I'm not quite sure what me getting kicked in the backside is a metaphor for, but I think you'll agree it is pretty profound nonetheless.

Thank you! It was a deeply personal voyage of discovery. With slapstick.

You can tell that I am a real artist because I shouted that even as I was being kicked up the behind.

We all dream of making the comic that makes children cry and vomit. This is All Our Lives.

And it's lovely! Really nice style/colour.

Thank you! I figure if I only use one colour on a comic there is less chance of me making it hideous!

But I didn't make you cry or vomit? I have failed as an artist.

The lesson is: always keep a rolling pin handy when you are trying to write a comic.

It is no surprise that the personification of a comic is as a bug-eyed sadist. A bit like children.

This was super deep.

That's only because you didn't have to wipe it down afterwards.

If a comic kicked me in the butt, it'd get much more than a roller pin! D:

If you made a webcomic that featured nothing but the mangled corpses of comic ideas, you would be taking all of my money as I buy the trade paperbacks, the movie tie-ins and the Xbox game that come from the success of it.

Is that what you want? To take all my money?

Hahahahahaha! Rolling pins, like frying pans+violence=humour galore. But-- wait!! So this is your highly elaborate excuse for not doing ANY WORK AT ALL for the last four months, eh sonny?

I am not fooled! I drove past your house and saw all the balloons and party streamers. You have been living it up every night eating cake, playing video games and not drawing. Haven't you?

aw, that's metaphortastic!

I don't keep a rolling pin in with my art supplies, but I do have a spatula. And a pirate sword. And lots of dinosaur toys. Those are important.

Have you been wearing the same shirt for 4 months, or have you changed it inbetween panels?

I'm glad you have realized that fame can only come through the agony of children. Look at DaVinci. School children are still suffering through his art while he rolls around in his money filled coffin.
