I had a little time today so I decided to make something quick and stupid.

Hey there everyone, I hope you're enjoying the weekend. I threw this cap together pretty quickly, but I like how it turned out. Definitely not one of my better caps, but it's simple and fun, and sometimes that's all you're looking for anyway.


  1. Friend's and their hijinks, always a simple, classic theme for caps. Perfect for a quickie like this :).

  2. Love it!!! Simple? Maybe. But definitely fun!!!

  3. I like the cap's premise. I feel your caps are losing a bit direction lately, not enough of your past soul is going into work. I think your caps could have a little more story. You can still say more with less, I just don't feel you're achieving it like you use to.

    1. No argument here about the lack of direction. But I wouldn't hold your breath for caps with a stronger story focus. The biggest problem I'm having right now is feeling like I've already told pretty much every tg story variant there is, and I don't want to keep rehashing the same ideas over and over again.

      I honestly doubt I'll ever get back to where I used to be, as that same drive just isn't there anymore. But I feel like I'm continuing to turn out quality caps every now and then, which is why I'm still here, even if my production is a fraction of what it once was.

    2. While I can't disagree with what Anonymous wrote exactly, I can stand up and defend this cap. When I read it I had a smile and a 'HA' moment. I didn't comment on it because while it's good... it's not a good 'Rauk' caption. The design is solid, the story is funny, the layout is clean and easy to read... it's a very good cap. If I read this on someone else's blog, I probably would have commented and offered kudos. But just as Rauk said in his write up "Definitely not one of my better caps". Minority Report may not have been one of Spielberg's better films, but that doesn't stop it from being a good solid movie.

      To Rauk specifically; I wouldn't worry about making caps with a stronger story focus or getting back to 'where you used to be'. I think you are just evolving your process and should just focus on making caps when you want, how you want, and where you want. Will they all be big production caps? No. And that's fine. If you just focus on being happy with your caps and not focus on impressing anybody or trying to live up past the shadow of your own legend, then you'll make good caps and we'll all be grateful for them.

      As for your statement '...I feel like I'm continuing to turn out quality caps every now and then...' I'd edit that down to '...I feel like I'm continuing to turn out quality caps.' I haven't seen you make a clunker yet so there's no reason to hedge your statement!

    3. Thank you, Caitlyn. I know I say "thank you" to pretty much every comment I receive, but seriously, thank you.
