The new character is Cocoa! :D I modeled their art studio after what my own dream art studio would look like, part greenhouse and filled with weird and quirky things :p
What could be in those shredded paper? How are they going to piece them all together? Find out next time!
In other news, I am looking into getting a Patreon account in the near future to help fund this comic. I'm very busy with lots of projects, and the intense amount of drawing I did at the beginning of working on Fisheye Placebo actually caused me permanent hand damage. Now my right hand hurts a lot if I'm drawing for too long (even though I take breaks and do hand exercises), and the nails on my right hand are perpetually deformed from constantly gripping a pen (I went to 3 doctors about this and none of them could help) Hopefully with more support on Patreon, I'll be able to afford a helper to lessen the load on my hand.
Vance just wanted to make the most out of his college experience under a totalitarian regime, and if that meant hacking into the university to assign himself a hot female roommate, then so be it. The last thing he expected was to be dragged into a crazy conspiracy to overthrow the government by his most-definitely-not-female roommate. College was meant to be exciting, but not this exciting. Between failed dates, failed grades, and successful hacks, Vance will slowly begin to question the morality of his actions and the true price of freedom.
