This is a conundrum. Where do I, Keith the blog writer, exist in the meta-context of this comic?
Am I mad at the incomplete by-product of Sophie’s proclivity for living dangerously in the world of PhotoShop? Or do I acknowledge my own part in the design of the strip as intentionally hilarious?
By blurring the lines here between ourselves as characters in the strips, real people in the actual world, and controlled versions of ourselves within the website these things are often ambiguous. Which I like.
Keith does all sorts of things here on 9to5.cc, he works with the other founders on 9to5 (illustrated), co-hosts our two podcasts: The 9to5 Entertainment System and Go Plug Yourself and blogs here as The Perspicacious Geek.
