this is my first comic comic. i wrote a comic called “confusion perfume” for about 3 years (1999-2002), and this is the very first one. i was going to start putting out a zine and started writing this comic for the zine, but then never put the zine together.
berenice is moses jones’s first incarnation. i’m not sure you can read the words in this–it’s kind of rough–but i am overwhelmed with my geography class right now, and i thought it might be fun to go back in time.
i loved doing “confusion perfume” and would have kept doing it but never could figure out how to work in the kids once they started appearing in my life. i actually gave up the comic shortly after meeting the dad of my kids. i was “happy” and that affected my work–haha.
