Under where?

Okay, so I may have “accidentally” started the fire… I mean who hasn’t? Who is this guy to throw around blame – and then get all personal…

Good FRIDAY morning!!

Hope you have a great day and weekend! Next week we wrap up a few storylines into a nice neat little bundle…

Here’s a sketch I did during a meeting this week.

Rescue - Unnamed fireman saves Rick - from himself...

Finally, because I aim to disappoint, here is some requested Andy Warhol-esque artwork featuring Rick the Stick. Please be forewarned – this artwork may not be suitable for everyone – especially monkeys with delicate sensibilities. I would suggest not viewing this after you’ve eaten. It is very safe for work – unless you work in a very tall building with thin windows you can jump out of. Okay, have I set the bar low enough? Here you go!

Thanks for dropping by!

Some Guy, Any Guy

Okay, so I learned a lot today. Any guy can start a fire, and firemen are not to be messed with. Especially if you want something…

Only You Can Prevent Forest Fires

There was a fire. Me? I’m a problem solver. I like to get to the bottom of things. I won’t rest until…what’s that you say? What was I doing? I…err…um…

Good morning!

Today’s comic features a character ‘homage’ to some of the bravest people I know from my hometown – fire fighters. The brave people who “volunteer” their service at the fire department in Hillburn, New York have had a great impact on me. Growing up, I would emulate fire fighting scenes with a friend – right down to the call from the main dispatch as well as the specific tones that would broadcast a call (from 44-control) on the scanner – I think I still know them by heart! Nerdy, but cool and some great memories. My friend, Irving, whom I shared those reenactments with as a child, actually went on to become Fire Chief – and comes from a great family of fire fighters.

The firehouse was a modest, but awesome place. I remember playing floor hockey in the gym, and many celebrations downstairs in the kitchen/great room area (which also conveniently features a full bar – woohoo!). Some of my fathers best friends worked tirelessly there for many years – and some still do. These volunteers share an incredible passion that has been passed down generations and involves entire families. In my opinion, it is one of the greatest threads in the fabric of that small community – only six streets wide – nestled among the Ramapo mountains and river and conveniently located within a couple of historic thoroughfares. I remember a few mountain brush fires that consumed the interest of the town during a couple of summers. The fire department, after fighting the blaze for weeks, came away weary – but victorious. House fires were rare, but regardlessly handled professionally. The duplex next to the one I grew up in caught fire and burned to the ground. It also took victim our old side of the house. Although it had been some years since we had lived there, it still was enough to make me sad.

Getting back to my point – today’s fire fighting character (temporarily nameless) is no one specific, but I would like to think a compilation of those great people that mean so much to my hometown. While my dad has been a great influence in my work ethic and showing respect to those who deserve it, I would like to think that I learned community from some of the kind, caring and generous people of the Hillburn Fire Department.

I’ve reconnected with some old friends – and if they read today’s strip (actually through Friday), I hope they get a kick out it. I would also like to offer a sincere thank you to them – and all volunteer fire fighters – for their selfless time and effort helping to keep our hometowns… my hometown safe.

Smoke Screen

Today I got tackle a fire. Kind of. Actually, things didn’t go according to plan – much… or at all…

Good morning!

More wallpaper – I got really behind on the strips this weekend (despite working on the comic all weekend long), so here’s another wallpaper I did to commemorate coming up on 450 Rick the Sticks next week, or the week after… Anywho – let me know what you think!

Not really relevant, but I wanted to have another movie poster up there as wallpaper. You understand...
