Yeah, I recycled the gag. The Yellow Sticky was drawn first, but went online later.

A little backstory for anyone who doesn't know what you're talking about: Back when I had stopped doing NtK and didn't realise it'd be starting again in a couple of years, I developed a doodling habit at work. I used to draw on yellow sticky notes, and after a little while I started captioning the doodles. I ended up with a stack of maybe 400 single-panel comics before my supervisor gave out to me and I had to stop.

I was just taking these things home in my wallet and showing them to my friends. There's not a whole lot of forethought put into them, most of the time I'd just start out drawing an eye or a nose or something and just go from there. There are a couple of good gags and concepts, but it's all pretty raw and unfiltered.

Anyway, the yellow stickies were part of what got me back into making Neko - I built up a full calendar's worth of panels before the realisation hit: I can't NOT make comics. That seemed like the best reason in the world to pick up the pen properly again, and my girlfriend at the time gave me the nudge I needed to get back to NtK.

I uploaded a bunch of the doodles, and you can see them at http://yellowsticky.smackjeeves.com/ I didn't put them all online because, well, that's a lot of scanning and uploading and I got sick of it.

well, im glad you came back to it. most webcomics ive seen bore me to tears, and im sick of them like 5 strips in.

Yours on the other hand, i cant get enough of. it might just be because im totally in love with Keno, though. anything with him or Murphy in it and i just squee :3

or anything where Neko wears a hat too :P
