HATMAN & HOPI~ PIN-UP VARIANT~!

Ever feel like you missed the mark
with a gag, joke, or comic opportunity ?
I think this OCD is acute within all
artists who strive for perfection
yet always feel like they have
fallen short. Schultz knew
how to milk kicking a Football,
or Pychiatric Help sessions
with Lucy Van Pelt... I think
I had to stop Hatman & Hopi's
Desert Adventure because I
got addicted to the idea of
a running dialog that
transpired within an
ambiguous symbolic
unconscious wasteland...

Below, is another attempt to
'capture' abstract ideas that
are still germs, or, unplanted
seeds... Each viewer will have
to build upon it, or breathe
life into it, via their own
active imaginations.


HATMAN & HOPI~ CONTEST PIN-UP PRIZE~!

To the victor go the spoils, a
new full-color 17 x 11 Pin-Up:


It will have an inscription
to the Contest Winner in
the lower right corner.
I am intentionally
leaving it without
words... to inspire
dialog on a daily
basis... like the
awe of laying
out under
the stars.

But for shits and giggles,
I have put words on my
digital copy:



I thought it was going to be
difficult doing this Pin-Up,
since I hadn't drawn these
characters since 1992 !
But my Body Memory
kicked in and it all
came back like
butter, Baby !

Tomorrow:
I will announce
the Contest Winner
along with sharing all
the entries, fully lettered
atop the freshly inked old art...

HATMAN & HOPI~ NEW DIRECTION~ DAILY STRIP #28

I immediately started to ramble with
the Desert story-line, and, although I
love to MILK jokes & gags for all they
are worth, decided that if any syndicate
was going to seriously consider picking
up this offbeat strip, I'd better condense
the narrative~ and gave at shot at single-
day non-linear snap-shots... for a while...

Later... as you will see... I got back into
week-long MINI-adventures ! Enjoy~!
