    Good one. TH. Tell me more about your cartoons. Also, where did your moniker Tank Hughes come from?

  • I started Monday Comics in January 2010, along with a lot of other projects (like tagging convowel on Wordnik). It's the one new year's I've taken seriously as an impetus for a fresh start. I started the comic because I had a lot of mediocre jokes & ideas that I was waiting on to ripen, but they weren't ripening, they were just taking up brainspace. By posting rough drafts of their potential, I could let them go and make room for more (and possibly better) jokes & ideas. Thus: I keep doing it. It keeps everything moving. I have pages and pages of unpublished ideas and they are all terrible and I try to keep them quarantined from the public.

    TankHughes comes from my last name, Hughes, and my love of the WWII tank aesthetic. The combination came from a typo during an AIM chat in high school. Additionally, I like that Tank Hughes sounds very tough and militaristic, but if you say it outloud, it's a cute baby voice thanking you. One time, comedian Doug Benson said it outloud and the whole audience got it:

    Thank you for asking. Why are you curious?
