Knit one, purl one. Easy.

Love it–his confidence gives me a huge sense of release if it it didn’t do the same for our protagonist. Of course the tension now is to see which position will turn out to have been correct.
I know this is not the first character that has had a face where only the eyes are used to change expression. But I was looking at the bottom left panel on this and my mind went “wait…has he always had no mouth?” I think that is an incredible accomplishment. I remember, after having watched and loved the Wallace and Gromit shorts, seeing an article about them and it mentioned that Gromit doesn’t talk. I was like “wut…oh that’s right!”. Gromit is *so* expressive that it actually hadn’t really registered in my mind that he never says anything. To me that was just a huge endorsement of their artistry, and I think it says the same about your work. This is a really important character to which a lot of attention is drawn, but you get so much out of everything else (words, posture, and of course the eyes) that I literally did not register his lack of any other facial features.
I’m so pleased you feel this way. I tend to use the eyes and posture as much as possible, and the teeth only once a year for impact. 🙂
You know, sympathy for Juliana may get Fawn into trouble down the line; but I’ve got a feeling that this guy, while providing an opportunity for additional exposition, is more likely to be bad news outright. Who is that into Bright World? It does not bode well.
