A sort of apology redux

I thought it might be fitting to re-do the first autobio comic I did to kick off the last year or so of comic making for the last page that I am doing for my first (real) mini comic.

True life stories

For the past month and a half I've had this temp job delivering compost bins for the city of Ottawa. I had to get up really early every day which has really screwed up my sleeping schedule. I cant stay awake past 10:30pm.

The job itself is alright. Well, if you can stomach your co-workers comparing Somalians to Cockroaches(which I can't). The weird thing with these kinds of jobs is that you get some of the most undesirable people together and put them in a truck. Over the past six weeks I've heard some of the most horrific, bigoted things I have ever heard in a work place.

I feel very out of place.

Yesterday I almost sent a co-worker to the hospital by knocking over a stack of bins weighing 240lbs. It came about two inches from his face. Today I called in sick and I don't think I will be returning to the job.

Hard to believe, I know, but it's a true life story!

blah blah blah's

I've been doing a lot of work lately getting amped up for the collection of autobio comics I'm putting out near the end of the month. There's been a lot of slightly mind numbing re-lettering, rescanning and touching up some of my older comics to try to unify them with the most recent comics I've been doing.

Here's an illustration for the inside i did.

I'm really starting to enjoy using the brush. My biggest mistake about approaching the brush has been that I have been drawing much too small to get any subtlety into my line. I think in the future I am only going to use the brush when I'm drawing on a decently large scale.
