My Week Drawing "Bizarro": Day Three

I'd like to thank all the people who have sent complimentary or congratulatory emails regarding my Bizarro guest-hosting duties this week (you two know who you are). But posting such messages here would be far too bumptious and quite frankly boring to my readers (you two know who you are). So instead here's a comment regarding yesterday's strip:

"I thought the Tonsil Fairy was really gross."

Thus, in order to avoid any further negative reactions or backlash, I present today's strip:


I'm still not crazy about my layout in this panel, but I am quite proud at the nice gradation in the background (which I learned under Dan Piraro's Photoshop tutelage). Somehow, however, I don't think either composition or coloring are going to be the focus of any emails I may receive today.

Come the Rapture, those little Xian fish will disappear again.

Unlike the cheese flavored fish that only disappear when I get the munchies.

Well, I think it's hilarious and I went hunting for it online after seeing it in the paper just to put it on Facebook. Yes, I do have a job. Just wanted you to know.

Behold, the miracle of Cheesus...


(um, yeah, that was funnier in my head...)

Cheesus H. Rice! (Yes, I stole from a Simpsons episode - sue me.)

This is my favorite of your Bizarro strips so far.

Hey Cez... If you add a little noise to the gradation, it will keep it from banding like you can see in the web graphic... :)
