All the way up there and back down again. -- Monkey by Lynda Naclerio - Copyright 2004-2014

And then there was VineCat.

This cat appeared out of the vines growing up the telephone pole in the neighbor's yard one night. Usually only birds and squirrels are able to get up there. It was near midnight when VineCat appeared, so I'm not sure if she knew what she was doing, but she was adorable doing the measuring head bob to get back down, and she did get back down because I saw her again a few days later.

I keep offering these cats a new home and they are not interested.

The neighborhood cats have never fully accepted the crazy woman running after them with handfuls of dry food.

I guess I could call this one HedgeCat. We've had tree cat, and several RoofCats (what is up with that?) but never a hedge cat. The Puppy was a hedge puppy but grew out of jumping into a bloody sharp hedge to get away from...whatever she was trying to hide from.

Thankfully this cat was not a psycho. -- Monkey by Lynda Naclerio - Copyright 2004-2014

That cat was totally cool with us.

Which was kind of a bummer, because she must've belonged to someone once.

Nan's doing great, in case anyone was wondering.

WHAT HAVE YOU DONE TO MY EYES?! -- Monkey by Lynda Naclerio - Copyright 2004-2014


(comicgenesis link to the same strip here)

I love manga. I've drawn manga. My comic is not entirely manga. The Fluffy One has always been manga, that's just how he rolls.

Poll #1992005 The Eyes Have It

Should I change everyone's eyes?

That would be really weird.
1(100.0%)
Yes, please.
0(0.0%)
Everything you draw is weird, why single out the eyes?

I might as well just admit it was Doctor Whoof that I submitted for review being I consider it my best recent work. The majority of the reaction was useful, but another hilarious nitpick was "I can't tell the dogs apart."

Sadly there was no way to contact the reviewer.

...A lab/terrier mix, a Pug, a Lhasa Apso mix, an Afghan mix, and a Border Collie mix. You're welcome.

My Poppy always said I was cockeyed. -- Monkey by Lynda Naclerio - Copyright 2004-2014

I don't get feedback on my drawing often, but when I do, if the person critiquing my stuff doesn't know me or my furry pals, they single out the creepy eyes. Recently I got a peer review for a comic I submitted that included the opinion, "2: The eyes are not pretty. 3: See 2."

It amused the hell out of me.

And amusing myself comes in handy when these comics go up three weeks later and my Nan's in the hospital. She's okay. She's going to be okay. She has to be okay.

Boze-de-boze-de-bop, se-de-bop. -- Monkey by Lynda Naclerio - Copyright 2004-2014

That thing I'm wearing is something I was wearing when I drew these.

It's called an ambulatory EEG, and I wore it for 48 hours. During those 48 hours I couldn't use electronics (the ten gig drive featured was dead) and being I draw with a pencil on paper, I was not inconvenienced in the least...until the weight and tightness of the EEG equipment made me ill, but the EEG was meant to record me being ill, so with three weeks between then and now, it all worked out as far as I'm concerned.

Not so much the Night of the Fly, which ended with much pouting and freaked out furries.

Bro-Dar sometimes goes nuts too. -- Monkey by Lynda Naclerio - Copyright 2004-2014

Based on actual things that happened as I sat down to draw!

...but had to stop drawing because I barfed from the tight wrappings over my EEG.
