I drew this comic in 2009, a time when I was still concerned with depicting and satirizing "indie" culture. It has new relevance, however. Like the star-crossed band in this drawing, I am embarking on a voyage west. In a month, I'll be moving from Kansas City (near the city in the first panel), navigating I-70 (passing through the college town in the second panel), and setting up camp for two and a half years just outside Denver, Colorado (not far from the location of the third panel). So please understand if the comics I draw over the next couple months keep repeating this theme of transition, travel, and new beginnings. And the frustrations that inevitably follow.
So awesome! I'm in the middle of a move to Portland for a job. I'd never been before but I love what I've seen so far.ReplyDelete

If you cross Kansas at night, you can still play fun car games like how far apart are these two farm yard lights, really?ReplyDelete
Congratulations on your anthology publication and good luck on your new adventure!
As a Kansan, I congratulate you on escaping KC for the paradise of Denver. And as a bonus, you can now legally drive 75 mph from Topeka to the Colorado border!ReplyDelete
