The Musings of a Foolish Dreamer
                 Finally got an update up, even if it is filler….Hey, pudding!

incongruousgears:

  Page 153! Okay, let’s get this out of the way. I’ve delayed several updates. I fell behind and it’s just been difficult to really work on much. Hence, this is also a filler page. Pudding! This page is also quite old, as you can see. I intended to use it for…an older update, and then never did. Such is how life has been. Although to be fair, Tumblr was also down recently, and then it started to just become strange and unusable. That part, at least, turned out that I needed to update my browser, is all.
     I have a couple of more filler updates, and hopefully things will restore to normal soon.

                   New comic up finally!
incongruousgears:

       Page 152! Before I get into the schedule, let’s look at the comic. Yes. Bill Watterson himself provided some art on 3 Pearls Before Swine comics. Just….yeah, mind blown. It’s really amazing that this happened. Stephan Pastis explained that Watterson actually had an idea for him to do in the comics in question. Just…wow, again. Yeah.
     The best thing to do is read Pastis’s blog post about this situation in his own words. It’s funny and fascinating. Check it out here- http://stephanpastis.wordpress.com/2014/06/07/ever-wished-that-calvin-and-hobbes-creator-bill-watterson-would-return-to-the-comics-page-well-he-just-did/
      As for the schedule, so I’m posting this on Thursday, obviously, instead of Tuesday. It was just easier this way. I’ll try to have an update, and two updates, next week, but given how busy this weekend is going to be, we’ll see.

                    Update!
incongruousgears:

      Page 151! This is based on a sign I did indeed see, and this joke immediately came to mind. But hey, God and I are like this.
     S this page is late; or rather, a page is late this week. However, there will be a regular update Tuesday; it’s about ready! As for next Thursday, I’m not sure yet…Next week is going to be busy and it may be difficult to get another regular update. So, we’ll see.

       Page 149! And it’s pretty late. So the story behind this is that firstly, when I started working on this, I realized there was no way I could get what I really wanted onto one page. But I didn’t want to just start all over again either and/or redraw the whole thing. So, I put this on two pages. I know, a lot of web cartoonists do this, but I tend not to. I gave it a try this time, and helped contribute to why this is late. Also I could not get the watermark to look right…
             Anyway, so yeah, this happened! Somehow my joke was lost, even though I thought it was…pretty obvious!

incongruousgears:

          Page 148, and I know it’s a late one this week….But this kind of illustrates why. Don’t you hate it when your clocks catch on fire? Yeah, it’s really inconvenient. Here’s hoping next week is better.

                    New Incongruous Gears!

incongruousgears:

        Page 147! A day late, but still here! Another quick one, and one I actually began a while ago. So yeah, haven’t seen them in a while! Reportedly, work hasn’t been that bad lately though.

                   Hey, an update for incongruous Gears!

incongruousgears:

       page 146! This is just sort of a…teaser, I guess. We haven’t seen these guys in a while! But they will be back soon!
      Unfortunately, with my schedule the way it is this week, I don’t know if there will be another update. If there is, it will probably be late. I just don’t know right now, but I’ll do my best to get done on time.

                        New page is up, after having missed a couple of updates.

incongruousgears:

                Page 145, and I two previous updates. I fell behind again, and as for this update, it’s a simple one representative of recent events.I was inspired by a piece of clip art I saw, actually. Hopefully I’ll be more on track next week.

                   New Incongruous Gears is up! It’s basically a nerdy love letter!

incongruousgears:

        Page 143! On time, too! Hey, I regenerated again! I’ve still got the same daft old face though! So while this is obviously a Dr. Who reference, it doesn’t have to be. If you didn’t know that it was, the point still comes across. Indeed, whenever I feel like just a grizzled old man, all she needs to do is appear, and I’m back to my old self, which is ironically my younger self. I suppose this same idea could also have been made into a ‘You Make Me Feel So Young’ reference.

  Page 142! I missed the last update again, due to life events, so….Anyway, so this is pretty much what happened at the store recently. Sometimes when I make a joke, I get a blank stare! It could be because some of my jokes are just that bad, or perhaps I delivered it with off timing.
    Pencils?? You better believe it! I do miss the earlier days of penciling the comic a little. One reason why I stopped was to get more practice inking, but also it was cleaner. With penciled pages, I did have cleaning up to do, sometimes digitally, especially in the earlier days, and it could take a while. I don’t have as much time to do that right now, so inking helped with that. At the same time, I feel that something is just missing or lost from something I draw when it’s inked. There is a phrase for this phenomenon, which I can’t recall, but it does exist. I thought it would be a nice change and I did appreciate it. I probably won’t keep doing it regularly right now but we’ll see.
