For Jeff's first strip I asked him to make Desmond look as uncomfortable as I always feel in those little hospital gowns. Next time I'm going to remember how Desmond looked, and feel even more uncomfortable.
Doctor: How long has it been since your last physical?
Desmond: I'm in excellent health.
Doctor: Glad to hear it, but --
Desmond: My people are just big-boned!
Doctor: Let's just listen to your heart.
Desmond: Okay, but only because those were Mom's last words.
Today Paul and I are thrilled to welcome Not Invented Here's new artist Jeff Zugale. Jeff has been working overtime to build up a buffer of strips, and so far he's taken everything we've thrown at him and turned it into sweet cartooning gold.
As I warned, a change of artist is not an easy thing, and I know his take on our characters will take some getting used to. But I think you will come to find, as I have, that Jeff is just as awesome, in an entirely different way, as Paul.
Go Jeff Go!
