Braggin on my hubby!

Ok ladies, I have to do a little bragging and perhaps give you all a little comic relief.

My husband has been drawing cartoons since before I met him and is quite the creative artist. He has drawn a cartoon for today and it is up on his blog. So entirely proud of him and his work, I can’t express it, lol! He hopes to some day be able to support the family with his art.

Anyway, quick disclaimer. He knows full well that not all knitters are grannies. He has all the evidence he needs to support this fact right in his living room, lol! :roflhard:

Here ya go and have a great day ladies and gents!!

2 Qt !!!

:muah:That was awesome!!! I left a comment! Loooooved it!

Then I read and left a comment on the Star Trek TOS disk set post…maybe he can do something with ST and knitting…I can see it now, Kirk goes back to the future and finds Picard knitting…so Kirk phasers him out of existence…:roflhard:

(Welcome to my twisted world!!!)

What are the rules regarding linking to this comic? I’d like to put it on my knitting blog: Luknits with a link back to his site. I’m afraid to without permission though ;).

Wow! He’s a very talented cartoonist!! Wish I knew some other knitters personally, so I could use the word "yarntard’!! :lol:

Lu, you know what, I have no idea what the rules are. I know he’d love it, but can’t give details yet. I’ll get back to ya on it :D.

Nice cartoon idea too :wink:

I was thinking the same thing. I don’t get a lot of traffic on my blog, but with a link to his site, it could direct a hit or two his way.

:roflhard::roflhard::roflhard::roflhard:

Love it! He’s very talented! I’d read those kind of comics everyday!

I haven’t had a chance to see too much more of his site, does he do a lot of knitting stuff? I thought the flaming knitter (especially a granny one) was a riot!!!

:roflhard:

I :heart: it!

This is actually his first knitting cartoon. His current main theme is an alien reporter/researcher named Nergon who lives with this computer geek. Lately, hubby has been drawing 24 cartoons on the tv show 24, mixed in with World of Warcraft cartoons and really anything that comes to mind. He has also posted some cartoons that he drew for our sunday school class this summer. A little this a little that really.

He’s got a new idea mulling around in his head and he hasn’t divulged any of it to me yet, other than the fact that he’s working on something new and doesn’t want to show me anything yet cause its still in its bare bones state. Can’t wait to see what it is!

Update on linking to his site, here is what he has to say…

[FONT=Arial][SIZE=2][COLOR=navy][COLOR=navy][FONT=Arial]I guess tell them I don’t really have any rules for linking. Feel free to link. As much or as little as you want. Link link link. Love the links.

He’s VERY talented. I love the facial expressions, and it’s a crisp, well-drawn cartoon - pleasing to the eye. There are some which I like because they are clever (such as Mother Goose & Grimm) but the art leaves much to be desired. So when I find one that is well-drawn AND clever (like Opus) I love it TWICE as much!!!
:woot:

I loved it! I really did need a laugh this morning. Thank him for me. I did have trouble with the pwned thing. My DS says it all the time, but I’ve never seen it spelled. I figured it had 2 o’s not a w. Learn something new every day!

Yarntard!! Bwahahahahaha!! Notice that was not knittinghelp.com but some other lame knitting site. The people here at KH would never call anyone a Yarntard (unless they deserved it obviously!):roflhard: That was hilarious! I’m going to go link to it from my blog (to his, not copy!)

YARNTARD!!!:roflhard::roflhard::roflhard::roflhard::roflhard: OMG I soooo need that today thank you sooo much for sharing that!!! Please have him do more knitting hard a$$ granny and link them to us.

[B]Yarntard[/B] is my new favorite word!!! :cheering:

“Pattern pwned” SNORT :roflhard:

(I’ll try NOT to use those while teaching knitting though.)

He did it for the LULZ! That was great!

OK…someone tell a newbie what is ‘pwned’???
:whoosh:

Thanks so much for asking that!!:slight_smile:

Pwned, pwnage, pwning…all gamer talk really for “you really got creamed!”

So…you could take it as “Pattern pwned” = that pattern kicked your hiney"

Or…you could take it as “Pattern pwned” - granny kicked yer hiney via the forum

I can’t count the times I’ve been “pattern pwned” lol!:roflhard:
