What Is Reality?

For my first post of the new decade, here's today's Bizarro comic. It's the latest in an ongoing series written by yours truly and drawn by my good chum, the award-winning Dan Piraro.


It's a simple little turn of phrase commenting on the unreality of so-called reality television, and people's obsession with it.

Here's the original submission, scanned from my sketchbook:



My version showed a fretting youngster speaking to a child psychologist. Mister P changed her to an adult and chose a "crane shot" view. 

I mentioned in an earlier post how much I admire the way Dan's characters often have  wonderfully deadpan facial expressions, and today's comic is another fine example.

We've discussed mounting an exhibit of our collaborative cartoons, and it looks like it will happen in late Spring 2012.

I love collaborating with Wayno and the foot massages he gives me under my desk while I draw his gags are an added bonus!
