new scutmonkey: the 6 stages of overnight call

This may be a slight retread if you follow me on Twitter, but one particularly bad night on call about a month ago, I posted a poll surveying the worst overnight call phenomena. After that...well, after that it was just a matter of drawing the thing.




Here, panel by panel:




For those who are curious, I've been meaning to get back into cartooning for a while now (despite the long hiatus I've actually drawn comics...well, basically my whole life, since I was a very small odd child with too few friends and a bit of a defensive sense of humor to match), but as I noted previously, making these comics does take some significant amount of time. I mean, at least the way I do it, which is extremely analog and old school, it involves many inefficient, labor-intensive steps.

Joe actually got me one of those Wacom tablets about a year ago because I've been yammering about drawing more since forever. He thought, quite logically, that a tablet might be a good tool that could input the my drawings directly into the editing software. It was such a thoughtful gift, but...I don't know. There's something about the tactile sense and resistive friction of drawing with specific tools, and I'm picky enough as it is about my writing implements.

I did try to do a sort of quick and dirty YEARS ago, with this "colonoscopy face" comic...




...which I deliberately did on a yellow notecard just to force me to treat the exercise it casually. I briefly considered doing more things like that--just casual, tossed off, straight ink to paper, no erasing, no post-processing cleanup, nothing. But the fact is that I don't like things that are careless and tossed off. I want to do things how I want to do them, and how I want to do them necessarily takes a certain amount of time. It just does.

Anyway, everyone has their weird outlets. Writing and drawing stupid comics are mine. I hope you liked this one.

    1,2,3,4,5...8?

    Is that part of the loss of sense of time of night shifts?

    Fantastic comic by the way!

  6. Consider trying an Apple pencil on an iPadPro? Might not have enough resistive friction though. I thought about putting some sort of film on the screen to give it a bit of resistance...

  10. For those who may not know about this might find it hard to imagine that international shipment of household goods is a very standard practice by now. We have truly become global citizens. There are statutory provisions in import and export regulations to deal with international relocations. You just need to opt for international relocation while filling out forms or while searching and you will be redirected only to relevant providers.
