100 days of diary comics (week 11)

These diary comics are so deeply satisfying and seem to capture the feeling of the moments I most cherish from my day. I think it's no coincidence that I have hardly taken any photos since I began this project! Here are some cherished moments from the last week.

100 days of diary comics (week 8)

One of the things that has struck me as I have been making my diary comics this week is how I've been taking fewer photos when I get together with friends and family. This is because I know that my daily comic will be able to capture the feeling of being together in ways I …

100 days of diary comics (week 7)

This was a rather intense week! I started in a shadowy mood, got totally affected by the full moon in Scorpio, and ended with grieving the loss of one of my favourite TV shows. Up to this point in my 100 days project, I have been mainly concerned with choosing something that happened during the …

This week saw me traveling up to Liverpool for a wonderful gathering of a few of the beautiful women from our women's circle. Each night I made a comic capturing something of the flavour of the day. It was great fun showing everyone the comics at breakfast! I love how they ended up being a …
