The Process

One part of comics life that has not endeared itself to me is aspects of the research.  Specifically, the research into clothes.  Women’s clothing.  While it’s an engaging and valid excuse for cruising Victoria’s Secrets catalogues as “research,” it also leads to conversations like:

Me:  “What do you call that.  Those sweaters with shortened sleeves…”

She:  “What?”

Me:  “Um… you know, like three-quarters sleeves?  Do you have any of those?  They cut right below the boobs?”

She:  “You mean a ‘shrug’?”

Me: “That is a gesture, not a garment.”  (Not true, it turns out.)
