This is part 3 of the series. If you missed the first parts, everything'll be funnier if you catch up first. You can see part 1 by clicking here.

I really enjoyed writing this series. I never can tell if that translates to the reader or not, but I always feel better when I'm moving forward with a series that I think is good. I will say that it's trickier to draw a character laying down with another on his head for a couple reasons. The first is the issue of scale. It was hard to try to get Kyle the right size compared to Casey when they're not next to each other. In the original art, Kyle is actually a 1/4 inch taller than Casey in this drawing, but I'm hoping you won't notice :)
The second reason is that it's harder to get them to both fit without bursting the top of the panel. I just made it... whew...
I brought it to Wendy and she wrote the line where the mom is saying "I'm not your mother." That's what I needed to get to the end. Sometimes gags come in a burst of creativity. Sometimes they come from a community of people who get your characters and know how to write comedy in their own rights. This was one of those :)
Thanks for reading :)
