Combing the desert.
In French, the punchline was, “Pas même un pou!” which means, “Not even a flea!” Which works with, “passer le désert au peigne fin”.
I’ve always thought this movie has several scenes with better punchlines in the translated version.
The Challenge for today (oh hush, I know it’s past midnight, I’ve been drawing this since 9PM) was to finish an old drawing. I searched in old sketchbooks and found the thumbnail at the top, drawn in 2001, fully intending on making it a finished piece but not yet having the skill for it. 13 years later, it’s happened. I will colour this and have it up in CONvergence’s art show.

Yes I was! Specifically I did issue 5 of the main book, and most of Bad Guys, with christopherjonesart saving my ass by doing issue 4. Thank you so much! I’m glad you like them!
By the way, did you know CONvergence this summer is celebrating the 20th anniversary of Gargoyles? Come join other fans!
Oh my god if you’re going to judge someone’s cosplay you better learn your fucking shit because this is Duela Dent you goddamn assholes.
Perpetually laughing over the fact that “real gamer/comic book nerd” males keep insulting women for cosplaying things they’ve never even heard of
who’s the “fake geek” now, fuckers?
Make it viral

the commentary is golden
And the costume is flawless.
I’ve been invited to be an artist guest at SuperFan ComicCon!
I will be set up at booth 1809. I’ll have art to sell, prints and books, I think I have a few leftover single issues of Gargoyles I can sign, and I’ll be taking commissions there.
Come see me!
My grandmother once said to me, in that dignified, calm way of hers, “I love truck nuts.”
And I was like, “Wha- Excuse me?”
"I love those little plastic testicles that people can buy and put on their truck hitches," she said. "Because I can tell at a glance that the person is a horrible, offensive moron, and save myself from having to find this out via a conversation. It’s a wonderful time saver when you belong to a motor home club, dear."
She is right. Every time some idiot comes up with a t-shirt that says “Go make me a sandwich” or “No fat chix,” that is a kindness on their part. They are doing women, right thinking men, and society in general a great public service.
So that we can tell the douchebags at a glance. So we can determine, without a single word, that this person:
A. thought that this shirt was funny
B. no, seriously, they found that funny enough to SPEND MONEY ON IT
C. and has no one in their life to tell them that wearing it out in public is unacceptable
And is therefore not likely to be someone anyone wants to interact with. Turns out Gramma was right; it’s a great time saver in fan circles, too.
