The first panel shows a depth of field we haven’t really seen in SF thus far. My goal was to do a drawing that would also work well as a group shot and, possibly, a wallpaper.  Plans are in the works for just such a thing.

Obviously, this is a huge change of pace for SF.  The decision to go essentially jokeless and do the cute thing was born out trying to balance the tot with the dictator.  I think it’s a nice breather from the otherwise wordy strips I usually write.
