I love writing wordless vocalisations. It’s a weird thing to get a kick out of but there you have it. Making up new words has a similar appeal, though it’s much harder to do and doesn’t quite have the same thrill of primal creation.
I have a plan to keep adding more and more of them into my comics until each strip relies exclusively on pictures and expressive non-words. If Becky and Izak find out they’ll probably revoke my writing privileges though (they’re great people but don’t always understand true art) so let’s keep this as our little secret.
“Listen up people, we’ve got fire retardant materials inbound; keep your head down and you should be fine.”
As a fireman walks through a blazing interior doorway a flame licks out and along his flame retardant jacket. The anthropomorphised flame looks like it’s just received a powerful electric current to its frontal lobe. “WAAAHLLLGGG”
A nearby flame is devastated. “Jimmy? Noooooo!”
Jimmy now has that vaguely sad and lost look of the mentally retarded.
