Oh, great. The second Art Day strip, and I’m already straining to think of ways to dress the characters. I’m not very creative with clothes. These are cute, though, especially Helen swapping out her rose-colored glasses for black ones. Helen’s got her 6.02×10^23 mole mug again. I should’ve drawn that more often.
Tamara and Mee-Lise were both college friends. They’d also both appeared in Sunday features before at this point: Tamara as the creator of the Narbonic icons in last week’s strip, and Mee-Lise as the author of the “Love Theme from ‘Narbonic.'”
I don’t know if my drawing of the sixth-grade Helen is properly in continuity or whatever, but it’s pretty consistent with other drawings of the younger Helen that I’ve done. Of course, we’ll all get to see Dave in high school eventually, as per Helen’s threat.
Mee-Lise’s manga drawing of Mell actually looks kind of like Zeta, who hasn’t appeared yet, but will eventually team up with ANTONIO SMITH, FORENSIC LINGUIST.
