I wanted to have this comic be quiet and meditative, particularly when it comes to Chapel’s Zen attitude. Sometimes it’s important – especially during the summer – to kick back and enjoy simple, childlike pleasures. Chapel is clearly very wise for her age, and I wanted to have a comic where she gently reminds her brother to let himself do “kid stuff.” Even though Chapel is quite precocious, she’s still a kid.
I really like the touch of the frisbee in the tree. Well played!

Oh, yeah: I finally clicked on your Girl Genius ad and just went through the entire archive. Nice job!

Thank you so much! And I'm really excited you went through the Chapel comics. I hope you keep reading every Friday, I'd love to hear from you more!!
 Emma  6/29/13
Emma..... It's Friday so doesn't that mean a new comic
Yes! It'll be up in 1-2 hours.
 Emma  6/28/13
It's now more than 2 hours
Today was the last day of school and I can't wait to make all of my art projects that I have planned
Trix 6/28/13
Yes!! Congratulations! Summer art projects are the best.
 Emma  6/28/13
Well, what kind ? I'm bored. :(
Viv 6/28/13
I'm thinking of trying new mediums and supplies to try to get a variety instead of just paint and brushes and I also have an incompleted painting I have to finish
Trix 6/28/13
LOL... Rupert just shifted to the other side of Chapel in the last panel!
Audrey 6/25/13
Yes, he moved over to be in between Chapel and Barnaby.
 Emma  6/28/13
Congratulations on your DHP!
Dean 6/24/13
Thank you!!
 Emma  6/28/13
Whats a DHP?
Viv 6/28/13
Good sense of perspective in this strip, Emma. Clouds are fascinating to watch; especially when a storm is brewing.
XMinusOne 6/23/13
Thank you! Storms don't happen too often where I live, but I agree.
 Emma  6/28/13
Lol the frisbee is still there
Julie 6/23/13
ooh! Yeah, i didn't notice that! Well, actually, I did, but i didn't give it a second thought, weird. bright yellow things usually catch my eye... Any-whoo, you even got the shadows of the clouds down! BRILLIANT! you are so awesome, Emma. Jeez. It's actually a bit frightening, (in the best possible way!) :)
whippedcream 6/24/13
Thank you so much!! I was wondering who would notice the cloud shadows. I wanted to give a sense of time passing, and I thought they really added to the atmosphere of the strip!
 Emma  6/28/13
Yes, it certainly is!
 Emma  6/28/13
What a perfect way to spend the summer solstice...
oddment 6/23/13
Yes! A uniquely summer-y activity.
 Emma  6/28/13
I'd go out and do this too, except that it's raining right now. XD
GG 6/22/13
Hopefully once it's sunnier, you can go look at some clouds a la Chapel.
 Emma  6/23/13
I love the continuity of the frisbee in the tree. And congratulations on the Dark Horse thing!
RowAn 6/22/13
Thanks, I love continuity so I'm so happy my readers pick up on it!! And thank you -- I'm very excited about DHP.
 Emma  6/23/13
Rupert is so cute! I wonder what he thinks the cloud looks like.
Sylvia 6/21/13
He probably thinks all the clouds look like hedgehogs!!
 Emma  6/23/13
Lol that's cute... (^^)
Miss L.S.P 6/21/13
I'm glad you like it!
 Emma  6/23/13
Congrats on the Dark Horse things as well!
Miss L.S.P 6/23/13
Did Barnaby move Rupert over to his side, or did Chapel move it over to him because she knew that he ("he" = either Barnaby, Rupert, or both) would like it?
jkat718 6/21/13
Or did rupert choose to move their on his own.... ;)
blaidd drwg 6/22/13
Rupert moved on his own, you're right!
 Emma  6/23/13
Rupert moved over by himself, because he wanted to be in between Chapel and Barnaby.
 Emma  6/23/13
...And Chapel STILL hasn't got that frisbee out of that tree. I wonder how long it'll take till barnaby get's an idea and just take a broom to reach up and knock it out of the tree.

..and no chapel, it looks like a UFO.
Dr. Taxil Necrobane 6/21/13
Yep, the Frisbee's probably there to stay...until they want to use it again, that is!!

check out Emma T Capps new web comic, The League of Fonts THE LEAGUE OF FONTS is where typefaces are born. Every time a font is created in the world, it manifests as a living, breathing, Font – human for all intents and purposes, but unable to age or die unless their typeface falls into disuse. They live together on the League of Fonts, which serves as a secret island hub, bustling corporation, and home. It’s a world full of its own internal intrigues like any office, and Times New Roman is its powerful CEO. He’s got a lot on his plate lately: planning the League’s famous Decennial party, struggling with modern technology, and hiding his embarrassing addiction to the Twilight movies. Times New Roman is confident he can keep everything under control…but what’s an old font to do when a young boy named Louis Pepping accidentally stumbles onto the secrets of the League? Find out every Wednesday!
