“Holding in the Sneeze” In the original version, I didn’t think there was enough of a visual payoff for the readers. Plus, I wanted to show both women shopping in ‘public’ to make Rococo’s statement about ‘sneezing in public’ make more sense.

“Taking a Message” To be honest, I think this is a weak comic, and I don’t think the second one is all that much an improvement. But, whatever.

“The job interview” Not much changes from some of the older to the current strip except I tried to draw the scenes in multiple vantage positions and enhance the story telling thought the body posture.

“Celeste meets Dave” I wanted to improve the facial expressions and body language of both characters. I didn’t want to just draw ‘talking heads’. I wanted to draw a story in which the characters really act out the dialogue.

“Celeste meets Paige” I had the same issue with this comic. I didn’t want ‘talking heads’ in front of a white background. I wanted the characters residing in a physical setting going about their lives. In doing so, I had to draw them at different vantage points, which has been challenging as a cartoonist.

“Chewing Milk” I had more fun and was more adventurous in the second version of drawing this strip.

“Moldy Chips” Not much change with Celeste, but I gave Paige more hand gestures and body language instead of just standing there.

“Purpose of TV” I came across this quote in a paragraph in one of my textbooks for the History of Advertising back when I was in college majoring in advertising. I had thought the quote was so profound, and thats when I knew that I shouldn’t get a job in advertising.
