A great story about a Nashville, TN architect named Mike W. Smith who started a tradition of drawing a full-color comic on his daughter’s brown lunch bag. Six years later, he’s still doing it.
In the deal they worked out, Mike would scale back to one drawing per week. But these would be full-color, with an accompanying short story typed and printed and slipped inside the bag.
With a publication schedule that would test any father, Mike must perpetually dream up narratives and sketch ideas.
He usually begins on Sunday night. Each weeknight, after dinner and homework, he dedicates a few hours to inking, cross-hatching and coloring each story. By Thursday nights, he?s on deadline to write the accompanying narrative.
