This strip, the week in general, was a delight to draw: the random things stuck int he ice, and visual effects, and the totally different perspective of all their common-day things like cupboards.
This is one of those childhood imaginations I still have-or-recall. What if it got so cold the pipes burst and flooded the house and then froze? All your toys and belongings frozen in ice. Inconvenient, yes, but kinda’ awesome! :)
being that i grew up in a two-story house in New England with only one small wood stove as the entire heating system, it was no huge stretch of the imagination either!
I always thought this strip was super-sweet, both her wanting to make Ted happy and the others being entranced by her sweetness (and the desire for pampering).
Happy Holidays everybody. :)
I love that feeling, where everything is so relaxed and serene, that I could just slip off into sleep.
Unfortunately it usually happens during important lectures or meetings.
This strip was a bit of a stretch of the reality (I know, I know, a talking bear, WHAT reality). But it was too sweet and too much fun to imagine vachel going to these lengths to avoid a hug that he KINDA REALLY ACTUALLY WANTS.
Thank you Vachel. We didn’t want to know.
This strip was fun to write, because I like decorating my tree by making things. Although I usually keep to stringing cranberries and popcorn.
