Thanks to everyone who reached out to me by email and in comments here the past week. I’m not sure how people go through this sort of loss. Living twenty five years and escaping the fearful acknowledgement of death makes me feel like my family has won the lottery in a morbid way. Mortality should be the clearest part of our lives, and yet it is the easiest thing to ignore.
With my grandma passing away it really made me take stock of why I write these silly comics. Why do I compulsively make these things and do they really impact anyone? Am I wasting my life? Strange questions for me since I’m pretty stubborn in my belief that creating things for the good of creating is all that matters. What are your thoughts?
Regardless, the dancing monkey is back for your amusement.
I’ve been dreaming up some interesting articles and comics for this week too, so keep your eyes peeled tomorrow for this week’s schedule of goodies heading to dominate your face.
Oh and I shan’t forget this strip pre-color. Stare at the contrast and meditate on its deeper meaning:
Thanks for reading!
