Comic + Blog = Clog. Prophetic hallucinations in the form of mediocre 4 panel comic strips, Feat. The titular mechanical noggin Drone and equally titular unicellular lifeform Amoeba. Numbered blocks are based on the wonderful ’99 ways to tell a story: Exercises in style’ by Matt Madden (In turn inspired by Raymond Queneau’s ‘Exercises in style’); a story told in many different ways, exploring the boundaries of storytelling, imagery and text inside a tiny space. Created mostly using MS paint.

#8 Build your own Drone & Amoeba Clog
To construct your own Drone & Amoeba Clog comic strip you will need:
A computer with a printer
Some scissors (you may need an adult to assist)
A piece of plain paper
A black pen
What to do:
Print out the component sheet four (4) times. Cut around the Drone and Amoeba characters and shelf components (ask an adult to help). On the plain sheet of paper use the ruler and black marker to draw out four panel boxes (the ones on the sheet are just for show) one on top of the other in a column. Arrange the characters in your panels and stick them in place with the glue. Use the pen to copy the letters in the appropriate positions for the text.
There you have it, your very own Drone & Amoeba Clog strip to keep and enjoy. Why not put it on the wall or make it into a birthday card for an old person?
If you like, you could even make your own story up! E-mail them to the Clog and we will put the best up in our gallery. Good luck!
