Hey everybody, SURPRISE! It's actually a NEW POST! Does that make me two for two? I don't really know what that means exactly but it seemed like a good thing to say. Remember last time I told you Mommie was learning new stuff and new ways to do our blog and comic strip? Well, she is still practicing and today I thought I would show you some of the stuff she's been practicing on. Mommie used to just draw the strip exactly like you would see it. But she's been going to the Southeast Chapter of the National Cartoonist Society for a while and all the nice cartoonists there who REALLY know what they are doing, have been helping Mommie out with some "tweaking". So now she is learning how to do more stuff on the computer and putting the strip together a different way. Now she is taking each drawing of me frame by frame and putting it in strip form. More recently our strips have been frame by frame but reading downward. Anywhooooo, Mommie practiced doing this with drawings she already had of me and we wrote some new captions on them, "just for the heck of it". You might also notice the "tweaking" of the drawing of me too. She's been experimenting with how to get me "just the perfect color" for the web and for reproduction in print and stuff. So here is the "practice strip". You can help us out by letting us know which way you like it best. The way it is today, you will probably have to click on it to make it big enough to read. Frame by frame downward is big enough without having to click. Um, okay...here it is.
We'll bring more stuff to you later, but for now let's get to the song of the day. Actually today I'm gonna give you a song...PLUS a BONUS SONG! Yay! I'm really liking a group called Gomez today. You are getting their songs "Airstream Driver" and "See the World". Hope you enjoy them!
Have a good one....love, Freddie Girl and Mommie
