TAGS Jan. 18 & 19, 1993
Here Checkov (dragon) and Monster (monster) are in chef whites working in the kitchen; an unexplained change from the bussers’ costume of previous strips. Characters can fill any position in the restaurant I suppose.
Also, Checkov did appear previously without glasses. It's not a gaffe, he some times wears glasses, he some times does not.
The middle extended panel of 01/19 I think is nice, considering it’s as much character model exploration as anything in my sketchbooks, of which, by the way, I hadn’t done much.
And TAGS starts to parallel the “little red head girl” theme from the Charles Schulz’s “Peanuts”.
