She’s already got another one of Honey’s drawings on the fridge, too!

I also mentioned this somewhere in the comments last week, but I think it bears repeating that I had tons of fun with the challenge of coming up with the way each of these characters draws, with the parameters that they should look stylistically distinct from each other, and neither one’s really supposed to be able to draw well.

So, sorry that this one’s so late — this mostly happened because I got sick this week. I’m going to say that we’re back on an Every Monday schedule now, and this one may just count for the upcoming Monday the 12th (and maybe I’ll post a bonus drawing or something on my blog on Monday to make up for it).

I had quite the debate with myself over whether “butt holes” was allowed to get past the ridiculously, deliberately low swear barrier I’ve set for these comics. I decided yes because it’s so juvenile, like something a five year old would say, and the context is so silly.

I’m pretty sure that part of the reason people would go see this band is that they’re prone to unpredictable antics.

This one was the biggest challenge yet to the self-imposed No Swears law of these comics (which I think, overall, makes it funnier in this retro sort of way…). It was actually a real challenge to keep what they’re graffiti-ing on each other relatively clean.

Notes: Turpentine just smokes when she’s drinking, whereas Arsenic smokes basically whenever he doesn’t have anything else in his mouth.
