Desmond gets his call to action and so ends chapter 1 of the Desmond and Penny fairy tale.

I had a little break from the comic (2 whole weeks!), but it wasn’t a fun, leisurely break. My other professional life, while still in the realm of art, has gone in directions that I think most career-minded folks would be thrilled with–more responsibility, more power, higher title, etc–and I am good at it, but it doesn’t jive with my own aspirations. I would honestly be oh so happy to sit in a room and draw this all day so long as it paid the bills. Sounds like a goal for 2011!

My art is like therapy to everything else going on. So know that when I miss a week, it kills me. I look forward to making comics more than anything! Thanks for all your support. You’re the best!
