That reminds me of something I've been noticing lately. Ever time I see a picture in a commercial or movie that was allgedly drawn by a kid, they are clearly the work of a more experianced artist. One can tell because all the circles are round, everything stays in proportion, and anytime something isn't colored staying within the lines it looks intentional.

My favorite related example is in the movie Thunderheart, where this feather in a circle graffitti is supposed to have been scrawled onto a door as a warning or something. Man, it was beautiful, it obviously took hours. The "paint drips" were lovingly rendered and artistically placed.

Nice to see that first Mr. Depression strip again. I fondly remember that one.

Me too! I wouldn't mind one with ball busting action, either.

Not too shabby, kean. Mr. Depression looks more like "mr. angst" to me. :) Also, Mr. Depression's head reminds me of a Dorito. :)

I just looked at these. They're hilarious! You really should make t-shirts of Mr. Depression nad-busting. I'd sport one in a hot second--I'd even pay for it! :lol: Or wait--if it's Mr. Depression, shouldn't it be more... :cry: ?
Reminds of a business concept I had: start a Depresso bar. Instead of coffee, you could get a depressecino made with real Valium!
