Artist Asks, For Fun

Strange times abound. I've been occupied with juggling a script for a new graphic novel and my body's recent urge to sleep through everything. Still, the deadline moves ever closer... and the struggle to be a little productive during a crisis continues.

Ten Years Later

On March 31st, 2013, I published the first ever page of my webcomic, officially debuting The World in Deeper Inspection.


I was 18 then: fresh out of SPM, and at the start of my gap half-year. While my friends and schoolmates almost immediately transitioned into Pre-U Lyfe (A-Levels, IB, STPM, ADP - wow those names sound so irrelevant now) I was adamant about getting a few months off - not to travel since I didn't have the money then lol, but to work on my passion project: an artsy, ambitious magnum-opus webcomic about a Jersey Devil detective and his friends.

romance/other genre/fanfic writers will literally spend days researching a throwaway line detail that no one else will ever notice but Important Literary Men google 'red dye recipe' and then use one from Zelda because it’s the first result, but sure it’s genre folks writing trash https://twitter.com/ithayla/status/1290349041805438984

romance novelists, btw, will read hundreds of pages of primary documents to find the price of a pound of sugar in 1873, a detail which is mentioned once and never used again.
