I don’t know if anyone’s paying attention, but this is the first time I’ve missed a scheduled comic post. It was also time for another Dancing Bear, but I didn’t have time for that either. The short story is real life caught up with me. I’ve been snowed under by a research job and short on time due to a family vacation. Should be back on schedule next week, however.

I’m not super-pleased with the quality of today’s comic. Since I’m out of town I’m using my brother’s scanner, and either it’s not as good as my scanner at home or I just don’t know how to use it, but I couldn’t manage to get a better quality scan – hence the odd gray background. I tried some new things with the artwork – this is the biggest comic I’ve drawn, I used thicker markers than usual for the inking, and I experimented with more complex perspective. It was a fun challenge, but I’m very aware of where my art fell short of my usual standard. Ah, well, there’s never a time when I’m sad to be drawing walruses.
