Q:Have they ever join M.U.N. ( Model United Nations) or any debate clubs in their schools? =/ I didn't direct the question to one character because many of them are coooooooooooo00ol. from another reader to be added
Jeeze I have no idea. Maybe Herville and Langstrom. Although, I dunno, Herv might be too antisocial for clubs. But then again he does enjoy arguing and yelling. A lot of my other characters are all highschool dropouts (Phineas [he has a GED], Krow [dropout also too busy huffing glue] and JayJay), and I have no idea how British school works so I cannot even say offhand for Delia without looking up a bunch of stuff.
Let’s do a roundup of afterschool activities I think each character would have been into:
Delia: Math clubs, science clubs, whatever was availible
Herv: After school hidden-drinking, hiding, secret smoking, quiz club, piano lessons
Phineas: Torturing dogs
Janet: Drama Clubs
Jayjay: Art clubs, working, hitchhiking the hell out of Georgia
Laurence: Math clubs, boyscouts
Eliza: What the hell do the insanely rich do? Ride ponies? finishing schools?
Abel: ha ha ha ha ha, no downtime in special mutant school. he does read a lot.
Cain: Same. Now he enjoys gardening!
Orville: I bet there are a lot of youth clubs in communist eastern europe! He’d really have his pick. He’d have gravitated towards musical ones in his youth.
Alice: None. She hides in her room and reads fangorias and tries to teach herself bass guitar.
Benjamin L.: Anything snobby. Drama, debate, gymnastics
Elizabeth L.: Weightlifting team, women’s rugby, student council

Q:Sorry if you've answered this question in a previous entry, but what are some of your artistic influences in making String Theory? Your work is (very) amazing but I can't think of any style or genre that quite describes it.
I feel like my style influences are pretty obvious, but I guess every artist feels that way.
I grew up watching those semi serious adventure cartoons. They all had that simplified action comics look to them. Clean lines, blocky features, heavy shadows. Batman, Gargoyles, stuff like that (I am old). Also remember aping a lot of tim burton stuff like the beetlejuice cartoon, and that oyster boy book he put out. Probably can still see it in the eye areas/how I draw brows. I went through a Sonic phase, a Simpsons phase, a furry phase, a John K phase…
Of course most obvious of all is Monkey Punch/Lupin The Third manga and anime. Like man my first chapter might as well just be like “hey guys look how much I like this anime.”
