DogEars was a comic segment created for a literature-focused magazine in Bangalore. It featured a little girl Ally and her Shakespearean dog Theo, presented in spot illustrations and cheeky comic strips that riffed on popular books and publishing trends.

A gag comic like this was a great place to hone writing abilities, with the 3 panels representing the beginning-middle-end structure of storytelling. Or in the context of comedy, you set up the situation (beginning), heighten the drama (middle), and subvert the expectation (end).
