Interesting bit o’ writing (on the main page now, it’ll be here in a week or so) from Scott Kurtz over at PvP; he’s talking about his treatment of his character, Jade (and by extension, his wife, Angela). I find it interesting that as Kurtz tells us he’s looking to write Jade differently, he’s also drawing her differently.

Her facial expressions are more subtle and varied than we’ve seen in the past, and seem to give her a wider range of emotional depth. Compare the last time Jade had a major role in a storyline to recent strips. Heck, compare the fourth panel of that last strip to the others on the same day to get a good idea of ‘old Jade eyes’ vs. ‘new Jade eyes’. Opening up those pupils just a little bit really has a lot of impact.
