: On the Pot
Apr 3, 2006

Nothing like walking in on someone sitting on the pot. Witnessing them right there on their own little throne in their most private and relaxed moment of Zen.

Also I’m not sure what the thing is with reading on the pot. Perhaps it’s just the most accessible form of entertainment while we are in that special moment. Maybe some prefer to play their gameboy, maybe some like to write, and yet others maybe eat their lunch there… but that seems pretty gross and yet at the same time like a cool little self-contained factory production system.

What is it that is so comfortable about just sitting there hanging out? Maybe it’s that freedom, that freedom that if we just want to drop a load… we can. As toddlers we were trained and molded until we didn’t just empty the shoot any time we wanted in our pants. But sitting there on the pot, nothing is stopping us, the toddler is back in full power.

I think I will try an experiment some day, I think I’ll bring my sketchbook and maybe some books and just hang out on the pot, even not having to go. See how much more I might enjoy my time, see how productive I am creating comics, just always knowing… you know… I can do my business unrestrained… If I want.

Heh, okay, enough potty talk. Tomorrow I’ll have the latest on Antarctic news and global warming. Also this week I’ll have new wallpapers and discuss some of the live cam feeds I’ve been adding to the sidebar.

Me Time

A reminder if you have a My Space account you can add me. Still messing around having fun with it and figuring out what to do with one. Also I haven’t been updating it too much yet but I have a LiveJournal account too. I need to start posting some new art and projects I’ve been working on and will soon.

One thing I just did recently was a guest comic for Ugly Hill, it’s over there now if you want to check it out. I’ll post more about it on my LiveJournal page here sometime later today.


  1. RW says:

    Yep, I know what ya mean with that incrdible feling of freedom : )

  2. I totally mentioned the Ugly Hill guest strip before you did! (check yesterday’s comments) 🙂


  3. Gwen says:

    That should be “throne” in the first paragraph and not “thrown”.

  4. Alexander says:

    Whatever, nice one T.

  6. Sev says:

    Aw crap, man.

    Every time I look at anything you’ve ever drawn forevermore I’m going to think that maybe you drew it while on the can.

  7. RW says:

    Aw crap,

    now that you said that, I’m gona think that too!

  8. bobo says:

    I wonder if thats a real or snow toilet. 😕

  9. Tyler Martin says:

    I saw that Will, that’s how I knew it was up for today, you’re totally on top of things. =)

    Gwen, thanks. That’s my worst spelling error, I don’t often mispell words, so spelling checks don’t catch it, I just always right (write) the word the way it is spelled for an alternate meaning. (I believe there is a word for that but I can’t think of what they are called off the top of my head.)

    Haha Sev. =)

    Bobo, yup, a snow toilet… or ice even.

  10. bobo says:

    80 Tyler Martin said my name (sort of) 80 and that salt water would hurt.

  11. bobo says:

    dang dumb smiles dont work! 80

  12. Lee says:

    Opticians do not recommend the use of salt water for cleansing traumatic visions.

  13. bobo says:

    so many big words ahhhhhhhhhh! 8o

  14. You says:

    Every has someone walk in on you when your going to the bathroom its like “Dosen’t anyone knock anymore”.

  15. Ashley says:

    lol that just cracks me up! 😀

  16. Did you come up with this while sitting on the pot?

  17. rocketgrrl says:

    WOW what a difference in drawing styles…. very intriging! i always find it facinating to see an artist use another style… one tends to think they always draw the same “way”. Thanks for the guest comic tyler 🙂

  18. BriaN says:

    I think its funny that Sev and Bobo said oh crap. Yeah I’ve done that whole sitting on the toliet even though I don’t have to just to to look for inspiration thing it worked…

    hey Tyler, wheres the new OTR? pleeeeaaaaase! 😀

  28. Lee says:

    If you look carefully you’ll see that it says “Comix”, which is a commonly-used misspelling of “Comics”, especially referring to titles from independent publishers.

  29. Phill says:

    A snow toilet 😯 There’s a cold toilet seat!
    I took a book into the can once, but It got uncomfortable after 15 minutes or so 😕

  30. Kristin says:

    Is it weird that I always read in the bathroom? Seriously, that is probably my favorite place to read. Anyone that hasn’t embraced reading on the pot should really give it a chance.

  31. You says:

  32. Gabby says:

    hahahahahah wait ahahahaha

  33. Gabby says:

  36. Edward =)=) says:

    I cannot stop reading on the toilet so my sisters yell at me.

  37. Edward =)=) says:

    Oh well,That IS life

    It’s probably long after anyone will read the comments, but just a friendly warning — sitting on the toilet for too long will give you hemorrhoids. This is because the seat will cut off circulation around your gluteus and your blod will clot.

    So be safe! and limit the time spent on the toilet.

    Though, I do agree that it is quite peaceful to be in the bathroom. I think it’s mostly because there is a feeling of certain privacy there.

  41. bobo says:

    i know i sould not lahf but it not ot lahf wen someone says So be safe! and limit the time spent on the toilet. 🙂
    oh and sorry about the postsi was not feeling good that day.

  42. Bill says:

    wheres the toilet paper! o_0

  43. Sheena says:

    Nice one. 🙂

  44. anjali says:

    er, you are going to get a hemmeroid…i dont suggest sitting on the potty drawing….

  45. Garrett says:

    I couldn’t help thinking that Wally’s waste is probably just going directly into the water that Osborne is using to wash out(and burn) his eyes. 😮

  46. Jenny says:

    Wow. A snow toilet leaves you a cold bottom. And if your eyes sting, salt water will only make it worse. What can possibly go more wrong?
