anything’s possible

Wednesday, March 7th, 2007

Another experiment in wordless strips, this week’s comic is the first part of a micro story arc. No fancy punchline here, just a moment in time. Do you feel cheated? 😛

It’s been a crazy week. I did a couple of guest comics over at the Book of Biff while Chris is away dealing with real life stuff. You can see them here and here. If you aren’t familar with this awesome single panel daily webcomic, go ahead and get lost in the archives. Chris’s imaginaton is a fun place to wander around in. So, shoo and I’ll see you next week.

<3 calan p.s. your haikus were amazing last week. seriously. thank you. :)

    I wish I could fly 🙁 Maybe I wander around today and look for a bird to take it’s wings off and try… I kid!

    Lovely 🙂 He better keep an eye out for the Owls, they love their after-dinner cookies.

    Oh if only it were so easy! Really cute, reminds me of when I tried to parachute with my bed sheets when I was a kid. good times 🙂

    I tried to do that with some feathers once… jumped off a somewhat high platform. Needless to say I got hurt.

    The guest comic is awesome 😀 Two of my favorite comics in one.

    ..By the way, the ability to do a wordless comic, and do it well shows true talent. Well, that’s what they say anyway.

    I could see a Geico commercial come from this: “Storytelling without words… so easy a caveman could do it!”

    I tried that too when i was little…

    I like the curly tree in the backround.

    i think we all tried it as kids in one form or another. it’s amazing we are still alive, huh?

    growing up watching cartoons like the jetsons, i was sure by the time i was grown up we would all have jetpacks or at the very least those cute bubble shaped hovercrafts.

    *sigh* at least we can fly in our dreams. whenever i have a lucid dream, the first thing i do is start flying.

    O and hey calan i came over here from biff and read your comics a while ago…but i didnt get around to commenting until now… like your comic so far especially the art and colors. 😛

    I recently saw a Leonardo da Vinci exhibit at a local museum. I’m almost certain he did this when he was a child too.

    Special bonus haiku:

    discarded feathers
    inspire a flight of fancy
    careful – don’t let go

    I am: I recognized your name from TBoB. It’s nice to have you here. 🙂

    justme: you really write some amazing haikus. it’s always a treat to see what you’ll come up with. thanks for helping make my comments area so damn cool. 😉

  11. I am Satan, I am Jesus Christ Says:

    Yay its great to be recognized by a good comic. 😛 Im no good at haikus or any other form of poem/art. i just like to admire other peoples stuff haha.

  12. calan Says:

    i’ll tell you a secret (here on the internet where no one can hear me. :P) i never wrote a haiku until i started making the comic. i hadn’t written any poetry in years either.

    haikus came up in an email with a friend and we wrote a few back and forth that day. it was a fun little challenge and i was developing the comic still at the time and thought it would be cool to mix the two mediums so to speak. totally experimental, you know? i really didn’t think people would like it but decided to do it anyways.

    my point i guess is you never really know until you try. so don’t be shy if you ever want to give the haiku thing a whirl. you might just rock. besides, the really bad ones are just as much fun to read. 😛

  13. I am Satan, I am Jesus Christ Says:

    Woo dont worry I’ll keep the secret between you and me…hah

    Its good that you experimented though cause i think it really works out great with the comic. Ill probably throw a few bad ones in next time a haiku comic comes around.

  14. justme Says:

    calan:

    i’m glad you like them
    thanks for the inspiration
    you just made my day

    …well, they can’t all be amazing. :/ But seriously, thanks for the encouragement, and the awesome comics and haikus to inspire my muse. I’d barely written anything resembling poetry in my life before stumbling across your site. (Unless you count the occasional dirty limerick…. :D)
