Catching A Cold

Very well done! I cannot tell you how many journal comics just say "I have a cold." You manage to show the true drama in even the everyday simple things and make it into a story when everybody else's journal is boring. What you realize is, you cannot wait for life to be interesting for you, it is you the artist that has to make it creative and interesting.

What a clever and insightful comment from losttoy. He or she must be an artist as well. I wish I could think like that....I can only come up with, gee, Chris, that is Good! I get it...I'm a nurse!! airborne germs, clever little devils.

Thanks guys. You're right. I kinda felt like I was cheating if I did a plain "I have a cold" comic. I get bored easily, so I try to challenge myself with coming up with new ways to tackle everyday issues.

I've just left Kleenex Kingdom!!

Good stuff... though I prefer the "I have a headache" topic. It's more my style. :)

"Kleenex Kingdom" - that's Klassic! Don't get me wrong, but it's kind of comforting to know that other cartoonists out there get frequent headaches, too.
