Author Notes

7th May 2022, 12:00 PM Idk if I was just lazier lately, or if this scene really didn’t seem to need many backgrounds Σ(-᷅_-᷄๑)
I sure had to reference that one expression though! How does it read to you guys…? I’m really hoping the right vibe came across ;)

Okay, announcement time?

You may have heard of my upcoming comic The Angel Professor—mostly because I haven’t been able to shut up about it! That’s launching on May 11! It’s a dark fantasy which follows a professor and her has-been guardian angel, reluctantly uncovering a big demonic plot deep within their hometown. It will upload every other week just like S&B, except on Wednesdays instead of Saturdays.

On the same day, my buddy The Accidental Ninja is releasing their new comic The Guarding Tree! It’s also more so in the fantasy genre, and I think you guys would really like that one too!

I’m also kind of in a weird transition period in my life right now. Work has become very hard to manage anymore now that the environment has changed due to the owners cutting down on labour costs. I’ve been very burnt out and often discouraged as I look for a different job, and get my driver’s license/learn to drive finally as well.

It is good to be moving forward in more significant ways though, and I have some very good friends helping me work through all this stuff, and having fun with them along the way too!

I’m glad this hasn’t stopped the release of The Angel Professor. Creating is a great outlet for me, and I’m glad that something good can come amidst all this which I can share with all of you! Thanks so much for being there, you guys make my day every time I upload!

Cheers, and God bless y’all <33


7th May 2022, 1:06 PM That moment when a character redeems himself in a single page. That was QUICK (but I like it) XD

And the expressions are fine! A really great range of them here! I can't decide which one I like better, that subtle-yet-deep expression in the last panel, or Muppet Kat
7th May 2022, 1:12 PM Haha he sorta did redeem himself in this one area XD

At least now we know he doesn’t have some sort of grudge against her!

And thanks for the feedback! May Muppet Kat never die ;)
7th May 2022, 1:25 PM Best of luck with work -- I've been there, in general terms, and it sucks but it also eventually ceases to suck.

Also wow, Drill Sergeant to a Teenage Civilian would be a lousy job to be suddenly punted into.
7th May 2022, 1:31 PM Thanks for the encouragement, that’s good to hear <3

And lol yeah, Kairo had no idea what he was in for (^^;)
7th May 2022, 1:26 PM Yikes, a talk like that would make teen me quit on the spot!
7th May 2022, 1:30 PM A talk about emotions? Yeah, I feel that.
8th May 2022, 11:32 AM More like I perceive him as a bad guy now. Like, really, really BAD:

"Hey I did some soul searching and realised I was being hostile because I was projecting my own regrets onto you, so actually it's for your own good!"

Run girl, he's trying to fix himself through you! It won't work and each day he'll punish you for it! RUN NOW!!!
8th May 2022, 1:20 PM Oh yikes! Yeah he definitely has some issues that he doesn’t deal with in a healthy way. But I bet Kat’s smart enough to not listen to everything he says. If it doesn’t work for her, she’ll drop it, you know?
9th May 2022, 5:21 AM Hopefully!
We all read it through the lens of our own experience!
9th May 2022, 8:27 AM True!
7th May 2022, 2:27 PM For my money, Frame 3 says it all...
7th May 2022, 2:36 PM Thank you! That was the most important expression I’ve drawn in awhile :3
7th May 2022, 2:31 PM I'll have to check out the new comic, then!

It's nice that they were able to talk things through, but I still think both of these kids would fare better with multiple teachers, instead of one guy in over his head.
7th May 2022, 2:38 PM Aw thanks!

And yeah that would probably be better for them, true. They don’t just have the usual issues growing up—they also got scary powers that are potentially really dangerous :0

Here’s hoping their support system gets bigger <3
7th May 2022, 3:45 PM Communication is important! And so many soft expressions from Kairo on this page~
(also, Muppet Kat xD)

I'm excited for our comics to launch! Yay!! (thanks for the shoutout :D)
7th May 2022, 5:45 PM Soft expressions are probably the best ones…and maybe the toughest to draw haha!

Yus :3

You’re so welcome! See you on Wednesday ;D
8th May 2022, 12:20 AM Looking forward to the Angel Professor. And I love Muppet Kat😁. Looks sort of like a chibi of a chibi. That should be a wallpaper.
8th May 2022, 8:49 AM That’s awesome, thanks!

And Muppet Kat wallpaper sounds like a good thing to put on my to-do list. Thanks for the idea!
8th May 2022, 12:41 AM Hope everything works out for your job and license process, and good luck on the new comics!

And I called it, Kat isn't really a super mutant; she's an impostor! She was a muppet this entire time! I'll still wait and see how my prediction for Kairo goes.
8th May 2022, 8:49 AM Thanks so much!

Haha we have muppets among us, do we? ;)
8th May 2022, 3:59 PM Crewmate: You're not a mutant, you're a muppet!
Reading this in Kermit's voice for some reason: Oh drat, you found us out! Now we have to eliminate you.

Imagine reading Kat's lines in Kermit's voice, or Evan's lines with Elmo's voice (ironic).
8th May 2022, 4:32 PM I should try both of these things X’D
8th May 2022, 9:26 PM Now I'm imagining Kairo as Big Bird; both of them talk about their lessons and emotional experiences. Let that sink in.
8th May 2022, 10:03 AM Kat's surprised frog face is the highlight of this page for me

I mean the bottom portrait is very good too, and this whole emotional scene is interesting, but the silly stuff is memorable XD

good luck with life and work! I'm also trying to launch a side comic soon... so much stuff to do.
8th May 2022, 1:23 PM For sure XD

Thank you! Yeah it can be a tricky balance. Good luck though!
9th May 2022, 10:45 PM All of Kat's expressions here are ace especially the 2nd one for obvious reasons XD, legendary.

This is been fantastic development for both of them, Kat's communicated how she felt and got Kairo to do the same. even if it took a bit of a push the fact that he could express that shows he was taking from his experiences and trying to help Kat in his own way. Can't wait to see where they go from here now that they're kinda of more on the same page!
10th May 2022, 7:25 AM Haha, thank you! ;D

And wow, thanks! Me too, maybe they’ll be butting heads a little less now <3
10th May 2022, 4:11 AM Ooooh, The Angel Professor releases on my birthday!
10th May 2022, 7:26 AM Whoah!!! ***** HAPPY BIRTHDAY!! *****
22nd Jun 2022, 8:42 PM GOSH I RELATE TO THIS SO MUCH.

I am regularly surprised when I find out people like me when it seems like they didn't at first. :-/ So glad Kat and Kairo could work it out.
22nd Jun 2022, 10:29 PM I feel like this with EVERYONE so often even when I know deep down it’s not true or fair to them to assume that. My brain is just always jumping to the most extreme conclusion wahhhh
