I love sitting down with other cartoonists to shoot the bull about our art, techniques, projects, etc. Recently I had coffee with fellow Ann Arbor cartoonist Mr. Jay P. Fosgitt which was a meeting almost a year in the making*. During this meeting Jay asked if he could draw one of my TOACM characters. Why would I ever say no!?! The first character that came to mind was Squid-Girl!
Squid-Girl is a big-time celebrity in the TOACM universe and since both CM and Dougy are kinda geeky they were bound to have some Felon-Fighters swag somewhere in their apartment. When I saw Jay drawing this awesome pin-up the idea for this comic strip popped into my head right off the bat.
If you're not familiar with Jay's work I encourage you to give him a look! His personal website is undergoing an overhaul but you can always catch up with him on his blog at jayfosgitt.blogspot.com. He also has a devinatArt page at www.fourpanelhero.deviantart.com as well as a super-keen Live Sketch Show on UStream Wednesday's at 8pm EST.
*Yes, of course there's a funny in-joke behind this.
