I'm a first year beekeeper and have been lurking and getting lots of useful info here - thank you for that, everybody!

During "drawing time" with my son recently we thought it would be fun to draw comics. I went with a "bee" theme in mine. I'm not in any way a professional artist (and I realize that! :D), and these are "just for fun". I'm not sure how long I'll keep it up, but perhaps a few people will get some chuckles out of my drawings:

Yes, but I took some artistic license with the foraging pails. ;)

As long as you get the terms right, you can play around with the other stuff.

Are you saying it's not the pollen jocks doing the work? You just destroyed my entire concept of bees... ;) You know the "Bee Movie" was approved and supported by the Honey Board so it must be true... ;)

I've had more ideas for comics than I've had time to draw, I may keep it up for a while, so long as I'm having fun doing it. :)

There are a few more comics out at Bee-ing Apis (https://www.facebook.com/BeeingApis) since 8 November.

Apologies if I've violated some forum rule; apparently a second post I made may have been deleted. If I'm doing something wrong, please send me a private message and let me know, admins, so I can avoid causing problems! I'm not a spammer, and I'm not a commercial poster, I'm drawing simply for fun, and don't intend to cause problems.

I just wanted to mention that since 11/16, I've posted up 4 new comics. I hope people enjoy reading them as much as I enjoyed drawing them.

I like those. Not sure if non-beekeepers would but... who cares. They're funny to me. Keep up the good work.

Rhull, you're getting better at it. The Frames one cracked me up!

Thanks! Scanning and doing the coloring digitally doesn't come naturally to me, but I have to admit that it looks cleaner than using colored pencils to color and then scanning the picture.

"Team Pay-Back", the frames one, is my latest completed one. It took me a while to draw out that living room. :-)

These are getting good enough that you need to consider publishing them. A day-by-day calendar or a small book?

Surely the "Bee flew in ear" thread is good for several. Or the bees trying to move kernels of corn. Perhaps the bees would like to explain their fondness for coffee grounds in our compost heap?

These have gotten quite good.

I've been following a science fiction webcomic called "Freefall", which ties to a forum called the Cross Time Cafe. Have you ever looked into publishing as a proper webcomic?
