Toenails 6 -

Continued from:

Or you can start at the beginning:

Kaspar, being a creature of nature, is not sure what he has wrought, but just knows it feels so right.
His job is done.
His grip relaxes, releasing the ruined man thing.
With cocksure deftness he closes up the man's drawer, swings around and makes good his escape.


Hold, on wait a minute....more chemicals harken.
Slyness in the Ruthenian Bear is an adaptation to the harsh conditions of the Carpathian climate.
Clip clip clip clip clip
Snapitta clippita clippita, snip snip tyoink!



No need for these anymore. Might as well leave them for the next link in the chain of life.

One living thing's discarded keratin is another's much needed irritable

"Irritable" is much needed indeed.

Kaspar's buttocks are mesmerizing.

Jesse Rignall said...

Tippytoeing while balancing on long scraggly toenails is cringe-inducing. Yay!

Nice!

Peggy said...

Never before have I made the noises I made while looking at this. A sort of combination of giggles and wretches of disgusted, through a half-fixed grin.

Especially at the TOENAIL SHOWER drawing. Aaaaaagggh.

i have a story idea for kasper,excuse me if im overstepping my bounds but its been in my head for awhile, it probably sucks so here goes...
remember those old disney wildlife documentaries,remember the voice over and how walt disney himself would host these shows, what if you had kaspar doing the same thing?! host a suburban wildlife documentary about modern man,he would be running a film on a old projector, wearing a fez and smoking jacket, explaining the action. the man in the "film" could be an animated eddie fitzgerald, you could show him trying to work a blackberry while kaspar would intone "mans survival is often predicated on his ability to communicate...if only he can figure out how!"have a close up of cartoon eddie screwing it all up. then we could show cartoon eddie with the missus and kaspar would say "mans continued survival depends on his relations with his mate...this does not bode well for him!" cartoon eddie and his wife would argue and she could clock him with a frying pan..you get the idea..if its good please develop,if not.. .sorry! theres more but i cant take up too much space. one more idea(thers room)kaspar father comes to visit, its a surprise, mrs kaspar has thown him out, kaspar is happy to see him the only thing is kaspars dad is roughr tougher and ruder than kaspar, kaspar has to figure out a way to keep his dad happy(or else)then try to get rid of him.

God I wish I could laugh like I did just looking at those drawings when watching cartoons today. You got a real gift for storytelling John.

I tried entering the blog for several days and there was a messagem that I was not invited...now it works! I can enter and read again! Please, what can i do so that can't happen again?

You're a real inspiration. Thank you very much!

The shot of the toenails being inhaled and exhaled are going to haunt my dreams tonight. Thanks.

Steve Hogan said...

Panel #5 seemed a bit risque at first glance until I realized it was Kaspar's tail...

Alberto said...

When i saw the ranger inhale the toenails i gasped in horror, which made me laugh.

love it.

mr paal said...

Mr K, remember the kaspar background post from he cartoon college you posted a month or so ago? Did it have a follow-up post? i was looking forward to seeing the results...

I'm continuing the Popeye studies, concentrating on details of the head at the moment & figuring out the construction - he's weirdly nobbly! What are those lumps either side of his nose?!

Cheers!

Paul

The exciting part to me is that a cartoonist has found a compatible audience without pandering to a producer, an editor, or anyone. What we are seeing here folks is FUN. There is something in this for the audience and there must be something in it for John K.
I hope that the audience feedback is gratifying in the manner of applause. Bravo, John. Hooray Kaspar.

Sean said...

Haha, didn't see that coming! This is drawn on lined paper, and it isn't even animated, but it is still one of the funniest, cartooniest things I have seen in a while.

zmerrill said...

Haha! Sucks to be those guys sleeping with Kaspar's toenail clippings. Nasty but funny, this looks like it has a ton of potential.

Freckled Derelict said...

God I can't get enough!!! That tip toe, one more idea and rangers sliping panels were heavnly hilaious. Please SHOW MORE!!! I'm addicted.

Corax said...

Ah, Mother Nature is a genius. Kaspar gets to shed his winter excess and the rangers get essential dietary minerals and a reminder to change their underthings.

Balance of nature at its finest!

Gads, this was hilarious. I wasn't expecting the toenail shower.

"With cocksure deftness." Whom shall I say that with today?

Aaron Paetz said...

This story is awesome!

Muscular backs are hilarious. They just look so awkward and funny.
