Missing Lincoln

And now there is yet another idea to add to the stable of my random concepts for comics--comics being those thingst that I never get off my rear and actually MAKE, whether I have good ideas or not. Alas, the newest project I've been developing is called "Missing Lincoln", and it chronicles the misadventures of our 16th President as he's lost in a strange, fantastic world along with his sidekick, Log. This all is happening, of course, around the same time we thought he was "assassinated" (but he wasn't really--he just went missing--get it?) This post features some of the early preliminary sketches I've done with the idea. Presumably they'll continue to evolve a bit more as I develop it further--IF I develop it further. Time, as always will tell. For now, enjoy the sketches.

And just for fun, I've included a handful of my favorite Abraham Lincoln quotes:

"It has been my experience that folks who have no vices have very few virtues."

"Tact is the ability to describe others as they see themselves."

"Your own resolution to success is more important than any one other thing."

"Determine that a thing can and shall be done, and then we shall find the way."

"If I had eight hours to cut down a tree, I'd spend six sharpening my axe."

"I care not for a man's religion whose dog or cat are not the better for it."

"Common looking people are the best in the world; that is the reason the Lord makes so many of them."

"Am I not destroying my enemies when I make friends of them?"

"People are about as happy as they make up their minds to be."

"Truth is generally the best vindication against slander."

"No matter how much cats fight, there always seems to be plenty of kittens."

"Marriage is neither heaven nor hell. It is simply purgatory."

And the quote that perhaps sadly explains my own lack of a relationship:
"I can never be satisfied with anyone who would be blockhead enough to have me."

Once again, Andrew, You have achieved awesomeness! I really wanna see Missing Lincoln in sequential form, so please continue with them! And I freaking LOVE his quotes as well. I may use a few of them.

Thanks guy and gal. Glad you like the Lincolness. And yeah, those quotes are quite fantastic, aren't they?

Awesome and or "Awesomeness"
seems to be the word to describe these.

I feel no different.
Lincoln in a Hawaiian shirt? Genius.
