Even on Greyfriar's Isle, the mix of nude and textile campers doesn't always go smoothly.
Happy new year everyone! I considered staying away for longer but that would be the third time in a row that I'd extended a break. What I'm gonna do instead is keep the art simple for a while, and also I'm going to be a little looser with the schedule early in the year, because too often I end up with weekend marathoning and I won't have time for that throughout January and February. Comics will appear as and when they finish until I wrap up the festival story and start the new season in March.
This is also the reason we're spending some time with George, Jamie and Dexter; they're easier to draw than the band Festering Suppuration, and their gear and their bin bikes.

Happy New Year, ReinderDijkhuis!

This was a nice surprise!

Meeting Dexter in "the wild"! I would think that the boys would want to mess with him somewhat, but I feel like they are too pure to intentionally try to embarrass or fluster him regarding any topic. Caroline, on the other hand, would probably spin some sort of yarn...

I look forward to seeing how the interactions of this group play out!

I am too! I have literally no idea yet how this subplot will play out. I started with panels 1-2 to mark the passage of time at the campsite, then realized that I wasn't ready to draw the adventures of Festering Suppuration yet, but I didn't want to extend my break,
