Temp Tay Shun by VanHeist Temp Tay Shun by VanHeist
part 2:…

"Trouble is coming...
it's just the high cost of loving..."

It's another hot summer, and that means a big ol' slice of cheesecake is coming your way. (or a generous serving of HAMS, if you prefer)

This strip features a few rarer characters, including Andy's mom (panel 1), Hector's mom (panel 6), and Andy's dad (panel 3-4), who i don't believe i've drawn for the gallery yet. And of course, the regulars, Didi, Gogo, Pablo (who's been a little absent lately) and the "Girls Out.Rage.Ous", who typically go around a bit more covered.

It's also been awhile since I've done the "Andy as Narrator" thing (that I can recall, anyway). The poor kid tries to maintain a high-minded perspective on things, but there comes a time (adolescence is such a bitch) when against all better judgment, you're forced to admit: "Wow. I...LIKE THOSE THINGS."

Perfectly natural, of course. But as the kid says, still confusing. And it can really throw a monkey wrench in the gears of a friendship, which is why i think it's a fun topic to explore.

Anyway, savor the awkwardness. :salute:

I'm guessing that Andy's father would be Gogo's type

When Didi showed up, I literally LAUGHED-OUT-LOUD....LOUDLY! This was too hilarious, man!

Sexuality is a subject which, poorly, is told only in schools, and everybody think that a person will feel sexual attraction only in the adolescence, then any kid who has interest on people of the other sex (or the same, maybe...) is looked like a pervert, an abomination... Serious, there is no longer any conversation between kids and parents about this, and the teachers give too technical explains. I think parents should talk more about this, not only because parents can tell about it in a more 'human' way, but because this strengthens the confidence between parents and childs. Very great comic, by the way.

whats those blue things that say "hams"so often? they're soooooooo cute! Heart Love 
Dewani90 Featured By Owner Feb 8, 2014  Hobbyist General Artist
those creatures remind me of nostalgia critic when reviewing ponyo... ham is something that gigantic sea creatures obviously crave.

I'm going to think of Gogo every time I see one of those shirts now...
M4IAN Featured By Owner Jul 28, 2013
I gest Gogo never heard of a bra.
CreatureGirl Featured By Owner Jul 26, 2013
Went to the gym yesterday and expected guys to try and sneak a gander at the goods. Expected and bound to happen since it was the popular time of day, girls aren't wearing a lot and a lot of it is body hugging clothing. What I didn't expect was seeing the body building brutes were distracted from their usual *intense fast paced reps and scowl-y faces*.

At first I thought 'there must be a really hot athletic chick behind me because they can't POSSIBLY be looking at somewhat fluffy me. It took a friend to point out that, even though I was getting great support from the sport bra I wore under an already supportive sport top, the sport top has lately been growing a little loose from working out almost everyday which not only made me happy but it was doing less to hide my well-supported and pushed up chest area...making more than a few of the guys happy as well. My response was, "I did not know I was capable of that."

To say the least, I now understand Gogo's confusion and previous unawareness. And today is supposed to be my recovery day but...I want to go back to the gym. I'm getting some nice muscle definition going now. Even if it is still hiding under a layer of padding for the time being.

hams to their finest.
MickEfinn Featured By Owner Jul 25, 2013
And now I have a thought of Gogo in a very big "cake", being wheeled in by a little Pablo. Then bam! The cake explodes and she pops out dressed as Marilyn Monroe.

That would make a fine dream escapade as well.

The insane amount of work done for the infamous look might be a bit too much for Gogo to handle though.
MickEfinn Featured By Owner Jul 25, 2013
Ah, with this one I can see it going in one of three ways.

A.) Gogo attempts to "desensitize" Andy, with hilarious results. Possibly involving the prior birthday present, only now with the knowledge that Andy IS noticing, and "tormenting" him accordingly. A stretch here, a yawn there, a happy birthday mister president...

B.) Gogo decides to treat the problem like she did with Pablo, possibly involving the Cone of Shame. 

C.) Considering she can see into Hector's dreams about her, I suspect she may find out Andy is having them as well. What she intends to do about it may differ as it's Andy though... Bonus points if you have Didi observing(read chaperoning) Gogo's observing Andy's dream, that's like Inception right there.

when was the last time one word meant so much and inferred even more than "Hams"...never i tell you never...
Monstermann Featured By Owner Jul 22, 2013  Hobbyist Artisan Crafter
I love your comics. The way you mix the feelz with comedy and character development is quite unique! Always looking forward to the next strip!
I really have trouble seeing Gogo in a sexual way ever since you defined her personal hygiene as... lacking. That's kind of a turn-off. :-P

Panel 14 rather sums things up nicely. :nod:  And who knew Pablo had a sense of modesty?  He doesn't even wear clothes! :laughing:

Hereiamyellow Featured By Owner Jul 20, 2013
There are times we find the phrase "mind over matter" crumbles in the face of reality. At least the ideal that we can think around our self's instead of what we are looking at.

Andy was going somewhere before his train of thought got derailed, perhaps later. =)
JoeBombable Featured By Owner Jul 19, 2013
I like the transition you have going on from "Men demeaning women on the street for their looks." To "How a woman might be revealing in front of men."

Hey Van ! When will we see your next amazing work ? I "is" waiting impatiently !

And why Gogo uses "is" or "has" in place of "am" or "have"? I like it but just ı'm curious
