I recently came up with a new character, a specter of Jillâ€™s former self from her teenage years who occasionally turns up in the bathroom mirror.
This character, whom I refer to as â€œ80â€™s Jill,â€ serves several purposes. Sheâ€™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, sheâ€™s just there to show off her gnarly hair roll.
80â€™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 Iâ€™ll post the photo). I like her so much, I decided to make her a reoccurringÂ character in the strip.
On a different noteâ€¦
New Yearâ€™s Resolution Update! :
Iâ€™ve managed to get ahead 2 days now.Â Iâ€™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.
