Those of you who’ve been following this comic for a while may remember a stretch of time last year between spring and fall when I didn’t update it for a while. One reason for this was that I was very busy with Girlbot and other projects, but another was that I’d started drawing auto-bio journal comics in a moleskine sketchbook with the intention of publishing them (roughly) as I drew them. The plan was to make one, on average, every day of the summer and have a nice little graphic novel by the end of it, chronicling whatever journey I found myself on between June and September. I didn’t know what to expect, but I knew it was going to be interesting. It turns out that whatever I may have expected wasn’t anything like what I actually got, as you’ll see.
Well, it got away from me, and I didn’t end up posting them when I meant to. At the end of the summer, I was left with a sketchbook with lots of finished art but also many more pages in various stages of incompletion. Around the beginning of fall, I got busy enough that I shoved it to the back burner entirely, vowing to come back to it as soon as things let up. Things haven’t let up at all, but I figured I had to make the time for it or else I was never going to get it out the door.
So one of the piles of work on my plate currently is finishing whatever pages in the book still need polishing and getting it all online. If enough people like it, I may publish it as its own standalone book. That wouldn’t be until some time in the summer, anyway.
While I’m posting this work online, I’ll be putting a new page up every weekday. Each page will be a single day from the sketchbook, which could be a single page, a half-page, or two pages stacked on top of each other. I’m pretty excited that I’m finally doing this. It’s been a long time coming!
