I learned a lot about midcentury cars while drawing this! They seem wildly unsafe!!
Also, I've decided to give everyone multiple outfits to wear. Dressing people in the same clothes on every page is an easy shortcut, but I think it's time to get a little more of that retro zeitgeist into this comic - and clothes can say a lot about a character. If you have an idea for a fun/cute/gaudy early-to-mid-60s outfit you'd like to see in Awkward Paws, tell me and I might put it in! I have a lot of styles lined up, but I want to engage with you folks too.

You'd think tanking some fresh oatmeal to the face would hurt a lot more than that.

That's a tough man.

Hot coffee and oatmeal to the face... Good morning! XP

At least he's bright eyed and ready for the morning now.

Right! Why eat breakfast when you can smash it into yourself instead!?

Weren't roller skating waitress a 1950s fad? Not that they weren't still around after that, I seem to have a vague memory of some local drive-in doing it when I was a kid, but '50s seems more like the peak.

They did peak during the 50s, but they were still alive during the 60s until the drive-through overtook them as people's preferred way of getting food!

I'm now imagining a gang of roller-skating waitress attacking a car that just went through a drive-through. ;-)

At least his neck was shielded from the coffee by his sweet turtleneck! (Which is now irreparably stained!)

Everything about this is a magical wonderland for the eyes. :')

Even Ian covered in oatmeal.

Especially Ian covered in oatmeal.

Someone just got a little too excited about the prospect of skating everywhere!
