Here's my comic strip in today's Honolulu Star-Advertiser. Enjoy it with your morning cup o' coffee ^_^ (BTW yes - I bought my parents one for Xmas and no- It wasn't the brand that was recalled for shooting out scalding water causing 2nd degree burns)

My comic in today's Honolulu Star-Advertiser newspaper. I originally had an idea and scrapped it because it was taking too long and halfway through I didn't think it was funny at all... So at 2:30 am I had to think of a new idea...

Usually I play music when I work. Lately I been listening to the NOW THATS WHAT I CALL MUSIC series. Looking on my itunes playlist I noticed MOST songs have artists FEATURING other musicians - so BING - idea...

Really wanted to include Dave Thorne in this to say we miss him in the funny pages. Dave didn't draw himself but it's my homage to him based after a sketch he did before he went into the hospital last year. Hopefully I captured his style, which is hard to do, because there's only one Dave Thorne ^_^

For the non-local peeps: "Da Kine" is equivalent to "whatevers" - an all purpose word.
