There are two Easter eggs in the last panel. First, the designs of the chess pieces are taken from my dad’s original “Through the Looking Glass” game for the Mac. Second, the position of the pieces is the exact one represented by the characters when Alice checkmates in Lewis Carroll’s book “Through the Looking Glass,” only with the black and white suits reversed, because I didn’t feel like coloring all of Chapel’s horses black.

Hi Emma,
Sunshine commented about finding out about Chapel in Kiki magazine and also mentioned stone soup. I used to get the kiki magazine and submit a ton of work to stone soup. Since you have gotten your work in stone soup, can you give me some tips on how to get my work into the magazine?
Stoat girl 2/8/13 reply
Yes! It's important to always get an idea of what work Stone Soup is looking for. If you want to write, look through their stories and see what topics they publish stories about. If you want to draw, look through the drawings and see what they look like. Stone Soup tends to publish work with a certain subject matter, so you need to tailor your work to be something you think they'd like! It's also always very important to write a polite cover letter on nice stationary so that they take notice of you -- but overall, the main tip is to be careful about what you submit to them, and maybe write or draw something that's specifically something that they would like.

I'm not really great at chess, mostly because I get bored after 10 seconds. Also, has anyone ever told Chapel she looks cool on a horse?

She looks super cool, I know! It was fun to draw.

I know, I always cringe for her when I draw Fred strips...
 Emma  11/4/11 reply
Fred seems pretty annoying.....
Ginny Weasley fan 11/4/11 reply
Yeah. Oh, and if you want, you can email me at: etc[at]chapelchronicles[dot]com.

The 3rd easter egg is the foreshadowing of the last strip...

Indeed...

to stand in the sunlight, rather than hide in the shadow of our parents is a remarkable feat, well done fledgling :)

This comic blows my mind!

Wow, thanks so much! I'm glad you like my Chapel strips!

The weight of the lance. The burden of my duty. CHARGE! I, like Sir Lancdelot before me, must protect my king at all costs! NEIGH NEIGH Checkmate, Chapel! Sometimes, chivalry only goes so far.
