Chapel now understands just how difficult it can be to look for work – and she’s just hitting up the neighbors for pet-sitting opportunities! I wanted this strip to showcase the personalities of each person she’s talking to without showing them directly. Backgrounds can be a fantastic tool for showcasing aspects of a person and I wanted to play around with that in this comic! Next week, one of the three neighbors featured in this comic will take Chapel up on her offer to pet-sit. Do you think it’ll be panel one’s Woman Who Really Likes The Color Blue, panel two’s Bicycles Are Kind of “My Thing” Guy, or panel three’s Too Many Topiaries Lady? Discuss!

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?
