This comic is dedicated to Neo, who sent me a video of a very interesting nudibranch that expands its head in order to filter-feed from sand off the ocean floor. I thought it'd make a weird Gecko comic idea and I was right. Happy Birthday, Neo!
Snip got a sous vide recently, so right now there's steak in a ziplock bag that's going to be hanging around in hot water for the next six hours, which sounds like a health risk but otherwise is quite tasty.
I used to keep a dream diary which, while cool to read afterwards, was a pain in the neck to keep up with. Fun fact: Snip has never experienced dreaming and thinks people are crazy for feeling like these are real.
I got a new pair of glasses and not only do they majorly mess with my vision and make me see double, they also really hurt to wear. So this comic is in homage to this fun nightmare.
Why not start the year with something weird, I thought. Fish guy with his baguette was all Snip's idea. There is meaning in every panel. Or is there!
Happy Holidays, everyone! And Happy Birthday to Snip and The Will! I hope you all have a safe and uneventful relaxation with lots of cheer and good eats. Was I thinking about cake the entire time I drew this comic? No, of course not, why would you think that? Anyway, we have a huge snowstorm scheduled for this holiday weekend, and so far it's been freezing rain and snow plows making a weird grindy noise that's almost like their back-up beeper is wearing out. Plus a lot of howling wind that makes me afraid for more derechos.
Snip recently found an 18/10 stainless steel frying pan at a thrift store, which ended up being a pretty sweet deal. So he put it on a burner at max heat, reduced the temperature, then added some butter. And the butter immediately became flames. The coolest part of this was the handle.
Man, I'd be terrified to be one of those creatures that sustains itself through teeth cleaning.
I don't know why this comic makes me laugh so hard, but it does. And it was a trip to draw!
Original idea for this comic was: how do Gecko and Tail not disturb one another when they get thirsty in the middle of the night? And then it went a completely crazy direction.
