#174 Could Have Spread My Wings


Pickering’s really not making good headway on that crossword.

In other news, my inability to draw a straight line is reaching legendary proportions.

JUSTIN: So I’m thinking, why can’t a woman be more like a man?
LANCE: That’s great, man. I gotta go ask someone to dance.
Justin hangs out.
Pickering does a crossword. A hand appears, obstructing her view.
Justin’s ears perk up as he overhears someone talking about “a confirmed old bachelor.”
Pickering looks up. It’s Lance.
Lance and Pickering dance.
Long shot of dance floor; Lissa and Eskimo are still dancing. Lance and Pickering slip out.

    is it my imagination or is Higgins totally scoffing at that society lady?
    nice inking in the last panel, though it did take me a few seconds to make out the blotch in the center as two people dancing. Clear as day now.
    Good job on the out-stretched limbs in the previous comic. That kind of thing is a b%$* to pull off (for someone with no talent like me).

    Yeah, you can see I had some problems in inking here. Throughout, the messy lines are a surefire indication that my pens were running out of ink; I resorted to a flip chart marker for larger expanses of black, and I’m not really happy with the way it came out (it was way too thick for those experimental outlines, for example), but when you exclusively draw comics at work, you have to take what you can get.

    I have no memory of outstretched limbs (and am too lazy to abandon this reply and check out the previous comic), but thanks!

    What kind of socialite does crosswords at a ball? Truely Lance is saving this woman from ultimate destruction.

    To be fair to Carole, she thinks of herself less as “socialite” more as “doctoral candidate in Language and Linguistics, This Glorious City University”.

    Did I just call Pickering “Carole”? I didn’t even realize I was on a first-name basis with her!
