all the little owls (this week's strip)

In the mail this morning, the latest Fruits Basket! I am quite the addict, I fear, even though the zodiacs almost never turn into cute animals any more. It's nearly over, which is just as well; the story is now so fat with backstory and emotional load that the plot has ground nearly to a halt. This episode was almost entirely about slightly regretful and cruel things which people have said, and working out a good way to move beyond them. Not that this is not a fertile topic! I have a strip of my own on the very subject in rough and waiting but I'm finding it far, far too sad to draw.

Instead then, this week's strip. It's part of a long sequence that occasionally recurs, I was reminded of it after I put the previous episode (Oh Sigh) into the Oxfringe exhibition. That was back in 2005, when I had time to use inks and washes. Now I scratch away with three rollerballs while the cat tries to own my sketchpad! Hmm.

*sigh* The line is better but the lines are worse.

My owls aren't so bad. The heads creep me out more.

Jesus that's a harsh one.

I was going to say something about needing to pick up Fruits Basket again because it lost me for a while, but...

Froobie is always losing me, I fear, but I am too deep into the story to back off now.

My new favourite is XXX-Holic -- ooh the art's good!

The owls aren't all bad ;)
