This first strip is modeled after the computer lab that I worked in while at NYU and the exact seat that the TA’s used in that lab. I changed it later on because it’s kind of awkward drawing the characters from the back. Plus it’s plain easier to draw the character sitting at a desk than this setup here. The computer lab I worked in was kind of badly set up in that the TAs always had their backs to the people in the office making it look like they were busy and unapproachable all the time when usually we’re just obsessively checking our email (at least, that’s what I was doing).
