I. have. FINALLY. finished my comic! I started this one two years ago.
It truly all started in 2011, when I doodled a bored looking girl and decided to colour her hair in lime green. I immediately drew her brother and sister, and ideas about their personalities and lives swam into my head.
And then, in 2012, yet again from a doodle, AJ (Aamir Joshi) was born. And together, they were the story. I tried writing it as a novel but quit after a couple weeks, as usual.
I was already leaving out way too much information when it was a 70+ page comic, but getting it printed as a book has forced me to shorten it down to a mere 40!
It’s far to brief!!! It’s just a summary of the intricate, never-ending story that made my marks drop in grade 12, that has monopolized my brain for the past three years. But this is good. I have a habit of dragging things out with too much attention to detail and then getting bored (tehe) and not finishing them. (ex. bored: the novel!) The page limit forced me to complete this. And now, possibly, I’ll eventually remake this the way I wanted it: filling in the gaps, being more detailed and possibly novel-like… and hopefully actually drawing backgrounds!
Now I just have to figure out how the heck to order this book with the limited time groupon deal, and then it’ll be REAL and I can use it in my OCAD portfolio!!!
