Are you managed or monitored?
Shiny things collected by an easily distracted marine biologist. There will likely be fish, critters, science, other people's art, fannish stuffs (mostly of a science fictiony or cartoonish nature), teapots, things that make me laugh, and occasionally, kids.

“Pardon Me, but who am I?”
“Right, got it.”
“We’re Filth! We’re Fitlh! We Come From Filth! We’re Going to Filth!”
“You know, we were thinking; just what exactly does that mean? Why do we have to go to Filth?”
“Yeah, why couldn’t we go the Bahamas?” ( x )
He also has friends that are dogs. Something like Goofy and Pluto, I guess…
Ok, my kids liked both the books and show, although it’s one of those where everyone learns a lesson in standing up for yourself, or getting your homework done, or don’t be a bitch to your friends or they won’t help you out when you need it. They grew out of it quite a while ago.
All the characters animals; the thing I found funny is that, while it’s kind of hard to tell, Arthur and his family are meant to be aardvarks. When Angus checked out the first book in the series from the school library, they were all drawn with long noses. For some reason, they were changed, so they look somewhat human, except for the ears. A bit ironic, since he tells me the book dealt with him being unhappy with how his nose looked, but eventually learning to be proud of it.

Uh. It’s very wrong that my first thought was Henchman 21, isn’t it?
Yes, I KNOW it’s not, Tick came first, 21 is totally a rip ON Arthur, Jackson wrote for the live action show, etc. But this so feels like the Ouroboros here!
Hi. Hello. You don’t know me, and you may not even see this comment, but I’m Benito. I wrote the comic this image is from.
The answer to your question is actually “kind of.” I haven’t had cable in years, so I’ve only seen the first two and a half or so seasons of Venture Bros. When I described Orson here (originally seen in the Tick: Golden Age mini-series, but more recently in The Tick New Series 5-6 as a younger man) to artist Les McClaine, he was supposed to be a grizzled, beefy, time-and-war-torn kind of guy, similar to Cable (except with a mummy gorilla arm instead of a bionic one). Les, who had done a better job of keeping up with the Ventures, showed me a sketch he had previously done of Henchman 21 and said, “Kind of like that?” and I said, “Yeah, kind of like that.”
So, yeah. You’re not entirely wrong. Henchman 21 wasn’t the inspiration for the character, but he did have some influence on the final look.
I thought he looked kind of familar, although I feel like I should have known for both Arthur and 21. Oh damn, I have a lot to catch up on, don’t I? I hope some are in graphic novel format. Yeah, haven’t even visited the NEC website in ages…
Coming in September!
TICK #101, guest-starring Mike Allred’s MADMAN! (Also Dr Flem is in it.)
Art by Les McClaine. (edit: Whoops, these are pencils, not the final lineart. See that here: http://t.co/gDa9ZAce )
I’ll post the colored and logo-ed up version as soon as I have it.
Arthur, what happened?!
20120104 Arthur, The Tick’s side kick, sketch lunch bag for my son. Both of my sons are enjoying The Tick cartoon from 1994-96 and now the original comic books.
Now I feel even lazier, because I just send mine to school with lunch money.
