This strip was the result of one too many glasses of wine when discussing horsemeat debacles with friends..
Ok, so this week – in addition to taking a final cheap shot at psycho-analyzing Finn – I’m still playing around with formatting. It’s been tricky to find a middle ground between gigantic and miniscule (aka the Goldilocks conundrum).
I also am trying out a new version of Gimp, an open-source (i.e. free) alternative to PhotoShop.
Conclusion? Don’t try too many new things at once.
Anyhow, here’s my latest attempt, hope it translates ok on your screens. 🙂
So.. some of you may recall a conversation with my mom last week, where she dared to admit she wasn’t the biggest fan of Finn…
As a result of this catastrophic news, investigation has begun into Finn’s psyche. In this week’s post, we continue to investigate the raison d’etre of Finn – is he just a punk? Or is he a punk with a history?
The plot thickens. 🙂
P.S. I’m playing around a bit with format/sizing, so please let me know if things look wonky on your end. Also, thinking of putting up some pages of a larger Simon & Finn story in pending posts if there is appetite for that!
So.. I was having a conversation with my mom last week when the subject of webcomics came up (yes, I know – a common topic of conversation with one’s parents…) Anyway, we were merrily chatting and I happened to mention Simon & Finn. She paused.
Sensing something amiss, I pursued the pause like a beagle after a quick brown fox. The conversation went something like this:
Me: “Why are you pausing? Is there something about Simon & Finn you are wanting to tell me?”
Mom (uncertainly): “Nooo… not really..”
Me: “What is it?? Tell me!!!”
Mom (uncertainly): “Well…. I’m not quite sure how to say this… but …” She stopped, but then continued in low, hushed tones: “I don’t know if I like Finn!”
Mom (growing bolder): “Well.. he’s no good for Simon! He always brings him down!”
This was pure gold! And made me think… yes Finn is a bit of a punk… but maybe I haven’t given him enough of a backstory… why is he such a punk… does he really not care about Simon? And… is he really that unlikable?! Maybe what I find funny, moms find concerning, but stay with me with me as we delve deeper into the psychology of the hairballed one..
