Colin's Gulf War Diary

The Gulf War Diary started almost spontaniuosly. I was sitting watching the news and grabbed paper and pencil and began drawing a cartoon, starting March 28th I think it was. I didn't know what to do with it so I had it put up on my web site. The cartoons are drawn fast, written pencilled and inked in about an hour. The great limitation I found with print comics was by the time I drew them I had worked and reworked them so much the passion, the urgency was gone. And by the time they were printed and available, months after the event, they were now history. This is, I think, the major advantages of on-line comics, topicality and reach, a genre that otherwise holds little interest for me. I will try to post a cartoon strip day for who knows how long. I'm told what I'm doing is a "blog", which sounds to me like Australian slang for vomiting, so I guess it's not all that orginial. I just knew I had to say something about this war. I've written letters to the editor but I am at heart a cartoonist. This is how I howl...
