The quote on panel 1 is from Neuromancer (a book I’ve never read – despite being tremendously influential on everything I did during the late 80s, but the first line of it suited what I wanted to do, so YOINK!)
This strip is what happens when I have too much time to draw – idea was conceived after mulling over all the stuff I don’t like about big sporty thing and its attendant rampant consumerism – people being annoyed with other people selling their torches? and yet the entire thing is one big sponsored sell off – many of the people running did so because sponsors paid for it. To be fair, that rampant consumarism is in everything, not just a big sporty thing.
Anyway, inevitably, a few days of doodling stupidly quick drawings I do something that requires time and effort. I actually like the art in it, though don’t expect this level of effort to continue. I’m on my bleeding holidays.
(In hindsight, the line “Illegal Chips” is funnier, isn’y it dammit.)
