Hey, welcome back! I hope you had a good chance to reconnect with friends and family over the last few days. I've been super slow on comments, replies, and other commitments, so let's see if I can catch up before we get into the New Year.

Also: Check out this awesome art from Blue Dragon, the creator of Dark Horse!

*scrolls down* Well, that's a damn fine present for the readers.

(Am I talking about the fan art or Donna's ass? The answer is "yes".)

If you got it, flaunt it!

(Not sure what I’m talking about either!)

Is Donna putting up the "Help Wanted" sign, or taking it down?
In any case, I guess that means that Mrs. Schibel now got booted out of the highly esteemed bikini coffee business?
And who will be the new girl? Anybody we know, or a completely new character?

Sooooo funny story

I'm dead out of specific ideas so I go and draw Donna from a good angle, put on another person because you gotta have dialogue, that other person's asking her about the obvious "make conversation" question this time of year, and Donna's gotta have a positive answer, so what would she want most of all, and hence the sign. But then I draw the damn thing and I'm like, that's ambiguous as hell, and thinking about that got me set on where we're going for this chapter. Also note the placement of the photo inside the shack, that was initially a coincidence but it is prophetic. A lot of words to say YES there will be new characters, because Donna's building her team.

It's interesting to hear about your creative process and how your ideas um, percolate in your mind.
I like her ass and Blue Dragon's green polka dot bikini too!

So of course I check out Donna's ass too, but believe it or not, the contrail catches my eye. Most artist would paint a blue sky and maybe a cloud or two and call it a day. However you put in a contrail, Just like a real life winter sky. Suggesting a whole world out there going about their business. Gotta love backgrounds! :)

I live under that sky.

It is the most beautiful sky in the world.

(Thanks!)

I live in the Pacific Northwest and we have a local espresso chain called "Woods Coffee". Their sizes are silly: "Spruce", "Evergreen", etc. I always just say "12 ounce" or whatever because I can't keep them straight.

I only just noticed how cup size is indicated in Donna's espresso shack: "A cup", "B cup", "C cup" And I'll bet that if we could see the rest of the sign it would go up to "DD cup" and probably even larger.

I love it! And probably someone has actually done that in the real world somewhere.

Regretfully the sizing was not my original idea... I totally stole it.

(Thanks to Donna returning to the grind, the nickname for the 4th size has been... redacted.)

One dares wonder exactly what it was that Donna wanted.
One shudders to ask that question aloud.
