Ben & Winslow

Chest of Drawers

Feb 17th, 2017 | By

Cartoon characters wear the same clothes all the time because cartoonists are lazy and don’t feel like deviating from their drawing routine. I’ve doubled down on this laziness by making my characters’ clothes so integral to who they are that you wouldn’t be able to tell them apart if they suddenly started wearing other things. Do they have one outfit that they dutifully wash every night and change into the next morning? Do they have closets filled with identical clothes?



I Want a Pizza That

There are about a thousand jokes that I could have used here, each of them more crass than the next. But my philosophy is this: I will always try to eschew the obvious joke for a more obscure but ultimately more satisfying one.

———– It’s about time Winslow got back into the genetic engineering game. Maybe this time he’ll finally do some good. Could you imagine the Senate floor overrun with acid-spitting monstrosities? (I don’t plan on making a bunch of overly politicized comics this year, but part of the reason I endeavored to drawing as many comics

This year has been awful. We’ve lost a lot of really good people and had to deal with some pretty crappy global events, culminating in a disastrous U.S. election (and then followed by even more deaths). Lots of folks are looking forward to 2017. Count me in, man.

Winslow’s been eating a lot of pizza this year (and this particular brand has showed up in a couple strips already). It’s now easy to see why. And in case you’re wondering, this place only exists in Ben and Winslow’s town, and it doesn’t deliver.

Annie has wanted a baby for so long that none of this should be surprising to anyone.



The Man in the Red Suit

It’s been a crazy, emotional week, and I couldn’t find the motivation to sit down and finish the strip I had originally planned for today. So guess what? I sat down and drew Deadpool instead. And then I drew Winslow. And then I wrote words. And that, ladies and gentlemen, is how a comic strip is born.



I’m Not Saying It’s Aliens, But…

Come on, Ben! Why are you asking so many questions? Why do you have to be that guy?
