This is the first time I've drawn anything in almost a month! I was just itching to draw something, so I tried sitting at my computer desk to see if I could do it. It's not easy for me to maintain this position, and I definitely don't think I'm ready to get back to full pages, but I'm so freaking happy to be able to do something. This right here? This is progress!

Anyway, there have been a lot of things on my mind that I could've drawn, but of course, if I'm going to test the waters, it's going to be with Rain. I know it's not much, but it's something, so I hope you like it. And maybe it means we'll see more in the near future.

I am so glad that you are doing better, even if slightly! It must make you feel so good to have finished this set of your journey and have come out on top! I just want you to know that this comic has been very comforting to me in the last few months. Reading it and reading your blurbs at the bottom really make me feel less alone in regards to who I am as an individual. I wish you the very best in life! Until next time!

It's good to see Rain's face again, but even better to see that you're doing well. I'm just so happy that you've come so far on your journey. Congratulations and keep improving.

Speaking of problems sitting to draw...


I was told this story years ago by someone in the film industry:

Brian Narelle (Lieutenant Doolittle in the brilliant super-low-budget SF parody "Dark Star" somewhere around $35,000 to 50,000 in 1974 - http://electronictiger.net/reviews/darkstar.htm) was an animator (the film began as a student film by John (Halloween) Carpenter and Dan (Blue Thunder) O'Bannon, using fellow film students.

He worked for some time in the art department at a major ad agency. He hated working at a drawing board, because his back bothered him after working for hours sitting there.

So he got a parachute harness and some bungee cord and put a hook in the ceiling, where he could basically suspend himself standing in front of the board and work in comfort. (He had some weight on his feet, enough that he could move around the office.)

Another thing that bothered him was that, when potential clients were being given tours of the agency offices, the comments by their guides as they passed his office were along the lines of "...please do not feed or annoy the crazy animator..."

So, the next time a tour was coming, he stretched the bungee cord until he had pulled himself all the way to one side of the office. And just as the visitors cautiously peeked in, he made a tremendous cartoon-style LEAP all the way across the office to a supplies cabinet, grabbed something, made another LEAP to his drawing board and began drawing furiously...
