Many thanks to Karl Kerschl for allowing me to abuse his character The Abominable Charles Christopher. If you haven’t seen this wonderful strip, go there, NOW!

In case you’re wondering, yes, I drew him—with GIMP and a Wacom tablet.

I’ve debated whether I should do a graphic novel, like Abominable, or a 4 panel (and we all know how well that is going :P) or…  I guess I’ll stick with this until I come up with a better plan.

Image edit: Panel 2 looked too flat.  Added sweat beads which I think gives a better impression of what is happening.
