Ernie and Friends

Back Home

   Ernie and Friends was my first serious attempt at a comic. At the time my major inspirations were Calvin and Hobbes and Garfield, so these are very similar, but drawn much more poorly. When I knew I wanted to make some characters for this I grabbed some of my own, along with Ernie, whom I found out about from a friend named Erin. She had created Ernie for her own amusement, but I wanted to draw a comic for her.
   This was a long time ago., Before Keenspace was even around. I thought I was creating something new by putting comics online. After a while some characters from the Yooki Adventures snuck in. and that was that.
   These are dated and old, but I collected as much as I could find anyway. There were about 200, but I could only find around 30. I still sort of like the charm and innocence behind these, but the art... Well, you be the judge.
