    And yes, I know it’s not Halloween yet…

    How Darby met “Emma Goldman”

    This one dates itself, I’m afraid. Just think imagine Trump in place of Romney. I decided to share it again just because I like the voodoo bit.

    Whatever tabloid this came from was poorly edited. That should be “has” fueled speculation…

    I think I really pushed it with this one, early on. The fact that it didn’t get me kicked off Sherpa probably made me try even bolder stuff, as time went on.

    I was tempted to redo this one—I can draw Darby a lot sexier now. But all my favorite strips, even Calvin and Hobbes, have improved visually over time, and I figure newer fans might like to see the difference…

    I like the Randy Newman version.

    It’s weird. The art in these early strips isn’t as slick as the stuff I’m doing now, but I think the writing here is closer to the spirit of what I wanted Jillpoke Bohemia to be. The newer strips are better drawn, but the writing, in my opinion, isn’t as good…or at least not as true to the characters.

    I liked Karen and wish now I’d kept her around longer. I knew Darby and Kieran would become lovers eventually, but I think I probably rushed hooking them up. In retrospect, I think the sexual tension between the two got consummated a little early.

    Another badly drawn, early installment of Jillpoke Bohemia. This episode takes place before Darby became romantically involved with Kieran, when the two were still just roommates and musical partners. In other words, they hadn’t started making sheet* music (*"between the sheets") yet. Like Darby and Kieran, Darby and Robbie would break up and get back together again further down the road, after Kieran and Darby had been together and broken up. Darby would eventually find her way back to Kieran, but only after briefly dating Jazzie’s brother Ash, by which time Kieran had become engaged to and broken up with Melydia Jordan. Sounds like a soap opera, doesn’t it?

    Please forgive the crude artwork. This is a very early installment of Jillpoke Bohemia, done while I was still learning how to draw with a mouse. If a Jillpoke Bohemia retrospective is ever published in book form, these are among the strips I would include…
