It’s a New Year and I’m going to try to write more blog posts. More artist’s journal kind of posts, keep everyone up to date on what I’m doing: thoughts on my comics, news about my site, my awful procrastination on making t-shirts and mini-comics for the site ‘store’, etc. etc…. Plus, all the other exciting things I’m doing! (Actually, I’m not doing much, mostly drawing and writing, reading, and sitting around my apartment with my stove, my lamp, and my little league town championship trophy watching Sixers games. But, I’ll try to find interesting stuff about what I’m doing to write about, and, if that doesn’t work, I can always MAKE THINGS UP! Ha, ha, ha!)
Thank you everyone who’s been following the kuddle kittens for the past seven months. And thank you, thank you, thank you to everyone who comments here and on the kuddle kittens facebook page. It’s hard to work on this without hearing from you. If you don’t like public commenting (like me), send an e-mail! I love hearing from people!
About today’s comic, I’m totally with komfy. Post-holidays, winter, the short days, lack of sunlight, I think staying in bed twenty four hours a day, if possible, is the best way to deal with all this. I envy the worm who gets to hibernate.
I hope everyone has a great 2012!
Lots of stuff was left behind when the flood waters in the valley where the kittytown cam is receded, and king kitty and the kuddle kittens have spent the last two days cleaning it all up. They found some interesting stuff! Here is a list of some of the things they found: a yoga mat, an old clock, the number 5, a smoke alarm, four salt and pepper shakers, last year’s christmas decorations and one of their old easter baskets from five years ago, my stove, a blue sock, a set of fine luggage, a bunch of cool alien ray guns, jump ropes, a bowl of jello, six marbles, a cheese grater, corporate reports from 2005 tied up with string, a pile of rocks, a pink step ladder, four yellow markers, a calvin and hobbes quilt, a broken ‘caps lock’ key, a torn acl, some purple dots, some dinosaur fossils, six mean spiders, and three glasses of sour milk.
I never noticed until two years ago the froot in Froot Loops was spelled with two o’s.
Right now my favorite cereal is Honey Bunches of Oats, but I always get Froot Loops when they go on sale. Froot Loops are so beautiful.
Does anyone know if the different colors taste different? Does the purple taste like grape and the yellow taste like lemon? Or do they all taste the same? I’ve tried eating the colors seperately but I can’t tell, my palate isn’t sensitive enough. One friend tells me they do taste different but only the yellow and the green, the others all taste the same. Another friend says that they are supposed to taste different but they all taste the same to her.
I’m eating breakfast and staring at a picture of a spoonful of cereal on the front of my box of cereal. In tiny print next to the spoon it says, ‘product enlarged to show detail’. A different brand says it is the cereal’s texture they want to show. My brain is going, ?????????. I really think the pictures are enlarged for design reasons. A cereal box is big and in order to have a big bold design the box needs a big bold image, not a silly-looking tiny life-size picture of a teaspoon of cereal. I have no problem with that! Why are they lying? Is design something to be ashamed of? I’m actually more confused by the Life cereal box where the spoon is held up next to two human heads and appears to be twice the size of those heads. Shouldn’t there be tiny print next to the heads saying they’ve been shrunk in order to hide texture? Maybe because they have ugly pores and split ends?
radio galaxies, einstein error box!
crab and vela pulsars! cosmic-ray protons!
unidentified gamma-ray objects,
gibbous moon, the orionids, astrometrics,
kleopatra in the hyades (the 10th magnitude asteroid in the hyades cluster),
a large amplitude eclipsing binary star in the heart of the orion nebula!
chinese constellations: black tortoise of the north, celestial slanderer, azure dragon of the east, wagging tongue and the hairy head.
the auriga pentagon.
Hey everybody, I just put four drawings on my facebook page! I have alot of miscellaneous illustrations and I think that’s a good place to put some of them. They could be from comics I decided not to use, or redone pages that I did publish, or something I’m just playing around with, or just some random drawing! So check out the kuddle kittens facebook page once in a while to see what’s there.
Only one little post-publication regret with today’s super-absorbent paper towel cartoon. I just wish there was a little noise when kozy is pulled free from the suction of the paper towel. A ‘ploop!’ maybe would have been nice!
So, what’s with super absorbent paper towels? My theory is that they are like black holes, and if you are sucked into one you are whisked to some other dimension. But, unfortunately, kozy got all chicken and was rescued, so we’ll never know.
Everyday i get one to six people searching ‘planet jupiter’ who come upon this website. The reason they come here is because of this comic.
I welcome all you searchers (and all searchers in general) to the kuddle kittens! And good luck on your science reports all about the planet Jupiter, which is (according to this comic) about the size of a small house and annoys the kuddle kittens when they are trying to play. I hope you get an A+!
