Here is a comic I started on June 14th but just finished inking today:
Although this trend of bodily harm (in comics form) may seem worrisome, things aren’t really all that bad. I think I’ve just been feeling the general exhaustion of the end-of-school year time. For one thing, even though the end of school should feel like a relief, it’s also a time of transition. Less time spent working in the school means more time to work on comics, which is great, but it also means a mental shifting of gears as I attempt to create and maintain a new comics-making schedule. Also this has been a pretty difficult school year, with a major push towards the end that consisted of coaching our students through final exams, Saturday study sessions, year-end events, and hours of paperwork and data entry. Much like the last leg of a race, it’s exhausting, and made me want to sit down, a little dazed, to catch my breath. Also it felt like the end was never actually going to come! There was always one more thing to do, and it’s only in the last few days that I’ve felt the dust has really begun to settle.
But! A few more sunny days and I’m sure I’ll feel re-charged. This week’s project: an autobiographical story for an upcoming anthology about bad roommates. Previews to follow shortly.
