Libby Sk8er Girl defines Brian as:
Someone who believes he can draw the planet Earth without looking at a reference and decides that Australia ought to be the focal point, even though he does not live in Australia and has, in fact, never been in the same hemisphere as Australia. Not only that, but Russia is strangely cut off and Japan is probably a little too big and too far south. This is excusable, however, because Brian knows that anyone with actual sense recognizes that a comic about a young woman who rides a skateboard in a crop top in the dead of winter has a loose commitment to depicting reality that makes cartographic ineptitude the least of one's worries.
Additionally, Brian is a person who will gladly point to his reasonable ability to draw a cartoon of the moon as evidence for why drawing Earth should be no problem whatsoever. Of course, we can see above that having a rough idea of how the land bordering the Pacific Ocean is shaped is probably sufficient for a joke to reference a 43-year-old work of fiction as a result of the number of a particular issue of a previously mentioned comic. In short, despite many people probably thinking Brian should be doing something else, Brian appears to find greater joy in random nonsense than in the important things in life…
At that point, Brian wanted me to say how he is probably smarter than the rest of us and we should all strive to be more like Brian, but like…should we really? I mean, Brian is the one who didn't promote last week's issue of my comic in the Brandy de Hex notes, even though what little Scribb1e I had last week was largely devoted to promoting that [w]itch's stupid appearance. What's the big idea, Dude?!? It's cheap! And a total rip-off!
In other news, as of last night, Brian is done with his first semester of graduate school!!! That means he'll maybe have a couple weeks to focus on ME!!! (and maybe other artsy shit, but mostly me.) Keep your eyes peeled, and if you like any of this stuff, be sure to share it with your friends and family (with credit, of course). That way, Brian might one day not have to be in graduate school, because he will have become a bazillionaire off of the hard work and dedication of fictional characters like me! (Honestly, that's probably a good thing, since it will cut down on Brian's gasoline usage and would also increase the scope of my existence!)
Oh, and don't panic! There will be another comic next week. It should be mostly harmless.
