No French Fries

Remake of a Dinkledorfs cartoon I drew last year. I think this one is drawn a lot better, both in terms of style and layouts. The old one is HERE, if you want to compare…

cartoon: The Dinkledorfs #10

So, The Dinkledorfs were started a couple years ago, when I was first trying to become a newspaper cartoonist. I knew that the industry was changing — disintegrating, is more like it — but I was tired of doing life as always. So I had this creative burst and drew up 9 comic strips on my iPad (the original nine Dinkeldorfs cartoons). After my iPad crapped out, I drew a couple more in my spiral notebook, but I wasn’t too happy with those. I was supposed to do 30 altogether to submit to a syndication company, but obviously, that never happened.

So I’m working on it again, but I don’t plan on going the syndicate route. I’ll just post them right here on my blog, starting with these two remakes.

One of them is redrawn above, and the other remake (the original was drawn the week I moved from Hawaii to Las Vegas) will be published right here on the blog next Monday. After that, it’s all brand new material going forward.

The new Dinkledorfs comic is starting up! Published right here every Monday — that’s the plan.

I hope you enjoy it!

    Hi Chris!

    Why don’t you at least TRY the syndication route? You’ve got nothing to lose, and everything to gain. Especially if you try to have the strip be about current topics…health is a good one. And you are SO talented. I just heard read a GREAT motivational saying by Steve Prefontaine yesterday, and it reminded me of you. here is it: “To give anything less than your best, is to sacrifice the gift.” You are a fantastic cartoonist Chris. Give it your best!

      Hi Karen,

      I’ll probably consider it once I get 30 strips under my belt (minimum amount required for submission). Thanks for the encouragement!
