Ideas for American Elf comic strips
American Elf is a strip by Vermont cartoonist laureate James Kochalka. The strip is a sort of daily diary of Kochalka’s life, and in my head it was funny to ignore that fact and treat it as if it were a totally fictional strip and offer some advice on how to make it better, an idea inspired by some of the more mundane strips…
I envisioned starting a blog where I would write up, scan and post my ideas for James to peruse, but I worried that it would be taken too seriously and offend more than it was intended to (as is the case with most of the jokes I make), so I slept on it. However, American Elf is over (although James is still very active), so why not share it? Maybe James will become inspired to resurrect the strip.
