The Fine Art of Conversation

True story.

Sometimes I think she is waiting for the precise moment when the toothbrush is firmly entrenched in the farthest regions of my mouth. Good thing she never asks me to say "She sells sea shells by the seashore," or there'd be one heck of a mess.

To decipher the content of the word balloons in panels two and three, place a foaming toothbrush in your mouth and read the text aloud.

Drawing Notes

This one was done way too short to its deadline. Due to my workload at, well, work, I only got this strip finished late last night. The static panel layout didn't help much; I still had to draw the tiles one by one.

Turns out that if I make an effort to draw faster, the actual savings get swallowed by the mistakes I make. Darn.
