Here's a two page comic for the 20th edition of Not My Small Diary, a comics anthology that explores a theme each year. The theme for 2019 was music. Not being deeply entrenched in the music world, I struggled to conjure up a solid memory. However as I combed the back alleys of my childhood mind, I remembered that KISS was a band that always seemed to haunt my nightmares.
Here's a simple attempt at creating a basic newspaper comic strip. Although syndicated comic strips are more or less a thing of the past, the Adventures of Melvin and Kelvin was an experiment to see if I could figure out a regular format that might have lasting appeal.
TRIGGER WARNING. If you are even marginally squeamish when it comes to tooth related injuries you might want to click away. In this harrowing autobiographical comic, I recount one of my more disturbing moments of clumsiness during an ill-fated theater production.
