Day 30 – #30dayscomics

I’d sort of geared myself up to this last entry being something special, if not spectacular. Chalk it down to hubris then that today’s schedule turned out to be entire rubbish, leaving me to draw November’s last comic at 9PM, utterly drained of energy.

Apologies are due to Jacob @anport Ørsted, whose one-time tweet I had already decided to use as a script; it turned out crap, and I’ll have to try it again later. Sorry! The script, as you will see, is leagues better than the comic:

Day 27 – #30dayscomics

Today’s entry is in reply to a Twitter conversation I had yesterday with @FrauLizling. She got so frustrated with her work that she deleted the majority of her blog posts and burned her sketchbooks:

@ Everyone says to keep working, but that shit is hard! xD How the bloody hell do you do it?
@FrauLizling
Lizling Claire

My reply was rather glib (“It’s all I know how to do”) but sitting down with my sketchbook this morning, the question was still churning in my mind. How do you keep working and improving yourself, especially when the world seems to be struggling against you? My answer:
