This whole week, all the strips posted here are originals drawn with ink on Bristol vellum. Yes, I still know how to do that, although, I'm sure those of you who come by regularly are able to see a little difference. This is rare, though, and I thought I'd put the strips up for auction on eBay for those who might be interested in a rare original Cock and Bull strip. I will put a "Buy it now" on it, so anyone really interested can just go snatch it, but the starting price will be pretty low. Frankly, I suspect you could get it for the change in your sofa cushions... This is also because my strip might not lend itself to be hanging on a living room wall. Unless you intend to go for the shock value and ice breaker during dinner parties with those colleagues of your spouse who you barely know and who smell faintly of paint thinner (one good thing - they probably won't come back OR invite you to their place. There's always an upside when it comes to Cock and Bull)! I will come back with more details in the morning. The plan is to have the strips go up at 12 noon East Coast time on the day they're published and each strip's auction (seven total) will run for a week. ---- On another note... As I mentioned in one of the comments - heck, let me quote myself so I don't have to type it all again:
I’m so sorry for my absence around here recently. I’m on a deadline that’s nearly killing me. I have three weeks left and I HOPE I might be able to finish, if I don’t sleep and cut significantly down on meals… Really, though, by the end of the month, I should be back to normal and I have quite a few things planned, so I hope you all hang around until then. There’s going to be strips up every day, at least! Thanks for your patience everyone!!So... I know there are those of your (Tony, Carlisle, and more) who I haven't been able to respond to lately, and I feel really bad. But with a lot going on work-wise and a computer that's needed a lot of help recently, there just hasn't been time. Forgive me! I beg you!! Anyway, please come back again tomorrow for updates about the auctions! And take care!
