"[W]hen I start painting I think of where's the water. You don't necessarily see the water, but that's the first thing I think about. You already have air, or you'd be dead. You have a while to find water. In the paintings, that's what I think about. That's the first moment, anyway. "

Steven Weissman was on a birthday bender last week and didn't turn in his "Chocolate Cheeks" strip... Actually, we just skipped a week because I was at MoCCA in NY and wasn't able to update the site. In any event, Ribs says "Here's this week's strip: ripped from the headlines!" (Remember, you must be registered and logged in to read.)
