So here we have Part 2! This strip was longer than the ones I draw now, and I couldn’t have all the build-up I wanted if I cut it into 4 panels. So that was why I decided to cut it into 2 parts for these strips! I particularly like Chapel’s expressions here, especially in the 3rd panel. And Chibi Chapel at the end wrapping up her story gets me every time! That was a detail I didn’t have in the original strip, so I’m glad I could add it.
For Season Two, I wanted to create a game room where Chapel and Fred play their games and Chapel engages in her flights of fancy. I decided on an old-fashioned room with wood paneling and I imagine it’s full of games like the darts on the wall.
The title of this strip is in reference to the song The Gambler by Kenny Rogers. I Googled it and found cool references to The Muppets, David Tennant in Blackpool, and Alvin and the Chipmunks, but none of those are as cool as my mom telling me that during my dad’s years at Apple, when he had a beard, some people would ask him, “hey, are you Kenny Rogers?”
Go ahead make my day wheres your full house fred? Oh right, you dont have one. The moment of truth Full house 3 kings, pair of 10s. Four aces, one queen! Four aces! Thats insane He mustve cheated Thats right fred, Im on to your little game. See? Reason No. 100 you cant trust Fred

The League of Fonts
THE LEAGUE OF FONTS is where typefaces are born. Every time a font is created in the world, it manifests as a living, breathing, Font – human for all intents and purposes, but unable to age or die unless their typeface falls into disuse. They live together on the League of Fonts, which serves as a secret island hub, bustling corporation, and home. It’s a world full of its own internal intrigues like any office, and Times New Roman is its powerful CEO. He’s got a lot on his plate lately: planning the League’s famous Decennial party, struggling with modern technology, and hiding his embarrassing addiction to the Twilight movies. Times New Roman is confident he can keep everything under control…but what’s an old font to do when a young boy named Louis Pepping accidentally stumbles onto the secrets of the League?
