A fairly late idea I had, in that I only had it a little while after the previous strip was done.

While I've always been aware that hair shapes were the easiest way to tell my characters apart, it didn't quite hit me HOW important prior to the previous strip. Like, yeah, Susan has a different jawline and nose to Ellen, but in the previous strip's first panel, I basically see black haired Ellen.

So yeah, Justin's looking at me, too, in this.

I know of ways I could modify my style to make the face differences stand out more without radically changing how they're supposed to look, and that would be to accentuate the differences more. That's a long term design plan thing, though, not a "let's try that RIGHT NOW" thing.
