Puck originally started as a university newspaper comic way back in the prehistoric days of 1998. It was reborn in 2011, and is now running weekly, in color. You can see the original run of eighty strips AND the new colour strips all here!
This strip is #45 in a series dating from my university days. Puck ran weekly for three full years in the Silhouette, McMaster University’s student newspaper.
The nudity saga ends with a whimper. And a whole bunch of bums.
At the time this strip ran, a female friend of mine used to always laugh with disgust whenever Colin appeared in any state of undress. “Look at him!” she scoffed. “He’s such a skinny, little twerp.” And I suppose that’s the point. He ain’t impressing the ladies with his physique.
I love the way you, and a lot of artists honestly, handle "nudity without indecency". The placement of body parts/objects, the use of angles to hide "naughty bits" and the use of posing illustrate how the beautiful the body can be without being dirty about it. You captured that well, in my book.
