Nothing else to say this week. See you next week! Thanks for reading! <333

  1. Who’s a good boat? You are! You are Rollo!

    Quick Q: do you make that criss-cross pattern for Rollo each time by hand or have you created a Pattern so you can just Fill it in?

    • This is one of the first pages where I sort of made a pattern. I definitely need to make a more effective one that might scale better without blurring. Or just avoid many Rollo close-ups. >_>;

  2. Sorry to be a nitpicker, but that’s a figurehead, not a masthead… Very cute page, though! (My cats like to do the loving head-bonk too)

    • I kind of assumed he was getting it wrong out of anxiety over this whole GIRL thing >>;;

      (also rollo is sooo cuuute x3 )

    • WHOOPS. You’re absolutely right. I’ll have to change that. Haha, thanks! I have a cat that does that too. :3

  3. But holding still is *hard*! Seems glad to see him though, conversation with the dock was pretty wooden.

    • Holding still is hard, especially for a figurehead with the personality of a dog. But he loves everyone!

  4. Rollo is soooooo adorabubble ^.^

    • Hehe, thanks! He is a cutie-pie. For a hunk of wood.

  5. I don’t know if I love more angry Coal’s face or surprised Coal’s face ;) Both’re adorable.

    • Well “surprised” doesn’t happen often so it’s certainly more fun to draw. :3

  6. I’d say that it’s pretty much guaranteed that Rollo will forget to act like a normal figurehead and scare Hedda at this point :p. He seems too curious and playful to resist the temptation.

    • Haha! Yeah we’ll have to see how long he obeys Coal. XD

  7. Christian Slave has joined your party!

    • HAHA! Achievement Unlocked!

  8. Love the figurehead wonderful.

  9. Yes, the staring contest is that old.

  10. I have unending love for the detail work you do on things like this.

    • Thank you! I need to find a quicker way to do them though. XD

  11. Given how well Hedda has taken everything so far I doubt a moving masthead will phase her that much. xD

    • Well so far things haven’t been…ridiculous. Nothing inanimate blinking at her, at least. Yet. >3>

  12. I love Rollo. Seriously. I would have him as a pet anyday. I also love this comic and I love the work and detail you put in it. (I apologize for the unoriginal comment :P )

    • Thank you! Rollo would be an awesome pet. You could go anywhere in the world (well, anywhere via boat), and he’d never get tired. :D

  13. Heh. Great stuff. Keep up the fine work.

    I’m looking forward to Hedda’s inevitable freak-out.

    • Hahaha, me too. Thanks! XD

  14. “STILL” is the best sound effect EVER!


    • Agreed! That panel makes me laugh every time I look at it.

  15. I don’t know when you put it up but I just noticed the website background. Super cool effect when I scroll.

    • Haha, it’s been up since the very beginning, actually. I’m glad you like it! :D

  16. Good boat, best masthead. I hope your hand isn’t still cramping from all the detail.

    • Haha, no, thanks to some Photoshop tricks it’s not as painful as it used to be. XD Thank you!

  17. Rollo’s better than a dog, ’cause if I tell my dog to be still, he just wags his tail and clonks me again.

    • Haha! Yeah I don’t think my dog could do that either. >_>

  18. I think Rollo is slowly becoming one of my favorite characters. Just so loveable! Too bad no one returns the affection

    • Haha, thank you! Rollo feels the love even from people who don’t want to give it to him!

  19. Oh my gosh, I LOVE this comic. This is my first time commenting, but it’s really so awesome. Loki is my favorite of all the gods from every pantheon, so this is so cooooool to me. I also love your art style, and it’s really well written, and I can’t wait to see what happens next.

    • Thank you so much! I’m glad you’re enjoying it. :D

  20. Haha, I love that boat! I know some horses who do the head-bonking thing, it’s kind of uncomfortable.

    • Haha! At least the horses aren’t made entirely of wood. XD

  21. Rollo is definitely my favorite character XD

    • Haha, yay! Thank you. :D

  22. I can’t be the only one dreaming of a Rollo pencil-holder or model or bedside lamp or just ANYTHING tangible and adorable.

    …. Can I?
