#62: Journey to the Bottom of Soapy the Chicken



We take a brief break from our current “storyline” to introduce a new part of Soapy the Chicken’s Cartoonist Outreach Program.

Cartoonist Scott McCloud introduced the concept of the “infinite canvas” of the digital cartoon… the idea being that since you can scroll to areas off the screen for as long as an image exists, there is no limitation to the size of the individual comic strip. A big idea, indeed.

It was inevitable that soon the “infinite cartoon character” would come along.

Soapy the Chicken is presumed infinite… no one has seen what lies below Soapy’s neck… or if they have they never returned to tell about it.

Could Soapy be truly infinite? Let us find out. This page is a journey down Soapy’s neck to see what lies below. And you can help us in this quest.

Assistance is easy… download the template image here, edit it, and send it back to us to add to the journey below.

Perhaps someday, together, we can all reach Soapy’s bottom.

A few guidelines…

1) Soapy’s neck must be at the points indicated at the top and bottom of the template image.
2) Let us know your name, so you can be credited appropriately if your image is used.
3) If you include a website, we’ll link your image to it.

Email completed images to mrmonkey23 at hotmail.com (replace the “at” with a @… I’m trying to avoid spam).

Contact us here to find out where to send images to.

And so our journey begins…
