I'm certain artist goes through this phase at one point or another, whether they draw or write cute and fuzzy things or not. They feel they must be something else to be the artist they want to be, when in the end, all they can really do is be themselves, which is the coolest thing of all.
That being said, Darky (artist of the snazzy slice-of-life comic Various Days ) drew a response to this arc, in particular, last Thursday's strip.
I don't believe Geo will ever look that gritty and cool from my own drawing paw, so soak in the awesome while you can.
Now, if you will excuse me, I must get a pea coat and some shades. Keep yer fluff on until Thursday, peeps.
