Time To Fly

In a nod to Blade Runner, The Slinky One sits on a roof with a dove. He says, "I seen things you wouldn't believe. I been through the desert on a horse with no name, I took my horse wherever my horse wanted to go, now I'm gonna let this bird fly off and watch it while I sit in the rain. It's all gonna get lost like smells in rain, you know?" The bird coos. "Okay, time to fly," The Slinky One says. In the corner there's a hand holding an origami unicorn. In the background, the Spider, carrying a cane and wearing a moustache and goatee, hangs near a police spinner in the rain and says, "It's too bad they won't live...but then again, who does?"

Last year I was like, “OMG, next year is 2019? BLADE RUNNER HALLOWEEN THEME!” The whole month was going to be a drunk history version of the movie. And then actual 2019 happened, so you get a week, but you get this one how I planned it last year. Maybe a little fancier than I could have imagined. Gotta be fancy for my Slinky One.

Hey, who wants a origami unicorn avatar to show 2019 you know you’re doomed special and you don’t care know it? Credit me!

Business.

I'm all twisted up, fiddling with my phone. On my shirt is the word PLANS. The Spider asks, "Is this the fundraiser?" "Yeah, I have no marketing skills whatsoever," I reply. "As it turns out, I have 9 readers and I feel weird taking money from people I know." "But that's been your business model for the past 30 years!" The Spider points out. "By the way, I left you some webs to vacuum. Wild party." The Spider continues, "What about those designs you were making? You need to set a schedule and stick to it! Start a little earlier if you have to! I mean, really, what have you been doing?" I look right at the camera. In the last panel, the Spider has dozed off on my list of things I've been doing. "...once the headache wore off, I finished the door so the basement wouldn't get wet anymore, then I was up at 7AM for the cat's vet, and I still had to caulk the foundation, but then...."

But then I got the flu. No, really. In September. Who does that? The person I caught it from, I guess, but WHO DOES THAT? You know I wash my hands, this is a travesty.

Anyway, I was going to go, “Who wants mugs and notebooks that say ‘PLANS!'” and you were all going to be, “Yay, Lynda, you’re making things! No, I don’t want that, but I’m sure someone will.” But now all I have is this comic that took me 2 hours to make last week and here’s where I give you the heads up that the ol’ faithful Monday/Wednesday/Friday schedule may change as I bring you the kind of comics that take 3-5 hours (coming in October!) plus there are those designs that I really am working on.

While you wait, here is an animated GIF of a wee stripey laser fishermans with his catch.
