I have just completed my first comic! (Yes, I’ve been absent for months, and it’s probably rude to just show up without excuse or explanation … but surely by now folks know that this is my way.)

Pamela’s encouragement to confront my belief that I can’t draw was entirely the reason I signed up for this class (and for another class I’ll post about later). I still haven’t managed to draw my egg, but taking this class has been an amazing experience for me.
