It's Organic!

There's been a lot of talk, lately, about those energy saving lightbulbs. I had this great idea for an herbal lightbulb! Here are a few concept/technical sketches:



If anyone knows how I could get funding to continue my research in this important area, please let me know! The first prototype is still a little over the horizon, but I am CONFIDENT! I haven't even grown the herbs yet.

Oh, and I just finished a magazine comic that features characters that kinda-sorta resemble me and my friend Denver. I mean, if you squint. The comic is called "Strange Days" and it's mostly about how wierd the world is.

I wanna be a character in your comic! Can I be the guy who tries to sell cloned glow-in-the-dark cats to the guy who sorta resembles you?

Ben Hatke said...

"Duck and Toilet"? You must be thinking of someone else, Jaime. I would never have created anything so shameful and unprofessional.

Man, with that and Steak asking to be in my comic it's like I'm back in college again...

Remember when the cwod superheroes kidnapped Santa? ...or was it a rescue? my memory is a bit fuzzy.

Is Denver the one on the right?

Ben Hatke said...

"Is Denver the one on the right" Ha ha! Jill you kidder!

...I think I need to actually learn to draw.

Ben Hatke said...

And Santa was a big-time villain in those comics.

Eric Orchard said...

Ha! Great stuff.

Jill said...

sorry, Ben! I didn't mean that to be as rude as it looked in print! I knew who was who all the time...the tie gave it away.

...santa was evil...it's all coming back to me now...i gotta go dig up my old cwod magazines from the closet now!

No worries Jill! You are certainly not a rude one!

So no one seems interested in the herbal lightbulb. I guess I'll have to convert my dreams of being a wildly successful inventor into dreams of being merely a wild and tortured inventor.

It's like going from Edison to Tesla. ...or John Logie Baird, who invented the Stay-Dry socks.
