Big Schtick – Sheepish

Big Schtick - Sheepish

Runners like to make fun while running. However, it’s a basic kind of fun without little refinement. Especially long distance running can be a bit boring at times and a joke to lighten the mood makes the boredom go away.

Pride of lions

A few weeks ago I started a comic strip called “Big Schtick.” It was more like me venting ideas about running. However, I changed directions when I saw this would get old pretty soon. Within a few days I penciled together a cast of 5 characters, of whom I know little, not even what they look like exactly, even less how they act and reaction to situations.

It feels like throwing myself into a pit filled with hungry lions who didn’t have anything to eat for weeks and weeks. Not good.

I will muddle through, but let that be a lesson to you (and myself) to do a test run of your web comic before publishing it. On the other hand, I would never have started this comic if I kept waiting for things to click. I guess I’m someone who needs trial by fire to get off his lazy behind and actually do something.

Like creating a web comic.
