Wednesday night my tablet’s pen effectively died. I still did this strip with it, but it was a fight. I could only get the mark I wanted approximately every third stroke. It took forever. I have backup tablets, but when I installed one it wasn’t giving me pressure sensitivity and I just can’t work like I’m stuck in MS Paint…

I’ve got a new pen being shipped to me on Saturday, so hopefully this will be the only strip I have to wrestle with a broken tablet pen.

I thought about just saying, “No new comic today.” But in the end, I wanted to just get this out and keep going ahead on the story since I have so much planned for the rest of the year in Zombie Roomie.

On an artistic side note… I’m really pumped about panel one. The girls look great in profile, which is a first for both of them. Zoey’s been attempted in profile in the past, but it didn’t work well. Lizzy was supposed to be in profile recently, but it wasn’t great and I just ended up changing back to the standard 3/4 at the last minute.
