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).
And so our journey begins…
Today’s post uses the Macromedia Flash plugin, so if you can’t view it, you’ll need to download it here. Also, it is very likely not to show up in your newsreader… you’ll probably have to view it directly on the soapythechicken.com website here.
Soapy made his fourth guest appearance yesterday in Fiddlestix by M.J. Click on the image below to go there (Soapy’s near the bottom of the page, so you can read your way down & get to know Grizzle and Irving).
If you didn’t know already, any cartoonist can put Soapy in their strip who wants to or just can’t help themselves, and we’ll promote the guest appearance here… for more information, read about Soapy’s Cartoonist Outreach Program.
