Way back when I started making comics (2008, because no one can make me count that crap I made in/around high school SO YES 2008 NOTHING BEFORE THEN), I made up a set of rules for things I would never ever do. With this comic, I think I’ve finally broken the last of them.

It’s not like I wrote them down, but I remember I never wanted to use thought bubbles… which I did in Phantom Thesis. And I never wanted to make a tampon joke… which I’ve only recently remembered I did in an unofficial Bendy Straw Vampires. And I never wanted to insert myself into a fictional strip (as opposed to diary strips)… which I just did up there.

And may I just say, my hair looks much better cartoonized than eye are el (IRL). Can I be a cartoon forever?
