When I was younger, I always wanted to be a cartoonist, whether it be for a comic book or whether it was doing my own comic strip. I tried numerous comics; submitting them to newspaper syndicates only to be rejected time and time again, although there were a few that made it higher up the chain than most. Then came the web and I started doing a few comics here and there. This one was the longest running comic I did. It was a daily and it was originally titled “Charly and Company”. I’ve been toying with the idea of picking it up again.
All of the original strips were done on bristol board then scanned in to the computer. Now I have the benefit of doing them on the iPad although I do miss my hand lettering because I think I had a unique style.
