80’s Jill

by Terri Libenson

I recently came up with a new character, a specter of Jill’s former self from her teenage years who occasionally turns up in the bathroom mirror.

This character, whom I refer to as “80’s Jill,” serves several purposes. She’s there to remind Jill of earlier ideologies she sometimes forgets in her hectic, here-and-now mentality. Sometimes, she brings out former insecurities which Jill has tried to deny or forget. Other times, she’s just there to show off her gnarly hair roll.

80’s Jill creepily resembles my own high school yearbook photo minus the chubbier cheeks I sported back then (if I ever get the nerve, maybe I’ll post the photo). I like her so much, I decided to make her a reoccurring character in the strip.

Coping

On a different note…

New Year’s Resolution Update! :

I’ve managed to get ahead 2 days now.  I’m tempted to waste away one of those days due to the sniffles, but unless I have the plague, it’s back to the drawing board.
