The F-mobile

Today there was a story about F Minus and the new book in The State Press, the student newspaper at Arizona State University, where F Minus began. It included this photo of yours truly, sitting on my car (where I do most of my cartooning): It reveals my F Minus license plate. Sometimes I wish I had a cooler car to attach it to than my 98 Toyota Corolla, with the broken door handles, hanging ceiling fabric, and the spiderweb cracks in the windshield. I will, however, drive this car until it falls apart around me on the highway and I'm sent skidding down the road with nothing but a seat and a steering wheel.
That license plate often draws attention and questions from my fellow motorists. I will often get emails from strangers saying they saw me driving around and tried to wave me down. More than one has claimed that the reason they couldn't get my attention was that they couldn't keep up with me. One even said I drove "like a bat out of hell". I find this hard to believe because I drive like a grandma in a city she's not used to.
Apparently the Police agree with them:

So if you see me driving around,(and you're not a cop) feel free to wave. If I flip you off, don't feel bad. I just misunderstood.

You have one year to attack me

Last week I successfully tested to brown belt in my Kung Fu class. That means that in about a year, I will test to black belt. At which point I will be taught this move:
If you're interested in martial arts, I highly recommend the Chinese Shaolin Center. There are multiple locations around the country.

Remember back in August people got upset that I had drawn a roadside memorial for a squirrel, but many people thought it was a cat? Click here for a reminder. Well, it seems that life has imitated art. Check this out:That's right, an actual roadside memorial for a squirrel. It's from a site called cute overload. So, why is it cute in real life when an actual squirrel dies, but when I draw it in a comic (no animals harmed) everyone gets upset? Ah, the mysteries of death.
Thanks to Adora for the link.

Super Saturday

Hey all, don't forget to come visit me at Superhero Day at Changing Hands Bookstore this Saturday from 11 am to 1 pm. And don't forget about the contest!
Did you spot me on Arizona Midday? For some reason, there was a cute, but smelly little dog in the green room. He later went nuts, barking during another segment. That's live TV I guess. You never know when a stinky little dog is going to ruin everything.
