Strip 001 :: Sunday 2006-12-17 :: Greyscale version :: Colour version
Strip 001
To repeat a slightly threadbare Christian analogy: this is the mustard seed from which Grace and Caffeine grew.  The idea for this strip occurred to me just minutes before putting the YBC notice sheet in the photocopier on Sunday 17 December 2006, and I scribbled it down in pencil in a bit of empty space, next door to one of those announcements that our next celebration of the Lord's Supper was going to be rearranged from its usual time of month to a different one for some arcane reason... and it all went from there.
I subsequently re-drew the episode in ink, to improve the picture quality, but although what you see here is not the original strip, it is in its essentials the same thing.


Strip 002 :: Sunday 2006-12-24 :: Greyscale version
Strip 002
Crunch time - the first cartoon worked, but would the second?  It seemed to work, and the weekly habit began to form.  As with Strip 001, this one has been re-drawn to fix some issues with the original artwork.


Strip 003 :: Sunday 2006-12-31 :: Greyscale version
Strip 003
New Year's Eve was a Sunday in 2006, so I drew this to mark the occasion.  Unlike the other two strips on this page, this one is actually the original version, not a remake.
