Have I really been stuck in this since October? So, here’s the thing: when I started doing Ice Cream Koans, I was hoping to do philosophical-style stuff like the old “Up a Tree” series from before. But I got kind of stuck. For me, it’s not a good idea to start an unscripted series and just trust in a premise to generate stuff itself.

So the other day, I started thinking of, writing, and drawing a new Dinosaur Kid series. I did the first three comics before realizing, “I’ve gotta finish off Ice Cream Koans first.” So I went back and wrote the rest of those. After this one, there’s 5 more — and then the new series’ll start. And I’m really loving the new series, so I’m going to try to finish up this one as quickly as possible. Quicker than usual. Like … hopefully this month (April). So wish me luck, and we’ll see how it goes.

Also, a little color came back! I call it “quick color.” Because I did it quickly. And it looks sloppy as all get out (on purpose!), but that’s canonical — because now the little guy is maybe hallucinating. And it just doesn’t quite pop this way without color, as you can see:

ICKs005 colorless

And GO ROYALS, by the way.
