Shaenon: Ed Gedeon writes, "I'm sure one of the most frequently-asked questions is, 'How do you create your characters?' Well, this bit of artwork shows one possible way." Now I'm a little sad that no one has ever actually asked me how I create my characters. Maybe Jeff's gotten that question.

I assume Ed chose to draw me because I'm way more fun to draw than Jeffrey. Sorry, Jeffrey, but the funnest part of drawing you is putting you in different hats.


Channing: Nah, people don't usually ask me that question very often. Which is just as well, because I don't actually know the answer for certain.

It comes as little surprise to me that I'm not very fun to draw. There's just not all that much appeal to drawing tall and vaguely stocky nerd boys without many distinguishing or redeeming physical characteristics. Oh well, at least there's the hat thing.


Shaenon: Don't say that, Jeffrey! Tall and vaguely stocky nerd boys are among my very favorite things to draw! Actually, you look very much like Chevy Chase in the movie "Funny Farm," so even when I have trouble drawing you, I'm still in a good mood because I'm thinking of the movie "Funny Farm."

Brian Rogers (billionsix) says: Darn it. Now I have to see Funny Farm.
James Rice (jhrice) says: Darn it. Now I have to ask Channing how he creates his characters.
So It Begins (soitbegins) says: If that's you, Shaenon (and it sure looks like it is), that is my new personal favorite pic of you. EVER.
Rob (rrreed) says: Channing has a secret gang of ring-tailed lemurs typing madly away on a set of surplus TRS-80 computers running Electric Pencil. Periodically he harvests their output, tossing anything resembling a stereotypical character and keeping the rest.
Terry Smith (wcfan) says: Oh, that's Shaenon? I thought it was Dr. Lee (The Korean with the Chinese Name (tm))
chic geek (onechicgeek) says:

Oh, I like this! Well done!

And Jeffrey in hats? He's not secretly a jaegerkin, is he? 

And-last but not least, because I don't want Shaenon to be even a little bit sad-Shaenon, how do you create your characters? 

Ed Gedeon (eddurd) says:

I drew Shaenon 'cause I've seen her cartoons of herself ... until I read Jeffrey's self-description above, I had no idea what he looked like.

Hmmm ... hats ... heh heh heh ...

Shaenon Garrity (shaenongarrity) says:

Terry: In addition to being a Chinese and big-fat-white-guy-in-VR name, Lee is the second most common surname in Korea. I already used the name Lee for a Korean character in Li'l Mell, but Korea doesn't have a lot of surnames, dammit.

chic geek: I think Ed has it about right.
Eric Burns (ericburns) says: Even when Jeffrey gets drawn, I continue to think of him as gerbil shaped and sized. It's just easier that way.
Andrew Kunz (miyaa) says: So...does that mean Jeffery has his own hampster wheel?
Jeffrey Channing Wells (channing) says: Eric, is that because your first exposure to the character of me was as a mouthpiece for Artie?  Or some other more nefarious reason?
Stephen Ashby (jackbubbles) says: I've been a longtime fan of skin horse and Narbonic before it, but this is my firt comment, so hi guys.What prompted me to finally speak out?  the realisation that Unity was derived from a certain Mell W. Kelly. Helen Narbonic, in order to continue funding her mad science sold the DNA of her intern, Mell, to a gorenment bioweapons program.

http://www.webcomicsnation.com/shaenongarrity/narbonic/series.php?view=archive&chapter=10317

 Unity was recently revealed as a product of a goverment bioweapons program. This, along with certain shared mannerisms, leads me to conclude that Mells DNA was used in Unitys creation.

Tiff Hudson (tiff_hudson) says: Based on what I saw at Otakon, there are a lot more ways to dress up a tall and vaguely stocky nerd boy than just hat changes.

I myself used to have all three of these Vibram five fingers characteristics. Not when I was an adventure-seeking, rambunctious toddler, but as an older high school teenager. It was at this stage that my foolish rascal tendencies were at their Vibram fivefingers kso highest. I would constantly complain, care for my friends more than my family, and in general would just talk all the time. Then came a moment when I wondered where I would end up. Would I remain vibram five fingers sprint on track to becoming a doctor like my parents wanted? Am I just going to keep acting like a child for the rest of my life? This moment would serve as the spark that set in motion a process of learning life lesson, molding me into the vibram five fingers classic person you're reading through your computer screen.
