I've been laid up all weekend with an abscessed tooth, and had no opportunity to finish up today's strip yet. Rather than make you wait and wonder when (if) it's going to appear, i figured i'd give a peek behind the scenes. Make a bad thing seem like a good thing - that sort of thing.
So here's your lemonade.
When i update to the finished version later, i'll move this to the blog, and add some other examples of the way panels come together.
As you can see here - background is going in last. Other times, usually establishing shot panels, background is first. And, as you can see, i've got a background guide for dividing the strip into various panel configurations. More later, in the blog.

(You did know the blog was updating every now and then with extra material for MAD SCIENCE! with Dr. Nick, yes?)

Right now my next episode is just a blank piece of paper cuz I was drunk all weekend, but I think I'll post it anyways.

MO - You're gonna need at least a scribble and a drool stain to get away with it.

Yeah, Unk - but your Attic is all based on this sort of shirking, isn't it?
;)

Eagerly anticipating Horror Harlots, btw. I figure you'll see me about the 3rd episode.
Yes. It's an obsession.

Of course shirking was a major component of the Attic, after all, I was done with web comics at the time.
