I decided to do something a little different this year for my annual Krampus card. I’ve been thinking of retiring this character, and, since I’ve started a new comic strip venture this year, I used the comic to work as both a sunday strip and to do double duty as our holiday card, both giving our dear Krampus a fine send-off, and transitioning to a new era of “Mose Goes Walkies” greeting cards. Once I did this Sunday strip (pictured above), I felt I wasn’t quite through with this guy (and his waggly tongue), so I continued the story throughout the week (below are the next few chapters, with the plan to continue it throughout the following week). The strip can be read on a daily basis at the link above in the menubar, or if you wish to check out more you can subscribe to our Instagram feed (where most of the action happens), support us on Patreon (entire archive, plus extras) or sporadically on TikTok.
Finally managed to get the ‘Mose Goes Walkies’ website up and running. I’m not sure where this new venture is going, but I felt it was different enough from my usual work that it needed its own web presence. For those that are just joining us, I’ve been drawing a daily comic strip since May 31st of this year, with the goal of perhaps someday publishing these cartoons in some form in the future. At this point (I’m nearing 100 strips very soon) I consider it ‘on the job training’, learning to be a better cartoonist, expressing myself, fulfilling a lifelong ambition, call it what you will. There are links on the website to our Instagram account, our Patreon page, and several sample strips to peruse. The link in the menubar above will take you to the official website.
The strip above is one I’ve done early for next Sunday, as I’ll be away at a music festival this weekend.
I’ve created a Patreon Page for “Mose Goes Walkies” as a way of supporting my cartooning habit. Ever since I was 10 years old, I’ve wanted to be a cartoonist. I’ve compromised over the years, working as a graphic artist, then as an illustrator for more than 3 decades, but as I’ve only got five more working years (give or take) left in me, I’ve decided to pour a lot more energy into achieving this goal. I am still very new to this, and hope to improve with repetition.
I’d like to reassure my illustration clients, that I am still accepting commissions and will be giving 100% of my energy and creativity to whatever future projects come my way, however you will be seeing a lot more of Mose around here.
