panel by panel (this week's strip)

I've been experimenting for the last couple of weeks with drawing the strips in a little moleskine-a-like, one panel a page. Astonishingly, most of the panels are actually the same size, and (given that most of the drawing happened on a bus) surprisingly unscribbly. However, there are kitten related issues; every time I fire up the scanner she wants to know what's alive in there! ... and then I'm having to stop her jumping on the buttons and treading on the touch screen and excitedly shoving her little paw deep into the rollers. For a regular strip, once. For the moleskine-a-like strip, FIVE times. What an exciting evening she's had. And me too. This week's strip, anyway. As you can see, my new, open plan, office is a little different from the old one.

I should probably have coloured this, oh well.
