2010127 (1) – Coffee mug fix.

20100131 (5) – A quickie! Very minor script adjustments, type re-bubbling… only one tail. It’s all heavy lifting from here – 2-7 have moderate to high dialogue density and a good amount of rewriting. I have about forty minutes before I have to start with the showering and the dinnering and the leaving – I’ll count myself lucky if I can get one of those pages at least partly assembled before Go Time.

Also, minor art fix – tweezed out what I think is The Last of the Anterior Research logos. Coffee mug, panel two.

20101225 – Original page metadata:

Anyone who’s lived in Pittsburgh can tell you that the tapwater tastes like a chlorinated fart. If it doesn’t, it tastes like something equally vile – I was a redhead for the year I lived in West End, courtesy of hard water.


2008.04.19 – Cropped and tweaked. By far the biggest alteration – panel five was flat-out replaced, thus eliminating one of the few lingering potential © issues I’d overlooked on the first assembly pass.

20101225 – Original strip metadata:

Strip 026, 20051010

The first JPEG strip. It’s been .png until now, but in this case it was a choice between a 60k jpeg that looks fine or a 64-color 60k png with obvious banding. And banding is gross.

Also, yay for the mini-mart not having any diet soda with sucralose (aka splenda). Dunno about you cats but I much prefer the hint of a swimming pool aftertaste in splenda-laced beverages to the nursing-home astringent of aspartame.

Ph34r the pineapple Whitehouse.

Strip 027, 20051011

Right, like you’ve never sat on a running washing machine before.

Strip 028, 20051012

The story probably could have done with at least a panel or two between Pineapple Whitehouse and the Happy Mac, but I think it flows okay as it is. Were this animated, the BING! could easily be a drier buzzer or the like, instead of a Macintosh startup noise.

Strip 029, 20051013

You drink Allegheny Center tapwater at your own risk.

Mastering notes, 2016.12.05 – Removed a brand name from panel fourteen.
