Shaenon: I have no interest in clothes and generally dress my characters in the same T-shirt-and-jeans combos I wear, so I’m not sure why, for Skin Horse, I was suddenly seized with the desire to draw a fashion-conscious cross-dresser. If nothing else, it’s forced me to be at least marginally creative about clothing. I got some fashion books and copied outfits to get ideas for things Tip could wear. Here he is in full evening dress; I’d love to find a way to work an outfit like this into the strip.

Channing: Like Shaenon, I’m not terribly interested in clothes. Unlike Shaenon, I don’t have a knack for writing them, either. Pretty much every cool thing you see Tip wear in this strip comes from her end of the scripting.
