Todd and I recently looked at possible ways to improve Little Scottie and came up with some fundamental changes:
• less reliance on current events, more on characters and plot;
• more dynamic and stylized illustrations; and
• smaller, narrower lettering to allow for more detailed drawings.

We hope that these changes make the comic easier to follow and more entertaining to read.

This the first comic where we've applied many of these changes, so please let us know what you think. If you like what we're doing, please tell us! If you don't like it, we want to know that too.
Scott A. Winer / Writer, Little Scottie

In the spirit of positive change every panel of this comic is entirely hand drawn in a slightly different style. Clearly it does not have the copy/paste precision of some of the past comics, but I think it is an improvement. I hope to continue to develop my abilities as an illustrator by not taking shortcuts. The comic already has more visual interest and it can only get better.
Todd Pickrell / Illustrator, Little Scottie
