There’s always a delay between getting these mail questions and choosing one to draw — so, June, if you’re still out there however many months later, thank you!
I like how this one turned out. It always sucks to finish a page later than I mean to, but I’m glad I took a little extra time here to get a few details how I wanted.
Voila: a mail comic! So, this whole thing has been really fun — I’ve got a couple more letters that I really like that are waiting in the wings for later, and there’s always room for more. This’ll be a Sometimes Thing.
I kind of like the idea that gimmicky ones like this are not necessarily inconsequential throwaways — like, somehow this one has a temporary moment of self-awareness and emotional vulnerability beyond anything she’s shown before. It also has crazy eyes, and massive legwarmers, and cake destruction.
Thanks, anonymous letter-writer! ♥♥♥
