“Outside my window”


For much of my life, my household moves have occurred in August, often tied to the start of school, then tied to the school-year lease schedules in Lawrence. I eventually broke that pattern, but can’t help but think about those moves at this time of year, seeing new students move into their dorm to start a new school year.

(… and I eventually even got a view out of my studio window, too!) 

“Outside my window” was one of the first one-page comics that I hand-colored to sell as a print. My prints now are colored and printed digitally, where I take full(ish) advantage of the vibrant color and texture that process allows me to get. They do lose the hand work of the earlier prints, of course, but I think it’s a fair trade-off.
