You know what helps you get better at something? Doing it a bunch. I was inspired by Elle Skinner's biographical comix (http://elle.mysky.net) and, of course, DAR and American Elf and... but Elle Skinner was the final straw. So i'mma do two strips a week about stuff that happens to me. It's like push-ups for your pacing and composition muscles. I'm aiming to spend about 30 min. on each strip, so enjoy the art. Also, to avoid inappropriately personal content, each strip will be based on a haiku. If you can make a haiku out of it, it's not inappropriate.
Plaintive cries- I was socializing kittens. My cat pooped in the sink.
