[ Samples Home ] [ Todd Ramsell Bio] [Contact Info]

These pages are samples for my upcoming weekly comic Lollygag. This site was designed specifically for editors and art directors to preview Lollygag and see if it is a good fit for their publication (of course it is!). These strips have neither appeared in print yet, nor have they been seen by the general public on my Polypop comix site.

If you are interested in carrying Lollygag now or in the future (in better economic times) or if you have any questions please contact me at todd@polypop.com. Please feel free to e-mail and just let me know what you think, I'm looking for feedback from the newsweekly community. I'm also available for freelance illustraton work if you are interested, you can see my portfolio here.

Special note: These 10 strips are displayed large for the web but can reproduce well down to 4.75" wide x 5.5" tall. A standard width for many strips such as "This Modern World" and "Tom the Dancing Bug." I would be glad to send printed samples at that size if you are concerned about how it reduces and readability.
