It's been way too long, but Mike and Mindy are finally back and celebrating the first anniversary of this blog! Isn't that exciting! It was one year ago this month that I started this blog as a way to showcase my work after MAD Magazine rejected me for a second time. And what do ya know? I've managed to go a full year without loosing interest in this thing!
Anyway, enough of the sentimental crap, here are the comics!
Poor Mindy, she hasn't really been catching any breaks lately.
Ah, if only high school had really been like that!
And now, in celebration of my blog's first anniversary, I'm going to answer the ten most frequently asked questions that I've gotten thus far in the past year:
Are you high or something?
In their first installment, Mike blows up like a balloon. How could he float if it was just regular air?
It's a cartoon people, It doesn't have to make sense! (Besides, in the world of cartoon physics, any gas can make a balloon float)
What's with Mike's hair? Why's it so Spiky?
Hey, that's two questions! But I'll let it slide for now. His hair is spiky because he's part Sayan.
Why does Mindy wear bloomers?Because they're funny.
How come so few of your comics have backgrounds?It's mainly because I want the gags to be the focal point of the stories. That and I suck at drawing backgrounds.
Why's it called "Jon's Crazy Stuff"? It doesn't seem all that crazy.
Because "Jon's Stuff" was already taken.
Who are some of your influences?
Too many to list here, but the biggest would be Jim Henson, Don Martin, Jack Davis, Gary Larson, Chuck Jones, Tex Avery, Mel Brooks, and Antonio Prohias.
You're obviously a huge wrestling fan, so who's your favorite wrestler?That's easy, Jake "the Snake" Roberts.
What have you got against TNA Wrestling?Truth be told, I have nothing against the Nitro Reunion Tour (sorry, couldn't resist). I just don't like how they hold younger, more deserving talent back so they can push a bunch of dudes who were old when I was a teenager as the main eventers. I love Ric Flair and Hulk Hogan, but these dudes need to quit now while people still remember them fondly.
No, seriously, what are you smoking?For the last time I'M NOT HIGH!
Well folks, that's all for now. This month was very busy for me. I just finished an eleven-day run at the Convention Center where I was running video for a surgeon's convention. This thing was huge, attracting 35,00 attendees and taking up the entire building. This is the first day off I've had in over a week, so I have a ton of catching up to do. Needless to say, it'll probably be comics week by the time come back and post again. Until next time, I'll catch y'all later!
