It’s been ages since I’ve done one of these posts, hasn’t it? I wanted to be further along in Echo Effect already, but I’ve been busy with commissions, and paid work needs to come first.
Anyway, here are the latest strips, plus some trivia about them!
- The last time Nicholas looked at photos of himself, he tore them up and cried. So, even though this isn't exactly a happy strip, I still view it as a positive one.
- The outfits seen in that photo album are the same ones Nicholas wore throughout volume one.
- Even though I’ve had the entire series plotted since 2012, I’m never quite sure which strip certain scenes will land on, so I was glad to have something this pivotal for #200!
- Coco and Nicholas are both wearing the outfits they had on at the start of the webcomic! (Not counting Coco’s nightwear from the first two strips, obviously…)
- I originally planned for there to be more details—like, y’know, people—in the background, but I just couldn’t get it to work. (High school hallways will be the death of me. Well, the death of my drawing hand. Same thing, right?)
- There was supposed to be another strip between this one and #200, while they were still in front of Nicholas’ house. I realized it ended on a similar beat to this one, though, so I nixed it.

Strip #202 is currently being drawn, so...hopefully it won't be too long before all of you can see it!
