Gag Writing: PC and Pixel Comic Strips (Part II)

PC & Pixel by Tak Bui

As mentioned in a previous post, one of my regular cartooning gigs is working as a contributing gag writer for the daily comic strip feature, PC and Pixel by Tak Bui. This means that I help the comic's creator out by doing some of the, what I like to call, "productive daydreaming" that usually (i.e., sometimes) leads to a workable idea for the strip.

Unfortunately, this also means that I need to have writing materials readily available at all times, because I never know when an idea will present itself. For example, I can sit and think long and hard at my desk, and just type the gags as they arrive, however, there are also other places where I occasionally sit for extended periods of time. Places where the ideas seem to, umm ... "flow."

The moral is to never let a good idea (*ahem*) go to waste.

The following are some PC and Pixel comic strips that I recently contributed to. Click any cartoon to enlarge ... Enjoy!
