tale. In fact, one of those characters was none other than CONTINUITY GUY–who as you may know I recently revisited in the shape of a graphic novella–drawn by Mr. BUD BURGY–which is a page closer to being done each week over at Bud’s site. Check it out, there’s a new page up as we speak! How’s that for a back-door promotion?!
Speaking of back-door…here’s another Daily Sketch Goal (Ok, I don’t know how that would apply as ‘back-door’). Today we have TWO-FACE!
