more digging...

will get you stuff like this! circa 2002?


I discovered this one in my hard drive and figure it needs a bit of fresh air...
looks like this was a precursor to Pirello, who is yet to be launched into the world fully formed... sigh.


...and this is how the strip looks these days:


In collating all my run of kookabarry for a collected volume for supanova expo, I found a bunch of early versions of the characters in a story I never got around to finishing. Highly influenced by pogo, I eventually pared it down after realising that comics are often reproduced in newspapers at about the same size as two fingers. Looking back, these strips look incredibly baroque and rococo in detail. I seriously tried to cram as much into each panel as I could. What was I thinking?!?
