I also considered having Geordi be visorless up until that last couple frames and just put on his visor, but let's be honest, getting any more visually ambitious in this context is just asking for trouble of the DRAWN BY BILLY KEANE, AGE 5 variety.

#197 – Always With The Wet Places

YEEEEAAAAAAAUUUUUGGHHHHHHHHH

Last time I was at the beach; this time I’m at a lake. Will large bodies of water never cease meddling with Larp Trek’s update schedule?

Anyway, the computer where Larp Trek’s assets live isn’t in the same state as me right now, so time for another wrist-cramping, face-mangling pen-and-ink comic. I feel like the visual gag of Geordi putting on sunglasses would have benefitted greatly from any sort of preemptive sketching on my part to figure out the composition, but, yes: lake.

I actually kind of like that second Data, as far as these things go, but on the balance it’s not exactly clear that that first Data is actually even supposed to be Data. ADVENTURES IN LINE ART.

Anyway, probably some actual traditional Larp Trek again next week. For now I’m gonna go back to ignoring the internet and drinking beer and playing bluegrass and pretending that the water in the lake isn’t incredibly cold to try and fool other people to also jumping in.

No strip Friday, Jan 10

Ain’t comin’ together, we’ll get back to it Monday.

Consolation prize: a friend this morning, chatting with me about Wes, proposed the concept of “Seven Minutes in Jeffries Tube Eleven” as what adolescent kids on the Enterprise play if they aren’t Wes because Wes never gets invited because Wes.

And it’s just silly technical shit that’s my fault, I forgot to update my DNS when I knew I was gonna need to so we had an hour or two of it just not being there and depending on where you are in the internet it might take a bit to snap back to happiness. Hopefully shit will return to form soon enough; if you’re reading this, that’s a pretty good sign, obviously, though I’m trying to figure out why I’m not getting comic images loading still.
