probably not working on my comic, probably should be.
The composition of this page makes him seem so terrifyingly isolated- and second to last panel gave me a yucky shiver D:>
@super-chii: I'm glad he found just the shirt to advertise his LARGE LOG

also YAY KNITTING!!! So funny seeing this today as I was thinking of getting my knitting stuff out of the closet for the fall :D
The splaying little kitty paws ;;
@The_Hankerchief: Thanks for the reread and the compliment :) :) It's hard to wrap my mind around the fact that I did this page 6 years ago.
@The_Hankerchief: Bunk beds, man. My sister and I had separate rooms so we never had justification for one, but I remember being keenly jealous of my best friend and her younger sister (who was also my sister's age). The younger sister had the cavern-like bed on the bottom, and my friend had the exclusive top-bunk which gave us access to the ceiling fan (which had an adjustable dial switch to control speed). During intense games of Good vs. Evil, Barbie Edition, the top bunk was the "evil barbie" lair, and kidnapped "good barbies" were often tied on to the ceiling fan and spun at gradually increasing speeds until rescued by their colleagues. It's a miracle we never broke that fan.
@The_Hankerchief: I love you for making me aware of that video so many years ago XP
I can't imagine they're going to get incredibly far into the book, but I hope they can glean some amusement from it.

So that's it, the story of how these two initially met. For some reason I fucking *love* writing and drawing these types of scenes as flashbacks, so expect more "HOW DID THAY BACOME FRIENDS" scenes in future chapters. Not this one, though. This chapter stays strickli in 1918 from this point forward.

...Huh, up until this point the prom chapter was the longest one in the whole comic. The next update will push chapter 7 into that superlative. There's four more scenes in this chapter, and rounding up to 5 pages per scene (which isn't going to be the case but I'd rather overestimate the workload) leaves us with 20 pages or fewer until the end of the chapter. Um. Guys. I think I can finish chapter 7 in TYOOL 2019 *a tear forms and I swipe it away quickly*

By the end of the next scene, I'll have matched or outdone in 2019 the number of pages I made in 2016, 17, and 18 combined. It feels really good to be back to drawing and updating semi-regularly like this. I hope I can keep it up. I feel bad about the readers I've lost over the past few years because of how slowly I was updating, but I'm also a little bit grateful for the delay because I'm definitely a more decisive writer now and have really terrific plans for the cast that I think I was too uninspired to do a few years ago. Yeah my art sucks more than it did in 2014/15 but I think I'd rather be motivated and excited about my story while having shitty art than have good art I never feel like making.

By the time this post is up, I should be returning from my EXTREME FABULOUS TRIP ABROAD. Hopefully updates will resume within a few weeks, otherwise be mindful I may have died on the trip!! Thanks for reading!!!!!!!!!
Cecilia, he's calling you a poindexter. Give up! Go on to the next sick kid! Spare us this whole webcomic!

for folks keeping score at home, here's the last time we saw Joseph around this age, about 2 months before he needed to go into the hospital, being a dick to Uly.
ya another flashback~~

I probably mentioned this last post, but this is a scene I've been excited about since I came up with it probably 5 or 6 years ago if not more. I'm.... okay with how it turned out, like it's probably 80% how I wanted it. I think this page turned out the best, though I didn't finish editing the others yet.

More to come next week! I have the next two weeks ready, but am going on vacation for these same two weeks, so I expect that the page following this scene won't be ready for a while. Sorry for sporadic updates.
Congratulations on your wedding!!!! cute page to leave off on for that event :) :)
*melts at cuteness*
The balance of romance/sexy stuff and humor in this comic is top shelf
Love how the bits and pieces are coming together regarding the worldbuilding. It flows very naturally.
Simon may be grooming himself, but my family has a cat that sometimes sleeps with his tongue partway out. Top panel makes me think of him :) :)
expressions on this page are terrific- the first few are funny, but they all pack so much emotion as well
I'm interested to find out if their bruises and other misc. wounds are just from the tough lifestyle they live or if something more nefarious is going on.
I somehow missed over the past 10 months that this comic existed. So excited to see your stuff again :D :D :D !!!
@Squirreltastic-Blue: That could work!

And thanks! I try to use colors for shadow effects though I think it's something I used to be better at. This --> was a piece I did around New Years 2013-2014 featuring some characters from other comics, I was really pleased with the way the tones turned out to suggest a brisk night scene. I keep intending to go back and do more with that... the next scene I'm working on now uses a technique I haven't ever used before and hopefully it will be effective.
