When I started drawing webcomics, I did not have any influences except that I liked what Scott McCloud was doing with The Morning Improv. There were no spirit of any artist, because I really had no idea what I was doing. Perhaps i should have tried to emulate an artist instead of my random illustrating. The drawings were doodles at best, thrown together to make a gag (if I was lucky). There was no such thing as style or storytelling back then. However they did have a weird wackiness, while similar, paled in comparison to the likes of Chuck Jones and this comic you draw above.
