Since I already prematurely snarked on the "That was when I still enjoyed working" strip this past Friday, I decided to create a lead-in for the strip I expect to see reprinted tomorrow. (dreadedcandiru2, I know you read the guy in that strip as Dr. Ted, but I decided he looked different enough to be a whole other jerkish colleague of John's.)
Shania-Ann is there because Lynn decided to update her original reference to a hygienist who resembles Cheryl Ladd to one who looks like Shania Twain. Then we had some strips where we see a hygienist who resembles April Patterson, which of course led to my Foobars in which April was able to travel to Elly's warp-time for a little while--here I have John explaining that she's a hygienist filling in for Shania-Ann Achronism.
I actually looked at a bunch of Shania Twain pictures and tried to draw Shania-Ann to look as Twain might if she were a foob character. I'm not sure how succesful I was, but I had fun drawing her hair. At first, I was looking for reference pics that weren't overly posey, but for the final frame, I decided to go for a shot that was as posey as it gets... :)
One of my favorite moments in Peggy Sue Got Married happened soon after Peggy Sue found herself a teenager in the 1950s once again. Her mother asked her about what she'd argued with Charlie about. The mom thought she was referring to her teenage daughter's teenage boyfriend, but in Peggy Sue's mind, he was her ex-husband decades later. So she responded with something like "Mortgage payments." :)
I may be jumping the gun. I probably am. However, if my gamble pays off, the strip I used as a reference for this Foobar will be reprinted today. If it doesn't pay off, LJ won't get to it until next week. Or worse yet, skip it (but I doubt that--she seems to be leading up to it).
