Actually, no, the title of this comic is such a liar. It is lying super hard. I don't care if that's a spoiler. I'm just gonna say it. Liar liar, metaphorical pants on all SORTS of fire.
I'm not 100% sure, but I think this is yet another example of me basically saying "not that that sort of thing interests me and has been on my mind for nearly literally as long as I can remember" (and only "nearly" because I think my earliest memory involves looking out at a porch or something and I'm pretty sure I wasn't thinking about being stuck as one sex at the time and how that was not a preferred state of being).
One thing that I do vaguely recall is someone calling half-squirrel Grace an animal and making some rude comments reminiscient of Tony here. I had already planned Tony being a jerk prior to that, but I'm pretty sure this insult was considered after that.
Speaking of which, WOW, Tedd. Gven the art style at the time, that is a super rad drawing of Grace. I thought Sarah was supposed to be the artist in the group. Rock on, dude.
Tedd and Elliot taking a drawing class was inspired by me taking drawing classes in high school! They were basically study hall and taught me nothing I couldn't learn by just buying a sketchbook and maybe reading an introductory tutorial to perspective somewhere. Drawing classes that basically just tell you to practice and do whatever remain a sore spot with me to this day, even moreso now that I've had college classes that were BASICALLY THE SAME THING.
Granted, I was a Graphic Design student, not a Fine Arts student, BUT STILL. If it's a class, the teacher should do more than occassional comment on stuff you could do literally anywhere outside of that class. Well, maybe not literally anywhere. It'd be hard if I was underwater or something, BUT YOU GET THE IDEA.
