Unshelved comic strip for 8/1/2008

Self Inspiration

The first person who ever asked me for a sketch at ComicCon was a fan who calls herself Hawk, back in 2003, long before I drew well enough to do a good job. Every year she asks for a new one, which gives me a chance to look at what I've done before. I came across a pretty funny drawing with pretty funny dialog, and decide to steal from myself by making it today's strip. Thanks for inspiring me, Hawk, or at least helping me inspire myself.
