APD 19: Escape Champion

OK, it looks like Jean must be standing on the table or something, because there is no way her head reaches the banner.

 Also, I cut myself off when I noticed that this strip was getting a little repetitious in theme. I have tons more thoughts on the matter, but I think Jean sums it up pretty well in two lines.

Yeah, I love having days off, because I can do this!
I am really proud of this artwork too.

I will probably deal a bit with the aftermath next week. Or the girls can just binge on granola bars for the next few strips. I haven't decided.

APD 18: Confession

I like the inking on this one a lot more than I do the last one.
Anyway, this is late because I decided to do Dr. Sketchy's tonight, and I forgot it ended at 10. Ug. Also, it is in the city, and I didn't get to this until after I decided to do a bunch of stuff. The moral of the story is, "Don't be a cartoonist." Full time, it doesn't pay enough. Part time, there is no time.

I hope you like what I am doing here. If this feels a bit repetitious, it's only because it is. I am tring to highlight how the same thing can be made imbalanced in opposite ways. I jsut feel this is something I need to address before I move the story forward, or maybe I am stalling because I don't know hwat I want to do with these character. I do know what I want to do with myself, sleep. Good night.

APD 17: Expecting the Worst


This happened to me once. I was called into the conference room by the HR person. I thought it was going to be about my terrible attitude and total lack of progress. Instead it was a birthday party. I was so flustered I went straight back to my desk. I'm not certain why I was convinced they were ready to fire me. I think it was because I disliked them so much, I just assumed they disliked me. I eventually quit, but what shocked me the most is that they didn't see it coming. I guess I put up a good front after all, or they just really didn't care enough to notice things. Lack of caring may have been my biggest beef with the place.

What does this have to do with anything? I dunno. It's past 3 AM, and although this comic really didn't take that long. I did spend some time tweaking it, and I think it was worth it. These drawings are hella tight.

Also, make sure to give some money to a good cause and maybe spend the day with the every talented Lindsey Stirling. If you win, I have to be your plus one.

Edit: Buzzfeed feels the same way.

APD 16: Tree Zone

Well, here you go. I will post another one on Friday, I think.
I like to think that Jean is doing her best Dr Cox impression in panel 3.
Anyway, food...

APD 15: How Urgent?

APD 14: The Day After

OK, I was not really planning on having a good night.
Instead of being depressed, I invited friends over for pie.

Other awesomeness, might involve finally finding time to make an awesome dinner, and rocking out to the new Taylor Swift album. I should be in bed, but some things are just too important, like finishing comics and my third play through of 1989. Yes, it lives up to the hype, and each subsequent play through is somehow better. I'm not saying it's my favorite work by her, mainly because I am not that big on the heavy Max Martin influence, but she is just maturing in all of the right ways. I can't wait for the next one, but I had better get used to it. She only does this once every two years.


Oh, I am going to be living off coffee tomorrow, worth it.

APD: I Shall Sleep Here



You can tell the state I was in when I conceived this idea, and I wasn't that bad when I drew it, but now...

I'll have something else up tomorrow...

Um... bed.
