may all smokers burn in hell

Yeah, smoking disgusts me.

So here's a two page story. I think I'm starting to figure out the kind of cartooning I want to get into doing... definitely more exaggerated. I think comics are the perfect medium for exaggeration. I just read David B's Epileptic and it blew my mind into all sorts of different directions. I don't know though, I'm still trying to figure it out.

I'm getting sick of drawing so small. All of the pages i've been doing are drawn at 8.5 x 11 and i'm finding it hard to draw half decent panels... let alone ink them. for the actual mini they're going to be at half that size so it works well enough... but after this project I'm definitely going to move up.

This is a nice training ground for myself, but I know I can definitely draw much better comics than these.

WHAT!!!!??? Think you just stepped your game up to another level.
Not only are the drawings hilarious, but you've managed to make this much more coherent and readable than your previous strips. This is great.
oh....and I can totally relate to the thought of smokers.
