Blogger Dad – the comic

Today is the first Blogger Dad comic.

As I’ve mentioned before, I regularly draw a couple of comic strips. When I mentioned this in a prior post, some of you emailed me or commented, suggesting that I include comics with the blog. So, here we are, the first journal-type comic for Blogger Dad.

Let me know what you think. Would you like to see this as a regular feature?

Other stuff

I’ve been pretty busy working behind the scenes on a cool new super secret project which I will announce later this week. I’m very excited and can’t wait to tell you what I’m up to and who else is involved!

Speaking of cool things, check out Men With Pens’ new site design!

  3. Holy crap. I’d say you have like a 6:00 PM shadow…but it’s more of like a 2:00 AM-couple of beers-and-a-rack-of-ribs, shadow.

    Freaking awesome stuff, man.

    I agree! More, more! — as long as you have time for it.

  6. Just brilliant BD. You have a talent that you should be using here .
    It’s certainly something that is going to set you apart from everyone else (I’m talking about the impressive stubble here, not the toon – tee hee!)

    Do you ever see Blogger Dad parking his car on the freeway and stealing a bag of guns from some gangsta types? I do.

    BD. How long does it take to draw up one of these?

    Harrison- Hey, thanks for stopping by. You’re welcome for the linkout, that site redesign rocks!

    Writer Dad – LOL. Thanks.

    Matthew – thank you. And while I usually drew myself like that whether I had a small or large goatee/beard going on, it is in full caveman mode this weekend after a very long week. Thank God I’m not a woman or I would have legs like Sasquatch.

    orlund – Thank you.

    Mike – Thank you, and yes, time is the trick. I likely spend about the same amount of time on both my posts as I do my drawing, which is to say anywhere from 2 to 4 hours. Way too long in any event.

    Tara – Thanks, I promise to only use the beard stubble for Good and not for Evil, something which CK Lunchbox should approve of.

    Dave – That was why I couldn’t become a cop as I originally planned. Well, that and my desire to shoot people who drive 10 miles an hour in the fast lane. Do they let you shoot slow people in the UK? If so, got a job opening? As for the comic, it takes anywhere from 2 to 4 hours per comic. I can’t remember how long this one took, I drew it over two days.

    HAAHAA! That sounds about right, but you could substitute just about any financial corporation in there. My bank did something like that to me a few months back. And what is with overdraft fees. “Hey, we know you don’t have any money, so we are going to charge you even more so you have that much less your next paycheck.” Yea, thanks.

    I would love to see a BD comic strip as an integral part of this blog.

  10. Dave Fowler says:

    BD, Oh yeah, it’s the law. If you don’t shoot people who drive at 10mph in the fast lane, you risk getting shot yourself.

    Sal – Thank you! Yes, banks are bloodsucking leaches which need a good dose of salt poured on them. I certainly hope this administration passes some laws and reforms to end what is little more than loanshark-like tactics. It is all too easy for people who are responsible with their spending and borrowing to get royally screwed. After that, it becomes a debt snowball, to use a Dave Ramsey term.

    Dave – well, that seals it, the Wrights are moving to the UK!! Woohoo! Do I need to bring my own gun or do I get one when I enter the country?

  12. Dave Fowler says:

    No you have to go to a special gun store called a ‘pub’. The guy serving the drinks will be able to point you to one of the many ‘salesmen’ who will be able to furnish you with the item in exchange for your fake Rolex. Easy.

  13. Blogger Dad says:

    LOL! Sounds like we have similar pubs here. Boy, I’m gonna’ fit right in.

  14. I love comic strips. My favourite being Dilbert, of course, because it is the world in which I live at work. Sad, sad, sad, pathetic Dilbert existence. Oh sorry, I digress. Yes please! Keep them coming.

    Love the comic. I’m ashamed to say that I work for a bank and that call is all too real.

    All the best

    I am in the middle of a all day session with Quicken this morning…If I only understood Pakistani style English better? or if I was a better tech person? maybe I could fix this problem myself…I just spent $150 on the program and still spent 10 hours putting together the medial forms for our family…no 5 minute chart ….
    Oh it is nice to laugh – thank you

    Blogger Dad, what’s your secret?

    How do you get these women so worked up?

  25. Blogger Dad says:

    Urban Panther – Dilbert is among the few comics which I enjoy on the rare occasion that I read them. Pearls Before Swine, Get Fuzzy, Non Sequitur, Mutts, and Red and Rover are among other favorites which are still in the paper. Dilbert is very accurate.

    A Dad’s Life – Thanks. I will try not to hold it against you that you work for an evil EVIL business!

    GreenJello – Thank you. And sadly, yes it is.

    Oktober 5 – Thank you, and you will.

    Jen – thank you.

    Patricia – Thank you. I’m glad that my pain can help others laugh at their own.

    Jamie – LOL. I am guessing that my Wednesday post delivered?

    LizP – Wow, I didn’t realize that Opus ended … again. Bloom County was a bigtime inspiration for Taking Up Space. Wow. I’m sad now. Thanks.

    Gidget – Thank you! Your vote has been counted

    Tara – uh-oh. You haven’t had your tea yet today, have you?

    Dave – LOL. My secret? I have designed a cologne which smells like chocolate cheesecake. No woman can resist.
