After I had the entire page done, except for backgrounds, I had to redraw Kevin in panel 3. He originally looked rather sheepish, which is so not Kevin. He’s an ambitious kid, but that’s when it comes to things like his music (hence acing the poetry journal). The rest of it? Fuck it. Perfect is the enemy of done, and the time he spends on homework he’s not working.
Ms. Singh is pretty cool. Good sense of priorities.
Hi, Professor Singh! Ms. Singh is the 9th-12th grade English teacher at Westlayan Upper School and I suspect she’s quite acquainted with Kevin’s antics by now.
Fun note: my kids have watched a lot of Magic School Bus, so when I wanted to shorten Biiku’s dialogue (she previously mentioned she went to a private parochial school, St. Francis) there was really only one choice.
