First JODDAS VAPD strip: Banana Split Flavored Oreo
Alice is a character that’s sort of based off this annoying girl from Middle School when I moved to Oregon. She would always sit behind me as I was drawing comic strips and read over my shoulders. Alice then became a character I based a lot of preppy girls in my high school while still attaining the annoyance of the girl from Middle school.
Later on during the Life Sucks page I developed a desire to draw random pictures of fantasy characters. You might notice two characters look awfully familiar to some of my characters today.
So when I started writing Life Stinks I wanted to include some female characters, but there were only three girls that really influenced me at that time. So I imagined that girl from middle school whenever coming up with Alice in Life Stinks. Alice was a sneaky girl with a crush on a certain boy. She was also the same height as everyone back then apparently.
Alice as a character then began to grow on me and I felt a loving connection with the little girl. She may seem lame to some people, but I feel she’s an important part of JODDAS VAPD and she kind of helps with the cute factor in my comics.
Alice is young girl who has a different perspective in life. She thinks life is full of positives and her height should not be a problem. She may look like a child, but she has the mouth of an adult and she’s not afraid to show it. Alice may act girly, but sometimes being girly isn’t a terrible thing. Her friends may tease her all the time, but in the end she knows they care for her just as she cares for them.
