100 days of diary comics (week 6)

I've had a few moments this week where  haven't had a clue what to make a comic about! My mind goes completely blank. I have to take a few minutes to sit and think over my day. Something must have happened that I can make a comic about?! Sure enough, there always is, but it …

100 days of diary comics (week 5)

The 100 day project 2019

Does anyone else have a decision making process that looks like this? I've spent at least three weeks trying to tell myself that I am NOT taking part in the 100 day project this year. I have loads of good reasons such as the fact that I'm travelling too much and have too many other …
