Search and Research #103

How about these Olympics huh? Yeah...I'm really into 'em too. I've had this idea for like, 2 weeks now, but all my evenings turn into an "All Olympics, All the Time" situation. So, yeah, I'm finishing this strip a little later than I wanted.

This is a real situation...I spilled soup on my shirt during lunch one day, and there was a very obvious stain on my shirt. Not being able to go home, I had to cover it up and the only thing I could think of was the two name tags I have (one old, one new) and sat at the desk thusly attired, enduring many strange looks.

For the purposes of this strip, I envisioned that Marc had an old name tag that was misspelled, which he pulled out of retirement to cover a stain. Enjoy!

Hey! Here we go with a new strip. I had my week as a camp counselor, and a week of recovery, and I've got a couple of funny ideas for upcoming strips, so the strip is moving along. After I scanned this strip in, I realized that I really made a mistake trying to put lips on Marc from this angle. I've never tried to draw Marc from this angle, but it's how I envisioned this strip working so I had to try. I don't think I'm going draw him from this angle again.

I also noticed that Bo√ľk's head shape changes in each panel, although I think that it is sort of interesting that maybe his head changes shape with his expression. We'll have to see. Enjoy!
