When it all gets too much, I go for a walk in the woods. It calms me. The smells and sounds and sights get inside me and I feel alright again. It's like pressing a reset button.
I walk in the woods on my own but I am not alone. I share it with squirrels, wood pigeons, millions of insects and, to my constant delight, a herd of deer.
I felt uneasy sharing comic number 2 for 30 Days of Comics online. My first comic had gone well, and I felt a pressure to do something similar. An unnecessary pressure that I placed on myself.
My comic number 1 for 30 Days of Comics was inspired by my Nana. "Don't get old," she said to me from her hospital bed. "I'll try," I replied.
30 Days of Comics is a challenge for comic artists. The challenge is to draw 1-2 pages of comics every day of November, and share them on social media using the hashtag #30dayscomics.
