Morning Glory


I've been taking way too long on my comics lately so I figured I would try to do one without a brush using much smaller paper to crank it out in a couple of hours. It's so hard to capture the spontaneity of life if you're only putting out a comic a month.

Something my buddy Ed wrote over on his blog made me give a lot of thought to what I've been doing:

"I'm learning that the only way I really learn is by constantly fucking up and failing rather than simply perfecting to the point of masturbation. And it's that idea that everything has to be perfect that keeps me from having fun with my imaginative stuff."

We should strive to fuck up by trying not to. Otherwise we're not learning anything.

I think I'm going to do more of these.

I think this is great! The detail and textures you get make it look like you worked on it for days. maybe try to do a small one or two hour one every other day or so and work on a month long, super polished one at the same time! then you get an awesome comic with the long one while getting instantaneous gratification with the dailies!

That's a good idea Mr. Spina :)
