Author commentary

Veronica: The characters will actually be aging throughout this series.. and the old series actually has all their birthdays! When I used to draw the old series, I always did a little party thing when it was their birthday.. and considering how many characters are here.. yeah.. there will be some of these. And I thought “Why not color? I need to practice with my prismacolor colored pencils anyway!”

Mike’s birthday is the 10th of August. Silly to be celebrating a fictional character’s birthday, but I just wanna have landmarks and everything XD They celebrate Garfield’s birthday, afterall! Or something.

Oh, that Michael. And by the way, for some reason, I keep thinking Lucy came out particularly gorgeous, but maybe that’s due to the white, light blue, and pink combo she has.. really light colors. I DON’T KNOW.

Chirpy was red in the character-quiz thing.. but she’s changed to be pink now.. so yeah. Alteration of colors. Pink just seems really fitting for Chirpy.. considering the mother was meant to be red. Also speaking of color-changes.. you can tell I wasn’t COMPLETELY final with everything since Blur is actually yellow in this! What!! Yeah.. he was originally meant to be yellow, but I thought he looked too much like a bloody canary.. so it was changed to a blue-violet color.. the blue blur lol

One other thing to point out that’s amusing is that Red Lobster no longer sings this song.. atleast the Red Lobster I work in. Isn’t that depressing? It’s such a nice and happy song, too! I’ll definitely miss it, they replaced it with the generic birthday song now. What a bummer!

Fun fact: Michael’s sister, Haley, has her birthday on August 9.. but she’s like a full year younger.. so she JUST turned thirteen.. but she’s too unimportant a character to draw anything for. THAT’S JUST HOW IT’S ALWAYS BEEN. Yes. OKAY I’LL STOP TYPING. How could I type so much for ONE PAGE.
