I reckon comics are pretty fucken awesome. I also reckon most comics fucken suck. It’s the most amazing medium, you have more control over the viewer’s experience than anything else you can do by yourself, and most comics use it to show tough men punching each other forever.

So it’s kinda weird how long it took me to get around to the idea of making my own comics. I didn’t get started even learning to draw for a long time, and doing a whole comic intimidated the hell out of me.

This page is me getting past that intimidation, it’s me learning all the dumb mistakes that only an absolute beginner would make, and it’s me learning to really appreciate how much work goes into even the simplest comic.

At the moment, my plan is to make a new comic each month from scratch – that way I’m not tied to the awful mistakes for too long before I get a chance to do better next time. Lots of short comics, and experimenting with what works and what doesn’t.

If you’re reading this, I’d really appreciate your feedback. I’m doing my best, but a lot of the time it’s hard to have the distance to properly poke at my own work. Tell me what you like, what you hate, what interests you.
