Since I’ve drawn enough comics that even if I wasn’t gone right now, I’d still have drawn enough to have reached this anniversary normally, I’m more prepared to talk about this than my 3 year anniversary.
2 years, wow. I remember that feeling like so much bigger an accomplishment before I started, now, without this moment of self recollection, it feels like another day in the process. Still it definitely feels like an accomplishment and granted the lack of feeling might also be coming from the fact that I am writing this in July.
I think the biggest thing I’m thinking right now is that’s been two years and I haven’t even gotten to all the juicy stuff yet. In my pre comic foolishness, I thought by two years I would have gotten to all the marriages and heartbreaks and murders and political intrigue I planned (I may not actually have planned all that.) heck by page 100 for some reason I expected to have reached the climax of my story, and that’s certainly silly to me now.
So in the end, I can’t say much about a two year anniversary, I’m writing this like 3 months before I actually reached this, and I’ve become a bit (only a bit) disillusioned with these years of progress. On that note however, I’ve never done something completely of my own free will for two whole years. This comic is so important to me, I definitely care about it; Like I said it’s one of the first things I’ve done and really kept up on. It’s been a big part in showing me that what I like to do is tell stories. Thanks to all of you who read this, whether you just found this or are one of the two people who read this from the start, I hope you continue to read and enjoy this.
