    Motherduckers just announced a 10 inch Eevee Funko Pop. And it comes out on Black Friday. Oh boy.

    Also, don't collect Funkos. It's a dangerous addiction. Resist the temptation.

    By the way, from the last thread, if anyone thinks they are a bigger Calvin and Hobbes (or Bloom County) freak than me, get in line. That is my life. That is all I wanted to do with my life. Unfortunately, I rage-quit drawing when I got writer's block that wouldn't go away one time.

    I got into art because I wanted to draw like Breathed and Watterson. Then I stopped.



    I follow Breathed on Instagram. He will actually reply to comments and questions.

    They are the greatest, seriously. I actually found a way to use Calvin and Hobbes in my communications class over in Thailand. It was selfish, but it helped them out, or would have if they had paid any attention to me lol

    My drawing had really progressed, but I just could not relax my mind enough to settle on a storyline and characters. It drove me utterly crazy to the point I couldn't take it anymore. I always did two things to find peace - go to the bookstore, and draw. I miss the latter. That's the reason I get stuck dreamily in Photoshop making stupid pics. Now I am full of ideas, and I can't draw anymore :laugh:

    This was the phone in my room growing up. I still have it somewhere.

    No, I don’t know why this was a thing either.

    Is that the Opus phone? I had that too, absolutely. I don't think I ever used it as a phone, though. I have a stuffed Bill the Cat - when I had my Mini Cooper, before I went to Thailand, I had him in the passenger seat with the seatbelt on. Every single day.

    I got really good at ink, then school and sports meant I had no time. Now I'd love to sit down and draw but everything I do looks like I hold the pen with my fist.

    I also learned to read via Calvin and Hobbes. Which also often meant I was learning how to use a dictionary too.

    I too enjoy the occasional Sunday comic strip, such as Kathy, and Dunesberry. Total kneeslappers

    Surprisingly, babies are the one thing I have had good luck on flights with. Occasional cry, but most have been good.

    Know what was the worst? Someone brought their yappy terrier on board. That thing didnt shut the f*** up for 5 hours going LAX to PHL. I'm an animal person, but this thing was testing my limits.

    Calvin and Hobbes, Bloom County, and The Far Side were the last great hurrah of traditional newspaper comic strips. I think I lost my Billy and the Boingers record that came with the one collection. :oops:

    If someone puts their flyers stein in the dishwasher, let me know how it turns out. Non dishwasher safe dishes in 2019 is literally communist.

    I think most of those steins are in pieces on the streets of Philadelphia.

    About 2 hours. The baby was sleeping the whole time thank goodness. The bigger issue is the mom taking up a seat and a half of space.
