Last week I had mentioned that Cul de Sac’s Richard Thompson contributed often to his blog.  Now according to the Drawn! blog, he has started daily posts with thye latest Cul De Sac strip with commentary. Hopefully he keeps this up.

A while back I discovered a few Cul de Sac animations on Youtube. They were produced by Ring Tales and I assumed they were from some pilot project. I was happy to find out how many animations were created:

I’ve been meaning to post a reference to Richard Thompson’s comic strip, Cul de Sac for a while now. You won’t find it in your newspaper colour supplement, which is an unforgivabnle sin. Even if you used every ounce of generosity within yourself, it would be difficult to come up with a dozen acceptable comic strips, never mind actual good comic strips, and yet you have to go to the interwebs to find Cul de Sac.  It has everything a great strip needs: well-developed characters, great draftsmanship and it is actually funny! Thompson’s blog is worth checking out, back ground on his strips, extra artwork and he updates it regularly.
