Ice Bucket Challenge!
Bill Amend, creator of Foxtrot, just issued this challenge to cartoonists and comic creators. Therefore, Dil (vicariously) hearby issues a challenge to the following webcomic characters:
Dawn from Furry Experience - I don't know why exactly... I guess because Dawn usually seems so calm and collected, I think it would be funny to see her taken out of her comfort zone... like waaaaay out!
Seth from Peter and Company - Similar reason as Dawn, except even more so. I don't think I've ever once seen Seth loose his composure. Not saying I think a bucket of ice water is going to do the trick (would it even work on guardians?) but I think it would be fun to see.
Wolf from Nine to Nine - Of the three characters challenged, Wolf is probably the one who deserves it the most. What with all his shenanigans, it probably wouldn't hurt for him to cool off a bit. Knowing wolf though, he'd probly find a way to make it... interesting.
If you're unfamiliar with the "Ice Bucket Challenge," take a look at this article. (Seriously, what's not on wikipedia these days?) In a nutshell, it's to raise awareness about ALS/Lou Gehrig's disease, and even donations for the ALS Association. It also happens to be the hottest thing (anti-pun not intended) circulating the interwebs at the moment, so I figured I'd actually jump on the train this time around!
To those who I've challenged, I know I kind of put you on the spot and that you probably don't know me very well (if at all) but let me curry your favor by saying that I've loved reading the comics you've created, which is one reason I chose you. I also think it would be lots of fun to have comic characters challenging each other and it could also do a lot of good at the same time; just think of how many people we could reach! So I challenge you to draw a quick comic of your character performing the ice bucket challenge (doesn't have to be a big thing; I mean, look at mine!) and if you feel so inclined, pass the challenge along to others as well!
Thanks for considering!
