Love in an Elevator

I like Roofus' speech. He's just saying what we're thinking. Plus, the idea of someone bursting into a dramatic monologue in a silent elevator makes me laugh. When I first started Roofus, I lettered the strip by hand, as shown in the original black and white artwork above. This was very time consuming and sometimes sloppy. A few years ago, I decided to letter the strip digitally using a comic-style font. Lettering on the computer is not only faster, but it also allows me to edit dialogue easily, which is crucial to the writing process.
