Couldn’t Stay Off the Birdwire

Last year about this time I was trying to read a dry old tome about writing and drawing comic strips, which I soon ditched for Scott McLeod’s much flashier Making Comics. The dry old tome did have one good bit of advice though: stay off the desert island. That is, don’t gravitate toward over-used settings, scenarios, or plots. Well, I managed to stay off the desert island all this time, but then I felt the tug of that old cliched birdwire. No one is perfect in comics, least of all me!

Winter’s Aftermath: The Newscast

My boyfriend and I are playing with the sense of relief everybody feels after a wrathful winter such as the one we just had. Sadly not the best lighting, but we gave it our all with the script.
