Life of Glych #76 – The Story of Lump (cont’d)

So, I have to admit, the lump is fun to draw. But that does not negate how things were left in the end. I hope I can do the reality of the situation justice with my cathartic cartooning. Here’s another Lump poem. *ahem*:

 

The Lying Lump

I know of a manipulative liar, lying on a moor.
He lies all days in moors because he has no place indoors. 
The fire-panted liar, lazing about all day.
Lit his moor afire, lying to it one day.
He pondered over taxes and wondered over fees,
while all the while he was lighting the ground aflame with his knees.
Now he has no place to lie and lump around all day.
The manipulative little liar lied his world away.

This is the beginning of the end of a friendship, in comic form. Because when you’re hurt, make art. I wrote other poems that won’t make it into comic form, so here is one below. I shall include another with the next page.

The good thing about the end is that it got me to get to making comics again. I’m just sad how things ended, that things ended, and that I let someone take advantage of me for so long. So, to poetry! Enjoy:

Smells Like Lump

I knew a little lump.
Lumping through his day.
He lumped his way to the fridge,
and lumped his way to slay
video game monsters on the Internet all day.
But the little lazy lump,
with his lazy gaming days,
forgot to lump to work, and oops!
He lumped his Internet away
with no monsters left to slay.
So now he yells and cries,
and lumps himself a fit.
But this lazy little lump?
He’s just a piece of shit.
And I am done with it.

I missed yesterday, but this isn’t a weekly like it used to be. More chapter based so I think it should be okay.

Muddy, muddy, muddy… But I shall keep plunging forward. I am very out of practice.

Tomorrow’s comic won’t be so muddy. The Higgins Eternal Black Water Proof Ink is not so water proof when it’s been sitting in storage for several years. I have other inks that are pretty solid, so tomorrow’s comic should be a lot cleaner. Enjoy.

It’s been a long time since I’ve updated comics, but part of the story is going to be about why, so stay tuned. We’re going to go over depression, anxiety, and other invisible issues.

I have used PCs most of my career but sometimes I think my brain runs on Mac. nut because it’s a better machine (they both have their pros and cons for different applications), but because when a Mac freezes, sometimes the only fix is to turn it off and pray. A PC gives the user a few more options to get the machine up and running again without the required hard-reboot. So when it freezes…

There was a period of time where my old computer collected dust in my office because I was using the new laptop more and more. I felt guilty about that.

And from the body…

I hadn’t taken many progress photos between the last set and this one. I basically continued to fill out the body with wire until it was solid enough to cover with tin foil. This is just ordinary tin foil found in any super market. I had only worked with the thick wire and the tin foil at this point in the process so T was pretty flimsy. His arms would bend easily just by touching them and the tin foil wasn’t secure completely around the wire. But his shape was forming.

This is viewing the figure from the back. I had bent his tail up to center the weight more over his feet. At this point his arm was still twisted back. Note the large feet. This is for stability.

Looking at the figure from the side is a lot easier to tell what stance he is in. This is pretty boring at this point and lacks the dynamic shift from later photos. His hand’s shape wasn’t defined at this point. I did not know if he would be pointing or holding a sword. I was worried about the added weight.

A frontal view of Captain T. His stance is pretty stiff at this point but was still malleable. I was able to make him twist more dynamically before the next step. Between this step and the next was several months and a move across town so he went in a box with a bunch of other tools until I found him again in the new city.

…A body emerges…

Pictured above is a full picture of the underlying skeleton of Captain T. At this point I had been working on the sculpture for about a day or so after finishing my work for the day. By spending anywhere between an hour to two hours a night and no more allowed me to spread the work out over time so I did not get burned out.

This is a closer picture of the skeletal structure. We’re looking at T’s front. Note how his feet are coiled over twice for stability. He is also free-standing at this stage which is very important for maintaining balance when I add to it later.
