I am writing 30 minutes every day in the month of October to help raise funds for Seattle's Hugo House, a place for writers. A lot of what I've been writing falls under the heading "Ideas for Short Comics" -- a flurry of ideas which I may sit down and turn into comics one day. I am posting some of them here on LiveJournal for other cartoonists who may get inspiration from them. Here is a challenge for comics creators (If you draw comics, feel free to attempt this one yourself, and maybe give me a little credit on it):
A comic goes on for a few panels until a drop of rain hits it, and we realize that we have been looking at a comic that character has been reading. That character opens an umbrella and is then revealed to be a mascot on a product's packaging. The product is then shown to be a part of the scene we were shown in the original first few panels. The overall feeling should be that we have witnessed a complete cycle, either narrative or visual, or both.
If you would like to support the Hugo House, please donate a litte something via my page...
