The first in a series of new comic strips I'm putting on my website. I wanted to do a comic on my site for a long time but I didn't know what to do it about. Finally I just decided to draw what I felt like drawing, without any scripts or pencils....just drawing straight in ink whatever came into my head, even though (and especially) if nobody else understands it.
"Every Day Today" is a story about someone who goes on a journey, although what that journey is for and where she's going is not known yet, and probably never will be. Everything in the story is about things that happen to me or what I'm thinking about right when I draw a certain panel. You're not supposed to get it and there's no deeper meaning. I just wanted to do a comic that's entirely me with no pressure about whether it will sell or who will buy it, and can be interpreted by other people however they want.
I also wanted to do a comic that was entirely traditional media. I'm really tired of the over-processed, computer-colored anime art I see everywhere nowadays, where everything is glossy and filtered and polished to death and optimized for poster prints or 8x10's. Just once I wanted to do an all pen-and-ink work that's instant, with no scripts and no forethought.
