Monday 8:27am
I woke up with you on my mind.
You called me babe last night —
my heart is still pounding.

Tuesday 10:53pm
Today I realized we won’t work.
What we are is hurting her.
And I think she matters more to me than you do.

Wednesday 11:52pm
I broke things off with you today.
She barely said a word.
I’ve never regretted anything more than this.

Thursday 4:03pm
I shouldn’t have sent that message.
You shouldn’t have been so okay with receiving it.

Friday 9:57pm
I almost messaged you today.
I didn’t.

Saturday 8:49pm
I’m walking around town in search of alcohol.
They say that liquor numbs the pain of having a broken heart.
I want to put that to the test.

Sunday 2:32am
I heard you texted a girl you’ve never spoken to before.
I wonder if it’s because you’re trying to replace me.
I can’t help but wish you weren’t.
I thought I was irreplaceable.

SO I said I was gonna post something before new years but I didn’t have time to get anything new done, so here’s a couple of character designs from the comic I’m currently working on that I did earlier this year. I’m not sure what her name is, but you may notice some resemblance between her and the protagonist, Lucille (the lady with the eyepatch).

Big new years resolution for me is to actually start, develop and finish more than one personal project this year. I tend to talk myself out of a lot of things (story ideas, designs etc) wayyy before they ever reach the outside world so I feel like I probably waste a lot of effort. Looking back on my computer at all the stuff I’ve drawn this year I feel a bit ashamed that so much of it is probably just gonna reside on there forever - in 2017 I’m definitely going to see some things through to completion.

I still like these designs but I think they’re maybe a bit too precise. I’ve been drawing with a more wobbly freehand line lately - which is slightly more relaxing and also means I can produce work faster. It’s a balance I have to find.

Anyway - if you’re reading this you made it through 2016 in one way or another, so well done. Here’s to 2017 being better. x
