Comic Week 6

I know, I know. My comics are usually posted early but with Disting tonight, errands that needed to be done, and my son getting up super early it was better for me to post later so I can focus my entire energy on it. This week I decided that I would use Adobe Illustrator rather than Photoshop and even experimented with color. I think I may be on to something with the hand-drawn elements, vectors, and colors. What do you think?

The situation that this is covering is the fact that I sat on the fence about cutting my hair. I felt so bad about myself at work that I needed a positive change. Then my anxiety ‘cat’ kicked in with all the self-doubt and worries. FYI I’m now in love with my shorter hair.

Happy Saturday Y’all!

Week 4 Comic

I had a wonderful idea for my comic that woke me up. I am an OK doodler when I want to be but a horrible digital doodler. I worked on this for a couple hours this morning and realized it’s a doodle and it’s part of my new year’s goal to be creative. My little anxiety cat helped with my weigh-in this week as Y’all have already seen. This pretty much sums up what my weigh-in days feel like.

Week 3 Comic: Jo Has a Cat

I have been working on this comic here and there all day. I couldn’t nail a concept then the idea of what was going on in my character’s world kept changing. I don’t have a cat but I feel like my anxiety is like a cat sometimes and today I wanted to illustrate the stealthiness of it.

This week I ‘fleshed’ the character out a bit more and gave her hair that literally has a mind of its own. Mine has so many layers from different stylists that I may need to cut it into a short bob just to even everything out. I wanted that for the girl in the comic. This is a way for me to make light of my C-PTSD at times and I’m hoping to introduce new characters throughout. I have committed to 52 weeks (a year’s worth) of comic doodles. I don’t quite have a name for my little comic yet. Any ideas?
