Shaenon: Dudes, is it steam engine time for ultra-cute Skin Horse art or what? Leigh Koszarsky sent us this rendition of Tip with the therapy puppets. Eek! You can read Leigh's comic, Necrogenesis, at necrogenesis.net. Thanks, Leigh!


Channing: This is great! It's, like, the illustration is equal parts "fairy tale" and "Japanese", which also happens to be a pretty good summation of the kind of thing we're doing here, what with the making Oz references using cyborg helicopters and all. The therapy puppets probably have names and voices and everything, and the whole affair probably drives Tip's clients closer to breakdown and despair rather than pulling them back from it. Can't you just see it, looking at this? Thanks for the art, Leigh!

Ultra-cute, indeed.

 

(Don't look now but your link to necrogenesis.net is kaput.) 

 

Frank Bahn (caspian_sea_monster) says: Certainly cute, but blonde?  Maybe I'm going colorblind, and/or maybe it's just my imagination, but I seem to remember Tip being an established brunet(te).  Alas, I'm too lazy to go back and look and am not one to question artistic license.
Adam Underfoot (unnatural20) says: well. It could do without the quotes, or without the http://, but not without both, right?
Dave Van Domelen (dvandom) says: Tip is definitely blonde. He has more fun.

Also? Skin Horse Coloring Book!

Shaenon Garrity (shaenongarrity) says:

Link fixed.
Ed Gedeon (eddurd) says:

Kawaii!  OK, the puppet with the antenna is "Troubles", and the other is "Bubbles".  Troubles is the voice of the patient's anxieties, and Bubbles is the upbeat optimistic voice that offers solutions to Troubles' troubles.

(And please, no references to the "Scottish Tragedy".  We would not wish to bring bad luck upon the authors.)

David Harmon (mental_mouse) says:

The drawing is indeed very cute, but I question Tip's bodily proportions... he's a cross-dresser, not an actual girl!  (Or even woman, but ths drawing is definitely "girl".)

I do not question his hair color, as that can easily be subjected to his whim  -- without need for mad science, even.

David Harmon (mental_mouse) says: Hmm.  Having examined Necrogenesis, it looks quite interesting, but he clearly picked the wrong character to model Tip.  ;-)
Eric Burns (ericburns) says:

I can accept the proportions. He is, after all, bishy.

For me, the therapy puppets replace the mental sprites from Narbonic. Sure, they're not nearly as effective, but then this is a government agency.

Basil Jelly (basil_jelly) says:

But that is the whole idea. Put them under stress and then walk them though it showing them there is really nothing to their fears.

Those puppets sure will put you under stress. 

So It Begins (soitbegins) says: Heh.
Frank Bahn (caspian_sea_monster) says: @Dave: Fair enough.  Sometimes I forget things like hair dye exist.
Tiff Hudson (tiff_hudson) says: Channeling Blackadder: "Were you referring to...Macbeth?"
Ed Gedeon (eddurd) says: @Tiff:  AAAAAAAAAAAUUUUGGGHHHHH!

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.
