Bit of a hint to Lucy's 'surprise' in the last panel for you! ;)

Maybe not so easily recognized though is the picture Nikki is painting in the first panel which is in fact the art for the very first avatar I used here, and possibly anywhere else. When I first joined DrunkDuck I spent about an hour trying to come up with a nice username that hadn't already been taken (and how beautifully easy it was back then!!!) and then another pondering the art. I did the original art using my favourite Caran Dache pencils and being as it was only about 6" square it only took about half an hour to complete but back then it was just 'a quickie' to get me going, so I didn't attach much personal significance to it.
When I searched through my digital stock though last week to use it for this page, I discovered I had only ever kept the original 150 X 150 avatar which wasn't much bigger than a postage stamp! In a panic I dragged out all my old SS folders and became increasingly more convinced that I had probably trashed the original art and it was while doing that I realised how badly I wanted to see that original piece of art again after so long. To my relief I did find it tucked away among a bunch of fan-arts and stuff so that made my day and I have now scanned it in at 300dpi to make sure I have a nice back up for any other future use!

Next week: Sarah gets her prezzie but is it enough to lift her depression?

Have a nice week :)

Interesting avatar story. It is a glorious pic. Did you do some of this comics pages in those pencils? The style seems really familiar, but it's been like two or three years since I started binging your comic here.

I totally get Sare's headspace here and I love that she said "can't be assed". My girlfriend says "can't be arsed" more than occasionally and she's as American as you can get ^_~

@kidcthulhu: You're quite right. When I first started this comic I did all the pages in b+w line only but changed to colour pencil illustrations for the dream sequences. After we went full colour anyway I dropped the idea but I did use the idea again when Sarah first met Lucy and had a fantasy dream about her 'selling herself' to Sarah in her grocery store.

I notice shes driving a red car, is it Sarahs car?
I guess we'll see later on hmm....
Considering everything i think Lucy is a bit wayy too cheery about this, at least if she's legitimately dumped her D:

@Linn: As always, your very perceptive and right on both counts. ;)

@skyangel: I really hope the dialogue coming up next page isnt as follows, "Here is your old car which was broken, but we fixed it and gave you a new stereo! By the way, we're getting married and I want you to be the best woman!" Hahaha!
