Random Chick Generator

It's rare that I need to draw a character outside of the usual group of Precocious nutjobs, so I take the task of designing a random character as a fun diversion. One of May's random strips requires a random restaurant hostess and that gives me an excuse to play around. Anyone have a preference? (Click the image for a larger version.)

Speaking of May's strips, I've already bent the rules! The vow was to step back from storytelling and go with a true gag-a-day format. What I've written so far is a week of strips that stand alone - but they *do* have a common theme. After massive artists' block, I looked over what I had and saw half the strips written could be connected. Let's go with that!

I see it as having my cake and eating it too. A strip function best when there's a joke that can amuse fresh-eyed new readers AND give something extra to long-reading vets. These strips are a primitive form of it, but a good sign nonetheless.

Hmm..I think I like the one in the middle row, far right. Nice work on all of 'em, though.

Thanks for the reply, Nick! I'm liking the Interactive Precocious Experiment so far.
