Hope everyone (at least in the parts of the world where December holidays are a thing) is enjoying a few days off from work or school — I’m having an excellent time getting festive with my family.
I’ve been making these comics for two years now, and it remains my favorite-ever project. Thanks for being the people I share it with. If it were possible, I’d pour all of you a liquored-up-hot-chocolate.
Sorry that this one was so late! If my weekend goes as productively as I hope, I’ll have another new one ready for Monday. I’ve got comix fever, apparently.
Update: I did not, in fact, have an additional new one up for Monday the 28th. I’m just going to have the next one on Monday the 4th, so that things are back on track with this established schedule where Monday Is The Thing.
…and I just plain like how italics look with this font I’m currently using here for paragraph text.
I like that I finally kinda contextualized Turpentine (& Arsenic)’s place in this one — it’s been my intention all along that it’s this odd basement apartment underneath a house, but there hadn’t yet been a page that really showed that.
Other business for today:
Jeanne Thornton, one of my favorite friends in the universe, just started up a new comics project called Bad Mother! It’s about a little girl named Betty Spector who’s being raised according to QUESTIONABLE PRINCIPLES by her mother, Mona. I’ve seen a bunch of the upcoming ones, and they are delightful.
And, on a related note, happy Mother’s Day to my mom — a very good mother who actually does read my comix, and loves me just the way I am. Aww.
Bonus today: I made wallpaper! My favorite kind, too — a repeating pattern like wall-wallpaper, instead of a single large image.
