My absence of new cartoons

All two of you who check this site regularly may have noticed I haven't had a cartoon this last week. The reason is I am putting older cartoons from this site onto my GoComics/Sherpa site so everyone there can see things that I did before I opened that account. I have nearly 150 subscribers there and am getting up to 30 comments per cartoon every day. I am still working on more Rogue Symmetry and will be back with brand new ones on both here and Sherpa.

More childhood drawings by me!

The Challenger tragedy really affected me as a schoolboy. This is a drawing that I did shortly after the explosion. You can see guts and body parts falling back to Earth. I didn't have a gruesome obsession with it or anything and I don't remember feeling a special attraction towards the nastiness of it. I was just being a kid who was oblivious to the human tragedy side of it. I just drew some innocent drawing that would get kids sent home in a police car nowadays. It was a totally normal drawing for a young boy. Or so my psychiatrist keeps insisting. 

I have always been fascinated with lighting too. To this day it is hard to stay indoors during a storm and not go outside running around with my hands up in the air screaming with joy.

I've always had a bad feeling that aliens were watching me through open windows. Again, my psychiatrist says this is normal too. (Then why are his windows always shut!?) Sadly I wasn't so young when I drew this one. I was thirteen. This was about the dozenth time I drew a similar situation in my life.
