Thursday, September 10, 2015 Extra: Gorilla in the Midst


This was an extra comic for last week. It's based on a recent fight between a company called NYC Mesh and internet goliath Time Warner Cable. The idea behind NYC Mesh is that high speed internet could be decentralized, eliminating the need for behemoth providers like Time Warner Cable. Time Warner Cable, apparently, is not fond of this idea.

I was asked by the crew at to draw a parody of the famous scene in "King Kong" (wherein the movie's namesake is batting at planes from atop a skyscraper). Only in this one, I was asked to draw the gorilla yanking at an NYC Mesh dish and wearing a cape with the Time Warner logo.

Here's the sketch:

And here's the final:

This comic was SO much fun. Partially because I don't have the opportunity to draw giant, angry gorillas as often as you might think. I was sorry when I finished this comic. Like a great book or delicious piece of cake, the end came too soon.
