This week I decided to post two comics. The first was on Monday, October 11, 2010 and one today. A new character Danny is showing up in Flowerville. Danny is a character I created a number of years ago. Danny is loosely based on a friend of mine, at least the part about Danny flying a kite. My friend Dan would come over late at night with his kite in hand and fly the kite at midnight. The cool thing was you couldn’t actually see the kite flying, just this string going into nothing. It made you feel a bit vulnerable and out of control, as if something were pulling you. And the big smile on the character Danny reminds me of Dan too. Dan always had this smile on his face and nothing seemed to get him down. We thought we were so philosophical at the time, talking about things beyond ourselves and the world around us. One last reminisce about Dan, we would play two CD’s at the same time on occasion. For example we would put on a Cure CD and a Bigod 20 CD to make an Opera of mayhem. This may seem weird, but being kids we wanted to experiment with everything and see what we could come up with. So these are odd but fond memories that helped make up the character “Danny”.

With that in mind, I want to catch you up on the comic. Duck is running around Flowerville with his spy cam hidden in his flying hat. Vincent is snug in his room safely watching from his computer. This is where we meet various characters coming into the story. Wayne is first on the list. Wayne is Vincent’s next door neighbor who lives with Loyd (who you’ll meet in the near future). Wayne has a passion for his flower garden. He is orderly and seems to get agitated easily. And now we have Danny who is Vincent’s running buddy. Like I said previously, the character Danny was created a number of years ago in a comic that I never published and only shown to close friends. Danny loves his kite and takes life as he see’s it, with a big smile on his face. And in the next few weeks there’s going to be many more characters to be introduced into the comic!

A very old picture I found of the character Danny I drew for the never published comic.
