I feel weird about this one, but life is too short to worry that much about what one is doing!
It was also pretty inevitable that I was going to bring Mona back in–I think I just needed to get away from her for a couple of strips? But it’s just like everything clicks well when this specific Friend Relationship is around, so like, why ditch it for the sake of Ideological Purity? Where you are is where you ought to be.
I’ve been going back and filling in the inks on some of the strips that have existed in pencils only for like, a year now (and which the members of the Abjuration Club have seen some months back), trying to reconnect to the larger story. It still feels weird, but I’m trying to at least keep drawing, staying sort of spontaneous, not taking things too seriously, trying to function, and I guess it is sort of working enough that comics are appearing, so!
