Pirate Mike Goes Driving!

If I ever did this one again, I really want to show them in a garage with tools on the wall and such. But I tend to get lost when I start doing details like that in the background. It’s not my strong suit and I think the strip starts to look like mud. Folks who can do a lot of detail in a panel (again, like Al Capp & Co.) just amaze me. Obviously, they ran their strips larger, but even if I drew my strips that large, I don’t think I could pull it off. Once I get a few other things under my belt, one of long term goals is to see what I can do, if anything, with some simple backgrounds that might give the strip a better sense of place, I think.
