“The Bridesmaid”

IMPORTANT NOTE: In no way shape or form does Laura condone this strip. This never actually happened. She never spoke the lines written in this strip. This was just me deciding to run with a joke that I fully realize is in bad taste. Sorry, Heather.

In other news, long-time readers may suddenly be scratching their heads trying to figure out how a new “Laura Knows Best” ended up in their mailbox this morning. Surprise! After completing the next batch of strips, I realized just how closely they were tied together. If I stuck with the weekly schedule, it would have taken too long to tell it all. So, lucky you, unlucky me – I’ll be chained to my drawing table frantically trying to maintain the buffer I currently have! I might experiment a little with the days the strips get released, but as of now, expect to see something new on Wednesdays in addition to the usual Sundays.

This past week also saw the first “Laura Knows Best” collectible go into production. Thanks to Janette Ussher, long-time fan and future character in this strip, a sublimely designed business card was sent to press and ready for distribution at this past weekend’s Vancouver Comic Arts Festival. Check out Janette’s Etsy site for other cool stuff, and check out the business card here: LKB_businessCard_3.5x2_HR.

“The Sibling”

Well, here’s me taking bad jokes to a whole new low. But what do you expect from an older brother? Heather did end up being hospitalized after our trip to Laos. The last theory was that she’d contracted something nasty called chikungunya, which I thought the doctor was just making up until I saw it referenced in the Muppet Show comic book. Alas, due to the incompetency of the hospital staff and technicians who lost her last test results, we’ll never know…

“The Cereal Box”

I’m particularly proud of this strip, as I think that it best exemplifies our relationship more than any other strip I’ve yet to produce.

“The Return Home”

Welcome to the ‘new’ LKB! Ever since I started drawing this strip, I had the idea in mind that I would experiment with different styles and approaches to drawing, so I figured that the beginning of a new chapter in the lives of Laura and Brett was as good a time as any to change things up. Let me know what you think!

This week also saw LKB receiving its 51st subscriber! I just wanted to thank everyone who has supported this strip – your comments and ‘likes’ go a long way in keeping me motivated. If you’ve liked what you’ve seen so far, than I guarantee that the next few months will blow your mind!

“The Trip”

I debated for some time whether or not I would devote a series of strips depicting our three-week trip through Southeast Asia, but ultimately I felt the need to move on and try and catch up to the present (which hasn’t worked out anyway!). Besides, those stories have already been told. You can check out my old blog, “The World According to B,” to find out what happened in Laos, Hoi An, and Myanmar.

Next week: Laura and Brett return to Canada, as a bold new chapter in their lives is set to begin!
