Here’s part 1 of our Medusa break!
Meta… I kinda wanna see a full fourth wall break, like with Modest learning she’s not real. lol
One of my old plans was to have Modest discover what Jake does for a living, which is make a autbio webcomic about his life with Modest. She’d get super upset because she thinks he does a bad job. So suddenly the coic would take a hard shift because Modest starts writing it.
That could be extremely diverting. She does have her own worldview, and not just because she’s…five, is it? Or is she six by now?
She just had her 7th birthday at the beginning of this season.
The fact that MEdusa call her Mom is so precious 😀
She has probably never heard her called anything else. And since Medusa doesn’t call her mom “Mom”, what other name would she use? (I could be wrong about the not calling her mom “Mom”; can’t remember.)
I think she did call the Gorgon Mom, but they only ever interacted for 3 pages.
Modest has also called Marah’s mother Mom. I’ve noticed this is pretty common with some kids.
This is cute and funny. I really wanna hug her!
Don’t we all? 😉
Hey, she tied up her hair again!
Poor strangular snakies.
. . . Aaaand why doesn’t she think you’re an artist?
Well, we’ve only ever seen Jake draw anything once in the comic. She probably doesn’t pay any attention to what he does.
I think I already know the answer. (Sorry, I meant to post this with my first comment.)
Not goofing around – and making a mess.
Just accuse them of making a mess before they even get a chance to. That takes all of the fun out of it.
Like there’s not going to be a mess anyhow. At some point moving always turns into, “Just dump it in a box. We can sort it all when we unpack.”
Ah, man, this one made my day, thanks!
I mean let’s look at the facts here:
Jake never wears a beret.
He isn’t constantly smeared with paint somewhere.
Not to mention I’ve never once seen him hold an easel.
How could he possibly be an artist?
IRL my hands always have ink and paint on them.
But I betcha that in his world, there’s a happy little tree or two.
Has Modest never seen a drawing Jake made?
Jake, are you hiding your drawings from her?
In the comic she’s seen Jake draw once.
I think she just doesn’t pay a lot of attention.
But he doesn’t wear the silly round hat! And he doesn’t paint!
Nor does he speak with an outrageous French accent. Or…does he?
You, sir, are an artist.
(As if there was any doubt.)
Ha! That’s awesome. I guess to Modest you are just a purveyor of chocodiles.
Your creation is rather sassy towards you, isn’t she?
Dude you have got to tell me where you found your avatar.
Jake: comic artist by day, vigilante crime-fighter by night!
How do you stand having such a sassy-no-pants like that living in your house, Jake?
(And, in your head, Jake~?)
Its really a challenge.
I just noticed that her hair is tied back into a…er…what should we call that version of a ponytail?
By answer I meant why she doesn’t think you’re an artist. Which is comics not being considered art atleast to her naive small child mind thinking that art is exclusively the big portraits and fancy statues.
