While Ptooey and Loogie's first comic jam awaits a bold cartooneesta to step forward and take the helm, the wacky couple are taking a new approach - the strip format! No, I don't mean you'll be seeing Ptooey work the pole; I mean I've drawn a few Ptooey & Loogie comics in the style of a daily strip. Here they are.
I think these two characters have a great potential for versatility, so I tried to explore that in these strips. I went for romantic comedy in the first and third ones. With the second one, I was hoping to show how they can enter the world of the bizarre or surreal, a la The Twilight Zone, or Dream of the Rarebit Fiend.
I also wanted to add to the Ptooey and Loogie bible some, so I managed to show some things we haven't seen: their fancy duds, their cat, their house's exterior, and Ptooey's lecherous friend. Speaking of which, here's what he looks like --
I don't know what to name him, though. Here are some ideas --

Also, if you're inspired, add to the collection of Ptooey & Loogie strips! As before, you can draw them to look like mine, or you can draw them in whatever other style you like. You could also, if you're wildly excited, volunteer to ink and/or paint any of the existing strips. Or if you have ideas for strips, but have no time to draw them, post them here or email them to me. That way I could keep a growing collection of scriptlets, from which any of us can draw in the future, when we want to do some new P&T strips.
