Guest Comic by Ben Hutchings

About a month ago, I was at the Tango 9 (Love and War) and Tango Anthology launch in Melbourne. While I was hangin' and chattin' with the Australian Comics Elite, Ben Hutchings came up to me and told me that he wanted to make a comic for my Diary Of A Work In Progress site. Naturally, I was flattered. Incredibly flattered. But I thought that his kind offer was more likely an alcohol-induced obligation that would probably be forgotten. But, throughout the night Ben was more steady on that promise than he was on his own two legs. He kept repeating to me that he wanted to make a comic for me.

So I had to take his word for it.

And today, I got an email from him with this little gem. It's got Ben's great absurdist sense of humour. (If you ever get a chance to read any of his sold out Lesson Master Comics, you are in for a great treat!)

So, thank you Ben! You're a LEGEND!

PS: There have been a few other great artists sending me some spectacular art. I'll make a post in the next few days to highlight some of my favourites.

That's awesome! Hamster-feet?! It's brilliant! I'll have to check out Ben's other stuff... thanks, Chris.

I love how he got your lettering down perfectly as well.

Looks like a great comic but hard to read on the small view... Could you please link to a larger version?

Hey Jac,

As you wish!

Much better, I love being able to see the detail, thanks!

PS. I love it
