I always say that I like cold dreary weather, but then I get my fill of it and miss the sun and staying warm. Right now it's indoor light hooded sweatshirt weather, full of days kept busy with reading and drinking warm beverages.

Thinking about some ideas for my next comic. They start off vague and gain a little weight eventually. There will be a story, I promise, and not just panels of people sleeping or downpours. Well, if I go with either of these concepts.
I've also been reading some short stories that exhibit a mundane environment as a surreal horror element. An empty neighborhood by the sea, a set of houses in the middle of a field, a sandy island covered in willows; all of them brought up some anxious feelings of dread as I read about them. If I can apply some this to my next comic, it would at least be a good exercise at drawing better backgrounds, trees, houses, etc.

This is how I met my wife. It was a long lonely road leading up to that New Year's party. It's nuts when you meet someone that you stay with and you realize that the two of you probably passed each other on the street a good number of times before your eyes ever caught each other. Circumstances, etc. Things happen for a reason and you meet that someone when you're supposed to, I guess.

I did this five years ago during the winter. At the bottom you can see where I not only noted the date, but also added "clear out, 33 degress F". Just thought future generations should know what weather conditions I drew this under. Also, I'm a weather nerd.

It's been nice getting a little rain lately. Our blueberry bush is fried and my sinuses are dried out, but a little rain can do wonders. Still, drawing rain is hard. Convincing your viewer that a mess of water drops are falling from the clouds is more difficult than one would think. Charles Schulz drew good rainy days in his Peanuts strips. Just a bunch of vertical lines attacking the ground. I feel if I ever went at it that loosely, it would just look like I was drawing hair interrupting the scene.
