When I was a kid we used to regularly get winter snowfall of a foot or two. Now we’re lucky if we get an inch. I miss those days. Standing in the back garden, surrounded by the eerie, calming silence of the world and its flumpy blanket. I used to watch snowflakes and would try to spot one high up and track it all the way down. Then I would get my Action Man ski combat set out and all hell would break loose.
You may have noticed that I have decided to overhaul the strip font. I really fancied using a lower-case compatible font so that I have the option of all-caps for shouting (plus a lower-case font emphasises Foxx’s endearing innocence all the better). I found the absolute perfect font – just what I wanted – but I had to dump it at the last minute when I realised that it was the font used by Penny Arcade. I trialled a whole mess on old strips, and this is the one that came out the best.
I’m gonna try and bust out a Christmas strip for Christmas Day, but no promises.
