Cartoon No. 20 - Summertime

Potpot: "I don't know how to swim but I like to wade in the water.
I hope I'll see someone cute ... acheche!"

IT'S SUMMERTIME! Where will you be?

When I started drawing Potpot for the 1st time, I was deliberating whether or not she'll sport a long or short hair. At the time, the long hair won. But I had a change of heart ... so to speak. I cut my hair short a few days after we celebrated the coming of 2009. I've been maintaining its length ever since. I know I've been lagging in my posts here and I needed to take a break from an illustration work I accepted. As I drew Potpot, I decided to give her a haircut. She's now short-haired! Still cute nevertheless. Haha!

I still don't have plans for the summer but I'm hoping I'll have the opportunity to enjoy the beach. I recently went to Pagudpud in Ilocos and I wasn't able to maximize my stay there. First of all, the waves were wild and since I didn't know how to swim, the water became a little scary for me. Worst, there were no lifeguards in sight so I just stayed very near the shoreline.

See more of Potpot in summer action in succeeding cartoons!

cool haircut potpot!
i totally agree, waves in ilocos are probably for surfers more than leisure swimmers! but its beautiful to take a long drive there.
when i saw you at rockwell rins, i thought your hair looked great!

I hope Potpot finds her soul mate this time and the beach can turn out for a romantic setting too! Go Potpot!

And there should be lifeguards in Pagudpud... for the safety and a little bit of eye candy :D

Thanks Mitzi! I was dazed when I saw you and Reg at Rockwell. Couldn't even find a topic for small talk. :( But yes, the long drive would have been great. My friends was very polite so I was often at the backseat enjoying the sites.


Waffle! Thanks for visiting my site again. Can't wait for your next strip. I hope I can make one for Potpot too one of these days. :P

I like it better if I'm behind the wheel. Weird noh? I like the feeling of being in control, figuratively speaking.

Good luck! I didn't know you decided to be a pediatrician. Parang ang cool maging doctor to kids. :)
