Lynn's Comments: If you can come up with a strip that has no words, it’s a real plus. With the right subject, the right imagery, facial expressions and timing, a joke with no words is as much fun for the artist to work through as it is for the reader. Strips with no dialogue need no translation and can be published anywhere. This style of comic strip is not easy to do. Artists who consistently produce wordless, beautifully constructed comic strips have always had my sincere admiration. Canada’s Doug Wright was one of these.
Lynn's Comments: A drawing like this required some reference material. When I couldn't take the photos I needed, I had loads of magazines to look through. I'm quite jealous of the artists now who can just go to YouTube and Google!
Lynn's Comments: Yup. But I think the music was better then than it is now!
Lynn's Comments: When I was about 18, I went with a couple of girl friends to English Bay. Adelheid, who was a stunning dark beauty, ran into the water in an opaque, white bathing suit. But, when she walked back to us, we could see everything. Wet, her white suit had become transparent. She was horrified and spent the rest of the time rolled in a towel. Interestingly, I don't see too many plain white bathing suits!
Lynn's Comments: I had a lot of fun drawing this strip!
Lynn's Comments: Whenever I had a crush on a boy, my imagination would lead me to a scenario much like this…but, minus the other people.
