So with this strip, I started a new technique. I really developed a taste for rendering with brushed cross-hatching, so I thought I’d give it a shot and see how it looks in the strip. You can see it a little bit on the chair and table in the first couple panels. I probably could’ve been more adventurous with it (and I completely forgot to do it in the last panel… whoops), but regardless, it’s something you’ll be seeing a lot more of in the strips to come. Also, this strip was published on my birthday. Yay me.
