Welcome to a dark world where I forgot to put the right date on several comics.
I bought a car a few months ago when I started my internship, and it helped me find out that I've been nearsighted for years (a clue was that I couldn't read any roadsigns, at all, anywhere). So I got some driving glasses.
Part of me didn't want to wear them because I've always interpreted glasses as a facial feature, and I didn't want to change my face. My dad wore the same big round glasses for the first fifteen years of my life, and when he came home one day with thin rectangular frames I kept asking myself why he was squinting all the time.
The point is I've always really dreaded having to draw glasses, since it's hard to balance between them getting completely lost in the face or blocking out the expression entirely.
