"I Just Work Here" presents: Dork Of The Rings

Um... I was listening to the "Lord Of The Rings" soundtracks when I drew this. There's a small chance they influenced the writing on this one. At any rate, I really like drawing Darren. Because he's so overly dramatic and emotional, his expressions have to be overly dramatic and emotional, and that's a lot of fun to draw. I feel if you work in the visual arts, particularly comics, it's really useful to have at least one character whose personality and expressions are just off-the-wall.

And to be fair to the poor strange lad, there really are multiple manuals when you're working in welfare. The big ones are SNAP, Medicaid, and TANF, with a few others besides. There is no "one manual" (not in Virginia anyway) that I know of, but if I find one, I quit.
