I don’t know where this one came from. I guess he evolved from a sketch I was working on awhile back.

I did the same with Intestine Boy (too lazy to link it right now) awhile back. I really should scan a page of my sketchbook and the finished product. Hey, that would make a good meme. Hmmm. Anyone game?

Not so sure about the meme-ing… but… Intestine Boy?!?! You’ve got me curious now!

Brilliant! Now I want to see a comic featuring Intestine Boy! (And his trusty side-kick, Water Boy.)

Lee: I’m no illustrator. Trust me. A comic is waaaay past my drawing abilities!

Drawing abilities? I think you’ve got plenty. And besides, a lack of drawing abilities didn’t stop me from starting a comic!

The Obligatory Blurb

My name is Andrea and I live in the Westboro area of Ottawa with my husband Mark and our dog Piper who is kind of a big deal on Instagram. We also have two human daughters: Emma (20) and Sarah (18). During the day I work as a writer at The Royal Ottawa Mental Health Centre. I am a longtime Ottawa blogger and I've occupied this little corner of the WWW since 1999. The Fishbowl is my whiteboard, water cooler, and journal, all rolled into one. I'm passionate about healthy living, arts and culture, family travel, great gear, good food, and sharing the best of Ottawa for families. I also love vegetables, photography, gadgets, and great design.
