Crooked grind

Apologies for the lack of posts this week. My many revolting old walls are being skimmed so I can sell my castle. Sadly this has only served to make the house extremely filthy in every way, and rendered most of my possessions inaccessible. Join me in praying that, a week from now, order will have been restored (at massive expense).

I did start work on an SGR skateboard. The idea was suggested to me before Chris Onstad introduced his, but only about two days before. The number of times this has occurred is high, real high, like a beanstalk. Onstad is always one step ahead - like a pixie.

Anyway, here it is, tall in every way:



It's urban, yet rural. Do you see?

Rurally urban or urbanely rural? Both, I think. In any case, it's pretty rad.
I hope selling your chateau is a 'good thing' and the market is up, up, up.

So now you can proudly tell prospective buyers: "This is a good castle, the walls have been skimmed and the ghost hole has been filled in." They'll snap it up.

I fully expect your next project to be a DIY book titled "Real Estate Marketing for Cartoonists."

P.S. that's quite a nice Shelley.

This is a long shot, since shortboards are a billion times more abundant

but what about pretty pictures on a longboard?

hmm, this is off the topic, but...
i am in love with the koala pole advert in your comic, so I fixed it up from the panel where Shelley is reading it, and here it is...
Hope you don't mind, but I think it's hilarious, and I wanted a desktop of it!

If you make this long, tall shelly into a bookmark, non-skaters may enjoy it as well! You could personalise the back for extra money! You could sell it in tandem with BOOKS RULE!

And then everyone would win.
