Admittedly this is a return to an illustration I did before for depcom, but with a positive spin. This is something I’ve been feeling myself for a while, as slowly I’m getting back into things I used to enjoy but kind of lost for a long time. I feel like I’m starting to see some things in me that I thought I had forgotten, like my sense of humor and enjoyment of drawing comics. I want to try to put more positive messages into the comic but I have to temper them so that they don’t sound like a greeting card.
I added some splashes of color in there to ensure that it didn’t look like a mirror, and to emphasize the depressive greyness of the comic in general, and maybe suggest that the comic isn’t a black and white comic, but a color comic whose depression makes it grey.
