my whole family has been wiped out by a terrible head/chest cold as winter lingers & spring tries to pop in. happy spring equinox, by the way. it is tricky trying to write & draw a comic while being a sick, exhausted mama nursing sick, grumpy babes and going to school half time. i love my writer’s workshop, but i dread my geography. i need to just do it…oh well. i have already prepped myself for not getting an “a” in geography. i’m a bit of a geek and hate not having a 4.0 gpa…but sometimes i have to surrender control and do the parenting thing & write comics and let the homework slide a bit. the stuff that makes me happy and keeps me sane should come first.
onto the page for today. we are finding out stuff about the world we are in & the people we are in it with through some casual late night conversation. there was whiskey…i’m not sure where the whiskey went. i am going to assume it is behind the dialogue bubbles. the characters so far are moses jones, lucy, susan, and jacob. there are a handful more residents in the house, but these are the only ones we have met so far.
i look forward to a time when i can draw the other characters more consistently and without staring at the cast picture i have hung up by my desk–or by checking back to previous pages. susan looks a bit off in this one. and mojo has a very fluid appearance. i’m blaming the poorly lit kitchen they are sitting in at a dystopia society that uses what? for power & light source. windmills? solar? i guess that one will be figured out eventually….
