Manboy Japan Part 1





























Accidental party hat in that picture up there.







TO BE CONTINUED.....
(I know, I know, the suspense is killing me too...)

Forgot to add: this is an attempt at a straight comics post. But it is taking forever to draw....so I am dividing it up. Please let me know what you think! If it is interesting, dumb, whatever..

    1. Yay first comment! Thank you, lilkittin! I am nervous about it, because its a lot of drawing, and often when bloggers title something "part 1" they never get around to part 2.
      Myself no exception.
      Plus,its easier for me to write than draw; I am not a natural illustrator, so this is tough.
      That bathroom thing really happened....it was pretty funny. I wish I had a recording of that little asian lady saying, "it her fault she no lock the door" I would make it into a dance remix

  2. Don't know which I like more - the grey lady sitting next to you, or the one on the toilet.
    Regardless, I likey them both a lot.
    Tell me more.

    1. Oh Mr. The Jules, I wish I could tell you that so many awesome things happened, that my life was changed, but really this is just going to be a string of mundane incidents crudely drawn...
      there is your next

  4. It's great! Especially love the guy sitting next to you and the way he slurped, grinned and stared. Really well done - hope you don't keep us waiting for too long ;-)

  6. The white letters on the blue back"ground" of the sign Have A Nice Poop cracked me up.

    Yes, it is much better than "whatever".

    I am so looking forward to going to Japan now. It will make me study that much more .....

  10. Straight?!!! That's about as straight as...a not straight thing, or Lombard St. in San Francisco, whichever is less straight. Throw me some more curves! (Please?)

  12. I sat next to that lady's sister on a flight from Amsterdam to Houston. A 400 lb deaf mute who ended up writing notes to me for 10 hours and falling asleep on my shoulder in between.
    Travel isn't for sissies.
    Awaiting the rest of the saga with baited breath....

  15. Ha. Beautifully directed Gween - storyboard drawing another one of your talents. You need a button on your blog for your shop.

  16. You've got me interested and wanting more....

  17. I'm on pins and needles!
    Are you still in Japan? If so, how much to bail you out?
    What was the purpose of the visit, besides visiting a tightwad Uncle?
    Why oh why did you get rid of the goatee?

  18. Ha, I like this! I can imagine its a ton of work though. Excited for part 2.

  20. Never underestimate the power of your writing, Gweenbrick. Your Special Origins story remains my favorite. If it is more natural for you to write (and faster)... by all means just give us a fewer cartoons to make it pop! I enjoy all the ways you tell a story. It's fun to watch you experiment! Please continue.

  21. Loved the black-and-white frame of you being dragged away... nice touch.

  22. God, this honestly must have taken you FOREVER to draw. o_O Kudos, man.

  23. To be continued!?! How dare you, sir.

    You know I ALWAYS love your stuff.

  24. Interesting OR dumb? Why can't it be both?

    Although I don't think you've ever posted a dumb thing.

    Can't wait to see the drawings of Japan. ;-)

  25. This is great. I'm looking forward to the continuation. I always thought your very early post about your trip to Japan would be good illustrated. I like me a nice cold "bottah watta" every now and then. The bathroom surprise made me laugh. I wish you had a recording of your pardon from the stranger, "it her fault".

  26. Ha @ the accidental party hat. I'm definitely looking forward to the next installment!

  27. I love it I love it I love it. If I was sitting I would be on the edge of my SEAT. I am standing though. Keep going!
