No strip sorry, but news!

June 30, 2011

Greetings all. Sorry to report I don’t have a strip for you today, I’m currently working on a few illustrations with the deadline looming.

BUT I have some news…As of Monday (provided I get a strip done in time) I’ll be moving the Monkey and the Mouse. As much as I’ve loved WordPress and it’s done me well over the last 7 months, I feel it’s time to make it look like I mean business. So I will be transferring it all across to a Comicpress site, provided by the very gracious and kind Philip M Hofer – Frumph!

Here she is:

Hope you like it and look forward to seeing you all over there.

The Monkey was saying prayers the other night and this is what came out of his mouth…

What can you do?! Hilarious – good job God has a sense of humour!!!!

Still finding the feel for the art style of the strip. Used a thinner brush and went for less shading. What do you think? Still trying to get the line weights sorted and the pen pressure right…we’ll get there.

The Monkey loves digging and he loves playing Pirates, so it’s only a matter of time! I’d love to know what’s in our garden and seeing as we had a new patio recently I don’t think there’s anything too suspect!

We have reached strip 40!!!  So pleased, but we still have a way to go, at least until I get bored or you all tell me to not bother any more, but 50 is the next BIG target and I may just do something a little special then…keep ’em peeled.

I fear for this day. At least the Mouse will have a great immune system as she eats everything! And I mean everything. She pulls the moss up from between paving stones, it’s pretty gross!!!

Well I managed to get this strip done amongst some other work which I’m pleased about, so this should mean there’s no excuses for missing a strip…(don’t hold me to that!!)

Have a good weekend folks and please, spread the TMTM word! Thanks.

Snails are great! The Monkey used to love snails, but as he’s got older I think he finds them creepy and slimy. Is there a horror film about snails? Can’t be very good, wouldn’t have many chase sequences…

Hope you’re enjoying this little webcomic, and if so please spread the word either on Twitter or via facebook, and if you’re not…sorry to hear it.

Costumes 03

June 9, 2011

Love how at the minute the Mouse doesn’t really comprehend the Monkey’s games and situations and watching them can be pretty funny stuff.  She doesn’t really know how to play the way he wants her to and although funny for me must be so frustrating for the little man.

Cracking on with these strips and thankfully still loving every minute. Hope to produce something a little special within the next month or so.  Keep ’em peeled!!



Costumes 02

June 6, 2011

Sorry for the delay this morning with posting, weekend kinda got the better of me. Anyway, continuing with the costume theme, how could I resist a little pay back from the Mouse after all the stuff the Monkey’s done to her?

Dropped the Monkey at Nursery this morning after a week off due to half term, and the first thing he went and got was a spaceman suit, made me smile!

My son LOVES to dress up as someone or something. We only have a couple of outfits, but whenever he can he will! Even at nursery he’s usually in some sort of outfit. I think he may grow up to be Mr Benn!!  He’s now taken to having multiple outfits/names…which kinda worries me a little when I think about it…

Anyhoo, hope you’re enjoying the strip, I may have to bring it back to once a week soon as work is starting to pile up a bit and I don’t have enough hours in the day, but which is also AWESOME news. I’ll see what gives and keep you informed if this is the case. Have a good weekend!

The Hat

May 30, 2011

The Monkey loves the Cat in the Hat by Dr. Seuss and I love reading it to him.  I’ll have to be honest it’s the only Seuss book I’ve ever read, but want more. BUT, to be honest there’s something kinda demonic about the Cat. Very naughty and shouldn’t be about when their mother is not!!!!  He invites EVEN more mischievous THINGS into the house…The voice of conscience (the fish) is constantly telling the kids to get rid of him and his minions.

But I love reading the book, and how could you not love the artwork and the pros!  Go read it!
