Life has been kind of crazy over the last couple of weeks. I haven't been drawing comics. I've just been kind of... distracted I guess. My personal life took some weird, confusing turns. Things are good. Great even. Just different. It will come out in the comics over the coming weeks, I'm sure. Point being, I haven't been drawing comics. What I have been doing is writing a lot of comics.
I'm trying to be more deliberate with this issue of Boredom Pays. I've actually given myself a theme to base the issue around, and from the amount of notes that have poured into my sketchbook it's a good one. I've got a bunch of short strips written and a few longer stories gestating in my head. I'm really committed to making the next issue of Boredom Pays the best possible thing I can put out.
Which brings me to this comic. This is a mini I wrote last fall between drawings while working as a caricature artist at Canada's Wonderland. I was quite unhappy at the time and it's probably more whiny than anything else but I learned a lot about writing comics from putting this together so, despite its flaws I'm still fond of it. I figure since I won't be posting anything new for at least another week or so I would post something old that never made it onto the blog.
Also, just a reminder that I will be tabling in the small press exhibition at TCAF this Sunday from 11am-5pm! It would mean the world to me if you came by and said hi! And bought a book! So I can hopefully have enough money to eat over the next week! Yeah! Haha. See you there!
