I think I’ll just let this speak for itself.

Also: I just unpacked a bunch of costume parts — who wants to come over and dress up as Sourballs with me? The best part is that most of this is coincidental stuff that I had around before I even started doing these comics.

…It’s ok, though — his best birthday was pretty unbelievable.

This is kind of a sequel to this one, if you missed it the first time around…and you better believe I’ve spent some serious time lately watching all the videos the internet can give me where cartoon characters get on their lecturing high horse about not talking to strangers, always recycling, and not playing in the clothes dryer.

Oh yeah, and I added this feature semi-surreptitiously a few days ago — and I’ve already got some super awesome mail, a couple of which I’m certain I’m going to use. You guys are the best — thanks! I’m not sure when I’m going to do the first of these, but it’ll probably be soon…and I kind of imagine it as a recurring thing every now and then. I absolutely want more of them, too, so: do it do it do it please.

Lucky comic number 33! This song’s been kicking around in my sketchbook getting re-written over and over for months, and I’m glad I finally found a place for it. It’s also got a Part 2 that I’m looking forward to drawing, but I think I’m going to shift gears back to the Candy Hearts next — I’ve totally been neglecting them due to the Sourballs being pretty much my favorite. I’m enough of a dork about this that I have detailed notes about every character (like, the bible of what traits they have, and what dynamics they have with others, and the strict rules of what they aren’t), and I definitely have the most written about Turpentine and Arsenic.

Oh, yeah, and the other thing I wanted to mention was how much I like drawing extra background characters in this world — they mostly have this thing going on where they need to look…fun…in order to be visually consistent with the main characters. Pretty much everybody dresses with this sort of fusion of the 90s, the 80s, and a bin full of costume parts.
