A Stick figure Adventure in Ten frames: How to create a blog post

I have been asked more than a few times, “So… how, do you create your blog posts?!”

So, inspired by the Nerd NiteHealth Comics and Healthcare” and with most of the week just too F#&!@%# hot to work at a computer, I thought now would be a good time to sit down, in the shade, with a pencil and a piece of paper to see for myself exactly how hard it is to create a cartoon and answer that question.

Not trying to get off easy, I went with a stick figure representation of myself.  Aside for not having glasses and being a smidge thinner than I really am, it is a fairly accurate representation of my appearance.   It didn’t take too long, required minimal swearing and was fun to do.

Although this won’t win any prizes nor will I be making a graphic novel of my stick figure misadventures any time soon, I’m pretty happy with the way it turned out.  So, I’m going to call this a win and who knows… if people really like this, maybe my stick figure doppelganger will start making regular cameos.
