Fanart

So far we have received the following pieces of fanart (interestingly, the best one does not really qualify as “fanart” as it was rather drawn as a satirical criticism of one of our strips). Getting fanart is one of the most rewarding things when being a cartoonist, so we’d love to get more. I have ...

Gender Differences in Receptivity to Sexual Offers

That’s the title of an awesome study done in the 1980s on the Florida State University campus that’s showing once again that men and women are not the same. A male student approached 16 women and asked them: “I have been noticing you around campus. I find you to be very attractive. Would you go to b...

Pixar got it right

Today I’ve written two strips about the subject that boys and girls are sometimes talking past each other. They were quite funny, but the amusing parts just didn’t fit together and the strips were also “more of the same” since they would have been similar to some other ones that will be published ea...

Rejected strips

Usually, strips that are based on a bad idea do not last long and the dialog is moved to the “Sandra and Woo Trash.odt” document. As an rare exception the script of this one was completed, though. It was rejected for being total out-of-character for Cloud, a castrated punchline that would only have ...

Re: Comments

I have removed the comments since it’s putting too much pressure on me when every new piece of work is immediately judged by strangers. I have also gotten the feeling that some readers expect that every update needs to be as good as their two or three favorites which is obviously impossible.

In ten years or so, when we’re sick and tired of making any more Sandra and Woo strips and a final compilation will be published, I will leave out one strip and call it “The Incomplete Sandra and Woo”.
