sketch of the week no. 59


strip 71 panel 1


Nightpumper makes a break for it!! Not only does he have CHI POWER working for him, notice the "M" on his right palm....this means he is from the lost continent of Atlantis which makes him almost superhuman! But I know it's expected, after all he is the one known as NIGHTPUMPER!!

strip 70 panel 5


Maybe it's that people want drama in their lives and subconsciously create their own dramatic, challenging predicaments. I doubt that's what happened to Nightpumper because he's way more evolved than that!! No, his struggle is a result of a bad chain of events resulting in this unfortunate life threatening position that he finds himself in. A lesser man would certainly fold under this relentless hailstorm, but Nightpumper is made of stronger stuff, the right stuff!!

strip 70 panel 4


Oh Gawd!!, remember these flatfoots? The cops on the beat that have been watching as this whole drama with NP has been unfolding, all in the safety of their squad car! Let's call these guys "Sam and Dave" because we don't know their real names....not yet anyway!

strip 70 panel 3


It's been a rough time for investors for quite awhile now, and been a rough time for people rejected by health insurance companies because they had a bad cough in 1992. But right now, Nightpumper is going through outright hell!! ...and it's just not letting up, in fact it's getting worse. This may not have a happy ending FYI and if you give a shit.

strip 70 panel 2


If we all reach deep into ourselves, we find that we have a strength we didn't know existed within. I'm talking about the strength to endure the misfortune of others!!! And now, people, let's all hold strong as we watch Nightpumper in his "travail."

strip 70 panel 1


Here's the new panel demonstrating how Stream of Consciousness Comics is s0-0-0-0 out of touch with what's happening in the Santa Cruz community. We here in SC, are wrapping up fighting the 7000 acre Bonny Doon (it's a town in the mountains)/Lockheed (they have land up there) fire!!!....talk about smoke and devastation! Well, you wouldn't know it looking at the strip's latest entry with our very own Nightpumper battling heavy rain and hail the size of golf balls!...is this a parallax of reality? 'er what? especially since we're in the dog days of summer!

sketch of the week AND strip 69 panel 4


Sammy is concerned, here's what he's thinking:

" I am being neglected by my owner, Sandy. I require more attention than I am getting. I give her unconditional love but she doesn't reciprocate. She's too busy solving Iceland's woes,... that takes up the bulk of her time and what's left over is devoted to cleaning....even her yoga is suffering! I am resentful and bitter. Sure, she feeds me, she feeds me real gourmet cat food, but I need more, and if she doesn't get with it pretty soon I won't have any more unconditional love for her and she's going to have to find it somewhere else!"

strip 69 panel 3


I'm sure you've heard about the Australian aborigionies who have nothing better to do than walk around all over the outback for no good reason at all and call it "walkabout"?...some kinda cultural/religious thing they do to as a right of passage or something....I don't know nuthin' about that but what I do know is that Nightpumper is doing a Northern California version of that very same thing!...only with a twist: it's raining!, hell, we're finding out it is now frickin' hailing! and "Pumpy" is feelin' it!, big time!

strip 69 panel 2


Well,... here's something entirely disconnected from anything, it's even disconnected from itself! There is no reason for it to exist except for this is Stream of Consciousness Comics fer Christ's sake, a place, a venue if you will, where things exist that shouldn't!...go figger.

sketch of the week no. 55


If one picture is worth 1000 words, how many words would a sketch be worth?.....350?
