“Dissertation Insanity”

Right! New comic! This is the last of the pre-prepared already-lettered ones I have lying on my desktop.  I don’t know when the next update will be. (Fucking Easter, screwing up all the open times…)

There’s not much to say about this one. The only panel I like is the expression in the last frame. The rest suck. Part of the reason I wanted to do a comic is to challenge myself with every panel, so this time I thought, “Hey, I don’t do profile pictures! Why not set a comic mostly in profile?” Well now I know why I don’t do profile. It stinks. I have a few more comics being sketched and none of those will feature profile (okay, one panel, but I’ll make it better, promise.)

My hair and face have actually grown since I started this dissertation, it’s not quite that long. I refuse to shave my face or head until this is finished! Luckily, this is going to be soon. I am so nearly there I can taste it. Only one more dissertation-based punchline coming your way, then we can talk about other things. Like jelly.

In other news, I have a wisdom tooth, which is hurting like a mother. Must get some Bonjella, excuse me.

    That’s awesome, and disturbingly accurate to my own experiences… minus the facial hair of course.

    Thanks! I figured I wasn’t the only one going through this. At least there’s some kind of solidarity in the moment.
