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.
