Author commentary

Veronica: This chapter is from 2009, the dawn of the halftone-shaded era. So I’m still figuring out how to do things, but hey! Let’s get on with the show!

Panel one had to go through quite a bit of revision because I notice all I freaken draw all the time are freaken trees.. so I wanted to draw good trees this time. Mike should become a hobo and live at the park.

I just noticed, the book Mike is reading is called “The Bluest Eye”. Does that remind anyone of a certain character? Eh? Eh? *grin* *wink* *blink* *blink* *wink* *cough* (Lucy) *cough*
