It’s telling that I drew the original sketch for this strip about two months ago, and did the pencil artwork about a month later, and then finally had time to ink and color it last week, only because I was sick and confined to my house for a few days.

So, yeah, when I first conceived of this, I was in the middle of deadline hell for several projects, but the truth of a freelance career is that if you want to keep working, this should always be the sight in your rear view. And those bastards ARE always closer than they appear.

Now, would you believe me if I told you there’ll be ANOTHER new strip next week?
