100 days of diary comics (week 3)

I have been keeping a written diary since I was about 12 years old and still write in it most days. These cartoons, however, feel like a truer account of my life than any I could write. It's the small moments that shine, moments that could so easily be forgotten in the midst of larger …

When Seestra came to stay

Last week my nephew got married and it was a week full of wonderful moments. One of the threads that wove its way through the week was my sister coming to stay. Here's a comic I made about some of the things we got up to!

I was fortunate enough to spend the first three weeks of the Get Messy Season of Freedom on a tropical beach holiday in Barbados and Antigua. I wanted to pack light so I took with me a single slim sketchbook to act as a written diary and art journal combined. I also brought with me …
