In the course of drawing new strips to pick up where this webcomic left off two years ago, I realize I dawdle over details a bit too much. That establishing interior shot of the cafe is nicely drawn, right? But a bit too nicely. I could have gotten across that this was a coffeehouse in far fewer strokes, I suppose. Honestly, the opening exterior shot was probably enough. We could have moved directly to panel 2, or even made panel 2 a medium shot of Michelle getting her coffee and ending a transaction with the barista.

ANYWAY, as mentioned in the commentary for the original posting of this strip on May 9, 2012, Cup A’ Joe is visually modeled pretty much entirely on long-but-dearly-departed Las Vegas java joint Cafe Espresso Roma. There’s your fun fact for the day.
