I have finally decided on a redesign for Doctor Warped that I can be happy about. His jacket has a John Lennon/Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band feel going on with it that fits the character. Wally is a free spirit and a revolutionary. He is anti-establishment by the fact that the establishment has shunned him for his crazy ideas. Though if the establishment wanted him backed he would probably go but he would laugh in their faces still.
The old design just had him in a t-shirt and jeans. Not the most imaginative character design. I will be the first to admit it. Hope you like it. Let me know what you think.
We didn’t wait for Amanda to find the mouse. He appeared stuck in the wall between the living room and kitchen. Cutting a hole in the wall we were able to rescue the little guy and set him free. He has a much better view now and he won’t have to watch his back with a cat and two dogs who might not be as kind as we were.
He wouldn’t stay and talk to us. He scampered out into the backyard to find himself a new home. He’s more than welcome to come back and visit. I just recommend he doesn’t get stuck in the wall like last time.
For the past week Amanda the Cat has been intently looking at the stove. She will just lay and and stare. We thought this might be one of her new resting spots that I spoke of recently. She changes up where she likes to lay down every few weeks. She’s like that.
The kitchen is right next to the study where I work on the comic. One night I hear something scratching from behind the stove. I then realize why Amanda has been so interested in this new spot. The noise suggest we have a little visitor inside the walls. We could not find an exit hole. Our little friend has not ventured out to the great wide unknown of the kitchen.
Which is good since Amanda would surely have made him a midnight snack by now. She might have even brought him to me as a gift. She did that recently to a cricket that wandered inside. The cricket remained alive rescuing the little guy from the clutches of Amanda in the nick of time.
Amanda’s new friend has not made an appearance. I’ve checked the basement numerous time as well to ensure that no lab animals are hiding there. No cheese or any other food has gone missing. I hope the little guy is safe and warm. If he is a good neighborly mouse he is more than welcome to stay.
Amanda is almost an constant companion in the study while I work on Warped Cosmos.
She is, at times, asking for food. She is critiquing my work loudly either perched behind me on my chair or right in the middle of me working. Other times, she finds strange spots to sleep in. For a time she would sleep in my chair forcing me to work at the edge of my seat. She would complain loudly if I did not let her have that spot.
Her latest spot his right behind me curling up to a good book or in this case a book shelf.
I will never understand cats but I don’t have to. She brings me joy everyday.
Another character that will get a redesign is Glitch. He will still be the same but will have the ability to become something more when the need arises.
The below sketch shows him sleeker, cooler, and more buff. Yes…it looks like he has abs. He also had buns of steel.
He will be making his appearance shortly in the comic.
