Reply Elaine Wu says: October 25, 2009 at 5:25 PM That Kat has pretty good ideas…….or are they Telly's ideas??? Oh whatever, Let's just all be AWESOME!;-J Reply AmberM says: October 25, 2009 at 8:45 PM I LOVE this, Jaime. Reply A MacLean says: October 25, 2009 at 8:49 PM This is gorgeous. James Baker says: October 25, 2009 at 8:52 PM I am really glad to hear that you liked it, Amber. I have had images of these two riding around inside my head for years and I never did anything with them because I couldn’t quite figure out who they are… Until recently that is, when I realised that BACKSTORY doesn’t really matter in a nonsense book anyway. I have more stuff I want to do with them, so stay tuned. Victoria Baker says: October 25, 2009 at 9:03 PM I like it!!! Especially the last one. Reply James Baker says: October 26, 2009 at 10:53 AM Thanks everyone. I am so happy to hear that you like it. I put this together in a few days but I've had these guys riding around inside my mind for years. The mini was designed it so that it doesn't really matter which order the pages are assembled in, and I made several random variations for the APE show, but this is the order I had in mind at the start. I hope to do more with these two characters later. Reply Richard Moore says: October 26, 2009 at 1:23 PM So nice to revisit the mind of Jamie Baker. Always a pleasure. Reply Brandon Ragnar Johnson says: October 26, 2009 at 3:54 PM These are fantastic. Reply Scott Tolmie says: October 26, 2009 at 9:19 AM some of the best cartoons i've ever seen in my life. Reply Mary Latham says: October 27, 2009 at 3:15 AM Brilliant James! Just as talented as you always were. I'm in the process of changing jobs this week so "leaving on my own terms" certainly resonates. I hope you don't mind if I quote you in my farewell speech. Reply Peter Simpson says: October 29, 2009 at 7:40 PM very cool James! Reply Anson Jew says: November 8, 2009 at 1:15 PM K & T is awesomeness of the highest magnitude! Great to hear there will be more to come! Reply jason says: November 10, 2009 at 2:50 PM that was awesome. beautiful art work and captions. especially that “deep” one. Reply Big Ed says: November 21, 2009 at 11:25 PM Oh Man Oh MAn. Jaime, cut it out , dude. This stuff is priceless. Gem after gem. I like how the first three set the scene and let you know to sit back and enjoy. But, just the sheer economy of cartoon language is so lovely to see. Good craft should always appear so fluid and enjoyed by it’s craftsman. Seems like by pulling their maxims and creeds out of your head, you get to explore why you like them and leads to something good. Work that, J! Reply James Baker says: November 24, 2009 at 1:50 AM Anson, Jason & Ed>> thank you so much for your comments about this. I want to do more with these two and you are right ED, that just following some more bons mots wherever they may lead is the right path to take. More soon! Reply (GE) says: January 26, 2021 at 10:32 AM James! These are all terrific — but the one that floats my boat is the television cat’s admonition about being flattered by idiots. That, and the one about skin, beauty, depth, and Truth. You, sir, are a philosopher who can draw like nobody’s business!

Such substance! 😀 Reply James Baker says: February 6, 2021 at 12:29 PM Ha! Thanks, Aaron!
