You need some upbeat Dixieland jazz for the top panel, and a mid-90's sitcom record scratch sound effect for panels 2 & 2.5.


#8: Joseph's Prom Night Problem. (link)

Length: 2 pages

Why it's #8: In order to be able to dance at the prom, Joseph overdid it with his pain medications, which by the end of the night, and after so much physical exertion (exert! exert!*), have catastrophically worn off. I like the interaction between Joseph and Cecilia and the picture it paints of the nature of their relationship- in terms of both of their expectations and understandings of one another's "role." Art-wise, you get to see Cecilia with her hair down, and Joseph looking miserable and ticked-off.

*Two scenes that were also really qualified runners** up for this countdown, & feature my peculiar reliance on the word

**oh god I'm so sorry.

Your update pace is really improving!
And I'm digging that gal in the hospital robe in the back of the first panel. She looks like an absolute delight that could be taken anywhere!
Also, dig panel 2, since I feel it's rare for you to draw your characters with such bliss albeit ephemeral.

Awww, I love how they just grabbed the whole family! Bless them. <3 And seeing different reactions of kids... And wondering if there's one in the attic they forgot about. Man, at times like this I especially feel our comics are like cousins. XD


You just motivated my butt to do some comicking tonight!

@Squirreltastic-Blue: Keep it between you and me, but the only reason I've got decent updates is I finished all the scene and shceduled them ahead of time to upload... * makes shushing motion* Hopefully I can finish more of the next scene soon and keep up the pace!!

Lmao that's Aggie's mom from 2 pages ago, pregnant and a bit agoraphobic and none too happy about being dragged along for this D:>

And that's true- they tend to exist in a state between disappointment/boredom and general contentment :P I need to get back to practicing expressions soon.

@Oly-RRR: OHMYGOODNESS LOL AT THE FORGOTTEN CHILD IN THE ATTIC (Last night at my old kids' musical I saw the boy who used to be my little match girl attic boy that I told you about, he's super tall and so definitively a mopey inward teenager XD I'll ahve to tell you more about that in a separate PM or email though...) YES PLZ COP ERA

I've been having a weird and pointed fixation with Joseph lately and I'm not sure why???? Like his are the only plot points I've been wanting to think about for some reason???

@mitchellbravo: Yus yus yus, tell me about the kiddos at some point! :D

And I get the same thing with chunk of CS too, like sometimes it's ALL CHANCE or ALL SCHOOL and it's hard to manoeuvre a large story around these writing fixations.

@Oly-RRR: I think that's the only way I've been able to keep going for all these years is having differnet avenues to pursue... like I know there's characters I haven't spent as much time on but i feel like as things unfold their time in the spotlight comes up to the service (MEANT SURFACE, LEAVING THAT TYPO)
