Mon September 5 – Greetings

Greetings, folks. I’m making this web comic because I want to learn to draw.

Some years ago I took a college class on point/line drawing (pen & ink). Acting as unofficial TA for the class was a student who was taking it for the second time because she enjoyed it so much the first time. She was somewhat better than I was.

A few years after that, she started a web comic. Now she’s much better than I am.

There seems to be something to this “practicing every day” thing. I think I’ll try it. Of course, the corollary is that you, dear audience, will have to put up with months (years?) of crass scribbles while I grind my way to greatness. And that’s assuming I stick with this at all. Haha! You suckers!

(The student in that class went on to be my GM, friend, and housemate. We haven’t talked much since college because, let’s face it, I suck at correspondence. So she probably doesn’t realize that she’s also an inspiration … but if I get real sappy or anything she’ll send her mutant spider clone after me, so I’ll end it here. Her comic rocks.)
