Jon’s experienced at administering the silent treatment.

Also Seth what are you implying? Anna wears dresses and leggings, I...

Lol to be honest I stopped noticing that a while ago, and I draw the dang thing!

I don't really bother, it's just... strange. Maybe because seeing your art getting better and better, then Jon's staring down on his extended palm shirt suddenly triggers Uncanny valley... On other panels and previous strips, I admit it never struck me.

Ah yeah I think I actually goofed the hand shape a little bit in that first panel so that might be why it was suddenly more noticeable!

It's actually surprisingly common in cartoons. I hear hands are really a pain to draw anyway.

Also, when the comic started out the art was less detailed and everyone kind of had mittens, until the epic events of page 15:

Yeah I originally did it as an homage to my favourite cartoons, then kept doing it because it's easier and faster :)

Oh come on Seth! Anna may be somewhat tomboyish, but that "collar so wide that one shoulder is free" look she is always sporting is something you never see in men's clothes...

Yeah, Seth's annoyed and that caused him to just... forget? That anna has a quite feminine style? Lol

Clearly, Seth's forgotten some of the perks of dating Paul. Also, that Tilly isn't a clown.

Exactly! Why would Anna downgrade like that?

I could not imagine living in a place with walls coloured this boldly!

Ha yeah, rented places normally have such boring decor, but I knew I wouldn't want to draw beige walls all the time so I went LOUD instead

I've seen cheap places in poor neighbourhoods where they paint walls green. The reason for this is that in sociology, psychology and crime statistics apparently it has been found that having adequate greenery/greenspace in a neighbourhood lowers emotional stress, and by result also lowers the local domestic altercation and suicide rates. So, the cheap, terrible way some shit-tier slumlords try to exploit this when there's no space or money to have green-space is to paint the walls green. This usually does not work very well, aesthetically or otherwise.

Five years later, at the wedding, Seth is still poisonously grumbling about Jon's relationship with Tilly. Everybody else has just learned to accept that Seth is like this, and to ignore him and walk away when he starts doing it again. Seth still has friends and a social life occasionally when he isn't ranting about Tilly, but everyone he knows has somehow developed the same weird habit of just walking away and leaving him all alone when he just wants to get people to help him split up Jon and his evil fiancée that they all inexplicably like better than him.

I for one would like to see Anna dressed in a sharp suit... mistaken for a man. Anna has been known to swear often and with great enthusiasm, but for that occasion?

Oh I absolutely have plans to put Anna into a suit at least once!

At first Seth's dislike of Tilly seemed justified, but he's definitely dragging this out way longer than necessary.

Yeah he's gone from "maybe you have a point" to "oh my god, you BABY"
