Smithson Thus Far... ·


I really loved drawing Pipe-Smoking 1950s Dave with Horn-Rim Glasses, to the point that I used him again in a later Sunday feature. I like the way Dave looks with visible eyes. Shame I ended up structuring the entire strip so I couldn't draw him that way until the very end.

This strip comes out of my intense love for old instructional classroom films. I've got a bunch on DVD and multiple books on the subject; Mental Hygiene by Ken Smith is my favorite.

Leon Arnott (l) says: It's quite impressive how well this comic strip evokes a specific variety of motion picture.

Speaking of instructional films, didn't you say something about uploading something called Vacation Stress? If you have recanted out of shame and/or copyright restrictions, know that nobody will judge you.

Mr Davenport looks so much more firm and authoritative with his eyes visible, somehow. I like the quirked eyebrows (and notice that they're now actually on his face, not floating in space.)

Shaenon Garrity (shaenongarrity) says: Man, if I can figure out how to transfer "Vacation Stress," in whatever weird file format it's in, onto YouTube, I totally will.
Justin Grubbs (the_purple_knight) says: This is probably my favorite incarnation of any of the characters. Even more than ANTONIO SMITH, FORENSIC LINGUIST, and believe me, that's saying something.
