Good Luck Mark!
Recently Mark Stokes of “Zombie Boy” fame challenged me on Facebook & Twitter to create something for the Ice Bucket Challenge. If you are unfamiliar with The Ice Bucket Challenge (#icebucketchallenge), it is to spread awareness of the disease Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS) also know in in the States as “Lou Gehrig’s Disease. The Ice Bucket Challenge is done by filming yourself getting covered in a bucket full of ice water. But most of us comic folk don’t look good wet, so we opt for something a little different. And that different is creating a comic instead!
Back in 98 I lost my grandfather to this disease. ALS is not a contagious disease, but it is a progressive neurodegenerative disease that affects nerve cells in the brain and the spinal cord. You can learn more about the disease and perhaps, make a donation at their website http://www.alsa.org/.
Many other comic creators have already created “Ice Bucket Challenge” themed comics. You can view them in the links below.
A few weeks ago I was honored when fellow cartoonist and friend PJ Day asked me if I would be interested in submitting a guest strip for his comic “Flatt Bear“. I’ve been reading Flatt Bear for quite some time now and loved the idea of creating a guest strip.
Flatt Bear is about a bear named Duffy. While misdirected and misguided, he instead of being placed in the animal protection program has found himself in the witness protection program!
Please click the picture or here to read my guest comic over at flattbear.com. And while you’re there, stay a while and check out PJ’s other Flatt Bear strips in his archives page!
