This strip is #2 in a series dating from my university days. Puck ran for three full years in the Silhouette, McMaster University’s student newspaper. Apparently I had a fan base, though I seldom heard from them or met them.

As you can see, the art here looks a little dated. Some of this stuff was shaded on a 486(!) with 8 megs of RAM. Yeah, I’m serious. A lot of the material predates this millennium, so you know we’re really going back a while.

I have to state that most of this artwork was generated at top speed, because my time was at a premium in those days. In retrospect, I should have chosen a simpler style, because my characters go (seriously) off-model all the time. Just looking at this particular strip makes me shudder. I just want to shout “Get a smaller forehead!”

The gag here was intended to become a recurring joke where Puck talked to her brain. I never actually revisited the concept after this.

@Jack Faire: That is an awesome nickname to have. Glad to hear that amusement has been provided!
