You should know that there is a second reason that Nimmo isn’t getting a puppy, imaginary readers. I can’t draw dogs at all. Cats, either. There was going to be a cat in the comic once. Bastet, actually. She interested me because she’s supposed to be the reason we have that superstition about black cats. However, after trying and failing miserably to draw a decent looking cat (even by my own standards) I scrapped the idea.
It has come to my attention that I probably won’t be able to do the storyline I want to do this month if I also want a Halloween storyline or series of strips. And I really want to draw my characters in costumes. So it looks like I’m putting off my awesome crime storyline until November. Oh, well.
