Trinculo, a character in The Tempest, spends a lot of the play as a comic relief character who is horribly out of his comfort zone. That’s why I selected that character as Chapel’s role, because it parallels her costume-related discomfort in the comic. I also chose “The Tempest” as the play being performed, because it involves ships and water, much like the bay where Chapel’s performance of it is being staged. Chapel clearly cares about color coordination, so the clashing shades in her Trinculo costume probably make her want to throw up.
P.S. I’m on a trip in Hawaii with my family right now, so I colored this comic with a beautiful view of the ocean! Comments may be a little bit slow, but I promise I’ll get to them.

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?
