Everything Kane says is a version of something I have once said to women without realizing how fucking stupid I sounded OR that they were hitting on me. Well, except that last one. The first one was particularly heart breaking because I spent an entire night working up the courage to ask this girl to dance when she was clearly eyeing me THE ENTIRE NIGHT and when I finally get her on the dance floor, I bust out the “this is boring” line. To be fair, the song was terribly lame. But the damage was done.
I reveal one of my great weaknesses with this comic. And it’s not the making an ass of myself in front of women. I can’t draw real people for shit. I can draw fake people and people that I make up. But when it comes to drawing likenesses of actual people, I can draw myself and that’s about it. If you make the mistake of asking me to draw you at a convention, you will receive a thing that looks nothing at all like what you see in the mirror. Now I can kind of do cartoony versions of real people. But real people who kinda of really look like the real people, I am horrible at that.
You can probably guess the reference I used for the second panel which looks absolutely nothing like her, except maybe the hair. But I won’t embarrass myself by revealing my references for the other panels. Unless, of course, you guess that shit. Then I’ll tell you and run away in shame.
