Dave!I'm wrecked!

Today I took two shifts live-blogging over at Therapy in the Making to raise money for Doctors Without Borders during Blogathon 2009.

Since I am a pretty crappy writer, I came up with the brillaint idea of drawing a new DaveToon every 30 minutes for my two 2-hour shifts. This didn't seem like a big deal, because they only take ten to fifteen minutes to draw once I come up with an idea. And when I'm writing for Blogography, the ideas for the toons just pop in my head as I sit down to blog...

But sitting down cold with no ideas and trying to come up with a new DaveToon every half hour?

It's a lot more difficult than it sounded.

Each and every time I was in a full-blown panic as I rushed to finish before the posting deadline. But it was all worth it because Doctors Without Borders is an amazing organization. And just because Blogathon 2009 is nearly over doesn't mean you can't still donate to support the great work they do for people all over the world...

DAVETOON: Thanks for sponsoring us!


If you missed Blogathon, I'm re-running all eight of the DaveToons I made...

DAVETOON: This is Lil' Dave, here to raise money for Doctors Without Borders!

DAVETOON: Do you have anything to add Bad Monkey? (no response)

DAVETOON: Yeah... he doesn't do much around here!


DAVETOON: GAH! You're not ready! We're going to be late for our flight to Blogathon!

DAVETOON: Bring ONLY what you need to survive a 10 hour flight!

The rest are in an extended entry. Be sure to check them out after the jump!

DAVETOON: Doctors Without Borders helps people all over the world. BAD MONKEY: OOK?

DAVETOON: Err... how bad would you freak out if I said they DIDN'T help monkeys?

DAVETOON: Okay, Doctors Without Borders also helps monkeys!


DAVETOON: Is there a problem? TSA AGENT: No. We screen all naked primates that set off the metal detector.

DAVETOON: TSA Agent pulls a gun out of Bad Monkey's bum.

DAVETOON: Airplane in flight. I really wish you wouldn't do that anymore.


DAVETOON: In plane: please put your seat-backs in the upright position!

DAVETOON: Sorry for the poop-throwing incident in First Class...

DAVETOON: Lil' Dave says "Next time you're going in a pet carrier!"


DAVETOON: London. Says here that Palace Guards can't show any emotion.

DAVETOON: What do you mean "even if I pee on them?"



DAVETOON: We're at Colin's house... be nice!

DAVETOON: Hey Lil' Colin! Hey Lil' Dave!

DAVETOON: Bad Monkey poops on the porch! Sorry, Blogathon is over!


DAVETOON: I can't believe you pooped on Colin's porch and got us kicked out of Blogathon!

DAVETOON: This is the worst thing you've ever done, Bad Monkey!

DAVETOON: Aw, you're giving me your banana? Wanna go poop on the gum-smacking whore before we leave?


Thanks again, and I'll see you next year!

    The 30 minute deadline makes it so much more stressful. I discovered the same. I can write a lot better and easier when I’m not worrying about meeting a deadline. Unless it’s coursework for Uni.

    These were great! Thank you so much for doing this with us and helping raise money for Doctors Without Borders.

  2. Hilly says:

    I loved your toons over at Colin’s House of Hotness! I think you are all admirable for staying up and doing all of those posts for such a worthy cause.

  3. Poppy says:

    And while you did this I slept. 🙂 But thank you for the opportunity to donate!

    DaveToons are classic, even in 30 min shifts.

  5. These are so great! I wish I was near a computer at the time to have seen how they were all made.

  6. Jacki says:

    Nice to see daveAIR is still flying.

  7. Love, love, love the one where Lil Monkey pulls out the gun as all he’ll need for the flight. My feelings exactly!

    These are awesome, Dave. I hate that I missed the event!

  8. whall says:

    Cool. Lil Dave looks like Cartman in that one panel.

  9. MOISH says:


    Cool comics, I just loved the concept of surviving a flight. Waiting for more…
