It's Tuesday Just barely still Tuesday But I said I'd write. I actually started hours ago, you know how that goes But I said I'd write. Of course I also said I'd get more sleep. . . But I said I'd write.
Well, it made me a little late… but I was once again inspired by Beth Moore‘s comic slices… and since I just came back from TCRWP’s Graphic Novel Institute, I had to take that inspiration and give it a try.
Hareem Atif Khan, one of the amazing teachers at the institute said this wonderful thing about me, that nobody has ever said before… that I make my own process visible as a public learner, that I take risks.
I don’t know if her compliments are true, but I’m going to try to make them true. (Thanks, Austin Kleon for these words!)
So, I’m making my first comic slice visible.
Listen, it’s not great. It’s not really even good! But, it’s ok. My desk is full of eraser clumps. My hands have pencil rubbings all over them. There are a million things I’d revise if it weren’t 12:37 a.m.
One day, maybe I’ll post a comic without a preface. Today is not that day. The first steps out of your comfort zone are weird, right?
Here’s my first Comic Slice: Mommy Starts School.
