Well, here we are at last, the final 8 panel Clarence the Christmas Caribou strip! 62 months of coming up with gags and laughs (hopefully! At least I know I had a few good laughs writing and drawing them). 62 months of giggling to myself as I toiled in the lamplight of my drawing board. 62 months of people wondering what I was up to when I probably could have been up to something more productive, or more lucrative, or whatever...
Truth is, during that time I had the opportunity to explore what makes up a Newfoundlander and Labradorian [note: this is a term that did not exist when I was originally drawing 'Clarence'!], what makes us tick so to speak. All these strips eventually were published in book form by a local publishing company, that went out of business...not my doing! The title: 'Ungulate Philosophy'.
I did continue on to draw many more months as a 4 panel strip. these can be found elsewhere on the Random Sound Studio website, continuing on in the same vein of commentary on our collective psyche. Someday there may be another collection...who knows? All I know is that I loved drawing them and many kudos to Ron Young for suggesting that.
Just remember, life really IS too short - Have fun! It's a good life.
