It’s saturday, so it’s time for another silly drawing. Today, you get to learn how to become a naked fatty yourself. As you can see, it’s gruelling regimen but with a little work you’ll be able to pull it off. I’m still working on step three.

So yesterday I started playing around with Inkscape to convert one of my silly pencil sketches into something that looked a little bit more finished. Today, I finished that off. The second frame took a tiny amount of time compared to the first, especially once I found out how to copy and paste objects as vectors rather than bitmaps. (Hint, it’s an X11 “issue”).
So, today’s sketch is about Those Running Shoes that make you feel as though you’re not wearing any footwear at all. Obviously, it’s entirely the sort of thing that naked fatty would endorse, so he did.
This was going to be an incredibly funny strip that would have made everyone laugh huge belly laughs. Instead, it turned into me taking several hours to turn the first frame into a vector graphic in Inkscape. It didn’t help that it crashed after the first hour of me tinkering, leaving me having to start again.
But I persevered, and generated an image in the end. Isn’t it grand? The font, more so that I don’t forget than anything else, is Blambot’s free Web Letterer.
My third post, and the first one to be drawn by a guest. The wonderful Carlo drew this for us, and I’ve learnt a lot from him.
Now, if you want to get in on the act, I accept all comers. Just draw a naked fat man and you get a place here on the site.
Yes, that’s an Izzard reference in there. I’d forgotten all about the evil herbivores.
And yes, elephants really do have amazing penises.
