 Ah, layers! Like an onion (or a parfait…) :)
So today’s was fun to do! I like the idea of these two getting all carried away with their tangent and forgetting about the pressing matters at hand, it fits nicely with their characters! These guys are a lot of fun to write for and I can see them getting into a lot of mischief together in the facility :)
Things are moving ahead with the plot over the next couple of weeks, so be sure to stick around! Got a few things in mind before Joe commences his next part of the story about how our main characters got to this strip :)
Until Wednesday, Averageinguists!
