Aaaaaaaaaaht

So, as you may know, I was planning to submit something to calamityjon's Halloween art jam. The problem with this is that I can't draw. I mean, I really, really can't draw. At all. I'm not going to say I suck, because that would be an insult to people who merely suck. Nonetheless, I gave it a shot: I wrote a whole funny script about a guy whose office is taken over by zombies. This was the easy part because it didn't involve any drawing. Then I tried to draw it and discovered that:

(a) I can't draw
(b) my inability to draw is even worse than I remember from the last time I tried to draw something
(c) my script involved drawing a lot of fairly complex things that I wouldn't be able to handle even if I could draw
(d) which I can't.

I tried to draw it in a more 'cartoony' (read: uncomplicated) style, but I realized that no matter how far downwards you define the definition of the word 'drawing', I cannot do it. If I were to attend an art class targeted at 4th-graders in which the first assignment was "draw, with the aid of a template, a convincing smiley-face", I would fail.

So, sorry, calamityjon, I'm sure this is gonna break your heart and all but you'll be getting no drawing from me this or any other year. I do have some pens I can let go cheap, though, because just touching them makes me want to bust out crying.

Here is the logo, which is the only part of it that I can stand looking at without wanting to hang myself, and it's not very good. This is the BEST I CAN DO, is what I'm saying.

While I was at it, I doodled some pictures of MC Boy and DJ Aak, stars of a webcomic I came up with that doesn't have any pictures. After looking at these, you will see why I chose to make a webcomic with no pictures.

Also, since one of the poll questions today was screwed up, here is a substitute that will allow you to express your contempt for my shitty, shitty drawing in words chosen by me. Enjoy.

What does this art do for your appreciation of my webcomic "The Adventures of Internet Featuring Outer Space North Koreans DJ Aak and MC Boy"?
