The Amazing Chase

The Amazing Chase was an attempt by me to try something different on the site. I wanted to stretch my writing ability as well as work on some character development by using characters who appeared semi-regularly on the site. I had been drawing single panel cartoons for almost 3 years by then and I needed to try something different. I had tried a number of stories (The‘Ninja school’ and ‘The Origin of Mungo’ stories) but wanted to involve more of my semi regular characters and they story evolved from there.

 This was my first attempt to draw Dr Gregory House (Hugh Laurie). I wasn’t very happy with how it came out (I felt it didn’t fit with the tone of the strip) and later changed his loo

Way back in Part 8, I introduced Dr Gregory House (Hugh Laurie) in to the story and mentioned I didn’t like the way I had depicted him. This is his second appearance in the chase and is closer to the character design I had in mind.

Aaah The Homer (Simpsons fans will get the reference). Was there ever a better car built?

And there you have it! After 30 strips into the story, I decided that (even though I still had another 30 strips planned) using other copyrighted material was probably not a good thing in the long term (especially once the site began to take off). Regretfully, the story came to a close at Part 30.  Each ‘toon took four times the effort to complete over mY usual single panel stuff and whilst the point of the story was to stretch my abilities and attempt some character development, it was at a cost to everything else I was doing.

Every so often I daydream about how I could continue the story by removing all the issues and I think I’ll go back to it in the future. Hope you enjoyed the story.
