it’s probably a social norm that it’s wrong to date your best friend’s ex. probably. what it comes down to though is just understanding. what kind of understanding do you and your friends have? if this rare situation should ever occur, it’s definitely a good idea to go ahead and discuss it with your friend first, get the ok, and then pounce! just imagine the repercussion if you don’t have that talk first!
artwork wise, it’s definitely inspired by calvin & hobbes, as is much of my work. it was definitely fun having a continuous background ‘run’ through the storyline. i tried something new with the tree in the background. i colored it by hand with a Sharpie black marker and then used a thin white out pen to get some texture into the tree. unfortunately, the white out pen didn’t have nearly the control or thinness like i wanted.
