"the 'doctor' is (back) in!"

we liked him so much, he's earned himself a recurring role in the adventures of hope!

one of the more civil representatives of the evil multinational corporation 'omnicorp', he can play a bigger part in these strips than the more flashy bad guys, who fit much better into the action-adventure format that the property would assume as an animated show or a video game.

so, after a day in the sun, i'm sending hope to one of the coldest places on earth - the north pole!
let's see what happens to our little trouper there, shall we?

stay tuned

This just can't be summer love, you'll see...

This just can't be summer love, L.O.V.E

I can't wait to fall in love with you
You can't wait to fall in love with me

Finally, strip 4 is done - i wanted it to be done earlier, as always, but i underestimate the backgrounds every time. The characters go reasonably smooth by now, even though i'm still too picky about it and noodle every expression and every hand-gesture, which i need to learn to be looser with and let go sooner, so as to not refine it to death...

but see, the backgrounds aren't generic BGs with stock-buildings and stock-plants etc, but they are part of the storytelling for me and thus become SPECIFIC buildings and SPECIFIC plants and things, which need to be rendered with a certain amount of attention and love, and so they take more time than they should... BUT - the end result is worth it - at least I'd like to think so...

content-wise there's not much to add, i don't think - i'm just happy that our heroines are able to make the best out of what looks to be a very humid and boggy future for our children and grand-children...

Summer's over for the both of us {summer's over}
But that doesn't mean we should give up on love {don't give up}
You're the one that I've been thinking of {your the one}
And I knew the day I met you you'd be the one
