September 24 was Austin's birthday (from Here We Are). I didn't do much for Jake's birthday due to my busyness, so I figured I'd finally draw some of these side stories that have been floating around in my notebook. These comics are best read after arc 1/ch.1-11 + extra. Even better if you've read the printed/digital copies' exclusive extras.
The fate of this other man is left up to your imagination. Jake's outfit is 100% inspired by the Sims 4 version of Jake that wears a really skin tight party outfit, haha. I also remember walking around Pride Festival and seeing people who were hired to just be body-candy. Despite how scrappy these comics tend to be, they're really an exercise in being concise, which can take longer to plan out.
I enjoy seeing other artists' illustration when they have have a background/scene going on, so I thought I'd give it a try. This scene feels distant future to me since it would be very rare for them to dress up together. I'm not very good at doing AUs for my own OCs...Austin only owns one suit and doesn't really like wearing neckties. Jake probably owns some fashion suits (skinny/tight look). Students don't have money for fancy suits!
Ever since I did HWAnimation I've been into longer-hair Austin...where the wavyness of his hair is a bit more obvious. It's primarily a winter hairstyle. Jake lets the top of his hair grow out too, but it's still faded on the back/sides.
