Smithson Thus Far... ·


Shaenon: JP Chabot, creator of The Dragon Doctors, imagines the Diggings dogs as humans. JP writes, "Muffin reminds me a lot of an uncle I used to have, so I modeled him on him, sort of. Sparkle I figure totally had to be basically The Baroness; the power behind the throne, and sexy and manipulative as hell, but surprisingly genuinely in love with her man. Her hair is long on one side to hide her mangled ear. Buddy is based off of a big, friendly guy I used to know in high school."

Personally, I envision human!Sparkle looking a lot like Julie Rome, the cop back in Paradise. Only more doggy, I guess.

JP also drew a human!Sweetheart. "Tip's talking to one of my characters in the top right," he explains. "I thought it was too weird a coincidence that we both have werewolf therapists to not have them meet each other."

Thanks, JP!

Channing: Hee hee. This is really cute, JP! I'm particularly fond of Sweetheart's Milk-Bone earrings.

Have fun doing fan-art and such with the lot of dogs, folks, because it will be a long, long time before there are this many dogs in the strip ever again. God willing and fair winds, it will also be a long, long time before we do another FRIKKIN' TEN-MONTH STORY ARC. Just take a moment and drink in the epicness for a while.

William Tracy (afishionado) says: Tip needs this PSA:
So It Begins (soitbegins) says: If Human!Sparkle really looks like that, I suspect Buddy's not the only one who's howling.

(TUNE:  "Penny Lane", The Beatles)

Well, Human Buddy is a kinda big and friendly guy
Who'll watch the "Lassie" marathon on TVLand ...
And to the kitchen he makes several trips
Just to get more chips ...

Now Human Sparkle is a sexy smiley goth-y gal
Who lets her hair grow extra long upon one side ...
And she grows it that way to hide
Her mis-shapen ear ...
Very weird!

Filler strips are by J.P. Chabot today!
Putting all his talent on display,
We clap and shout "hooray"!

Now Human Muffin is an older and a wiser man;
He's kinda like the artist's uncle, more or less ...
His experiments, we confess,
Really make a mess!

And Human Sparkle now is noshing on potato chips,
And Human Buddy is experimenting there;
Human Muffin will trim the hair
Growing in his ear ...
Very weird!

Filler strips are by J.P. Chabot today!
We admire his handiwork and say ...
"Yay for J!"
