A recent panel appearing in the Fairbanks Daily News-Miner.
My war-pony was resurrected from its dormant slumber in the driveway after a couple years, which meant opening up a financial black hole. And so after dumping a couple grand into a vehicle that's only worth a thousand bucks, the power steering hose blew, and after fixing that and restoring pressure, consequently the entire gear-box went in turn, leaving me broke in more ways than one. Fortunately I doodled out a funny while waiting at the garage: never underestimate the power of product placement. For some folks that might be the equivalent of selling out, but hey, you know what? That's the lucrative flip-side to having a marketable skill. My hourly studio rate might be about the same as that of an average garage, but for some weird reason the cartooning trade is in a wee bit less demand than that of a competent mechanic. Also you never, ever want to laugh at the mechanic.
