Continuing the introduction of my parents to the strip.
After reading the first part, a friend asked me: "So this is why you told me months ago that your mother whould hopefully never see this?"
It's been a curious experience to transform my parents into comic strip characters. The main challenge was to make them look like my cartoon self.
So whereas in the real world I physically resemble my parents, in the comic my parents had to resemble me. Upside-down genealogy is weird.
The next time I design a cartoon self and its relatives, I'm going to start with my great-grandparents and work my way down from there.
