Unlaughable jokes

Another item from my very old sketchbook. I had planned to make a series of single panel comics that were unlaughable. So unlaughable that they were amusing. They would make you feel like the joke was leading  you somewhere but the punchline was somewhere else when you got there. The idea was derived while thinking of half-baked advertising concepts. Actually, they could be harder to think of than funny comics.

An old comic in my very old sketchbook that I never finished. Lost steam towards the end. But this was written while I was still working at an advertising agency.

Calling all sketchers! OIC and USK is holding a night sketchwalk on August 27, this friday night. Our meeting point will be at  Heartroom Gallery, Block 44 Owen Road, #01-311. Please arrive at 6.30pm for light refreshments hosted by the gallery owner. At around 7.30pm, we will sketch along race course road and hopefully to sketch a chinese opera happening around that time. We will conclude the sketchwalk with a supper meal at 9pm at the hawker center along Owen Rd. Please call Andrew 91070735 or Tia 96968080 if you get lost or need more information. If you are planning on arriving late, please look for us at the opera stage around the area or just call us.
ps: tips for sketching at night: Bring black ink brush or thick marker, a midtone colour (eg. grey, red, blue, or diluted ink. line hatching will also do.), and opaque white (liquid paper or white colour pencil or pen will do. This is extremely helpful for dotting windows or street lamps at night.). Draw a simple outline of what you see. Squint your eyes. See the scene only though those three shades - Black, midtone, and white. And fill in the shapes on paper. Keep it simple.
