    I like this. It’s moody and atmospheric . . .

    I like the wadded paper metaphor and the passage of time

    OK, let’s get real here…He is garage band member and a cartoonist and you think what he lights is a cigarette?

    It’s a cigar, actually. And it’s a rarity for me! Thanks for watching out for my lungs!

    I am a relative newcomer to this comic, and I must say I am finding it intriguing, thought provoking, and charming. The art work is also quite inspired and artistic in both form and in vantage point. And, there is nothing wrong with a cigar once in a while… I enjoy them occasionally, myself. Although, as my nick would suggest, I tend to prefer pipe tobacco. Thank you, Dan, for your efforts here!

    I’m not that worried about your lungs. It is your mouth and throat at risk as well as the health of those about you as you smoke. However, I appreciate the fact that Beardo is enjoying his cigar outdoors and away from other people. Also, cigar smokers probably aren’t as at risk as cigarette smokers because of the volume of tobacco they consume is lower and does not have the paper and dye fumes that exist from burning tobacco.
    That aside, the smell of good cigars and pipe tobacco is pleasant. It is a shame that the smell of it, whether it is burnt or not, irritates my sinuses.

    I just wonder. Could this piece of paper be the wadded up song that he wrote that was declared a terrible in an earlier strip? And if it is, could it be picked up and performed by another musician for fame and fortune? That would be about right for poor Beardo. He is an artist, and too often artist do not get the recognition, whether it be fame or money, in their lifetime.

    But this leads to many upset feelings I have concerning the inequities of life that are applied to artists.

    Love the b&w artwork. Are you using watercolors or diluted inks?
    Looks too good to be created in a computer.

    Actually I did recently see a guy light up a blunt and walk down a city neighborhood street.
