I'd originally had a different story in mind this week, but a family emergency popped up. Everything's fine now, but it felt glib to do the initial idea. This got me thinking about just how open do you really want to be with a diary comic? I'm an extreme introvert, so this has been a challenging project, both artistically and personally. I'm still trying to discover that balance between showing enough to be human (confessing my Rick Grimes crush) while keeping a certain amount of personal space (not telling you what size jeans I actually bought).
And yes, I like the new Avril Lavigne single. I don't care if that undermines every Pitchfork approved playlist in my possession. Sometimes I even sing along to it in the car.
