The ridiculousness of Tim’s pants was something of an in-joke back in the day, in the sense that no one understood why I was drawing him with such ridiculous pants.

Also, look at those nice, non-uneven borders! They were actually introduced in the comic before this one, but I’ve since redrawn that one. I should’ve made the change a lot sooner, of course, but for some reason I saw the shabbily-drawn borders as being my “thing”, adding a distinctive element to my comics – which is just another way of saying that I couldn’t admit to having made the mistake of using them in the first place.
