In the past couple of months, I have completely remodeled the space where I make my drawings. I now have a new desk, a comfy chair that can be raised via a pressurized valve, and leg extensions for the desk (I'm a pretty tall guy and I need the height). The stuff was a little expensive to come by, but such are the sacrifices that we must make for our art.
Speaking of more nuanced character portrayals, there will be some interesting new story elements introduced, starting next week. It's not going to be at a level that is "not safe for work" or exploitative, but I would say that Ellison and Sarah are definitely getting closer to one another, despite their shared penchant for socially awkward behavior.
