FC 124 - Bust Out the Champagne

This comic didn't turn out exactly how I wanted. I couldn't get the blurb just right. I am, however, proud of my laboring Egyptians. I was almost tempted to do the people in the style of old Egyptian art, because not only would it be funny, but it would be easier to draw. If I lived in the time of Egyptian artists, I would be their Picasso!*

The guy not pulling the giant block is partially inspired by my time as a stone mason. We had a piece of wonderfully shaped driftwood that fit perfectly over your shoulders with buckets tied to either side. We used it to carry materials into sites where a wheel barrow couldn't go. We called it the Yoke of Depression*. Believe it or not, I sometimes find myself missing the Yoke of Depression.

Sorry for semi-advertising, but for you or anyone else who likes the Friday Comics as much as I do, you might be interested to give your comics-chops (at least the captioning part) a try at www.argylesweatercaptioncontest.com* www.argylecaptioncontest.com. National newspapers might not be as cool as getting your idea published on BdW, but I takes what I can gets... :-)

@Horge: Thanks for the heads up on Argyle Sweater. I've added it to my list of daily [mostly one panel] comics.
