This Comic is Backwards, But I'm Posting it Anyway

Oh this poor comic! I got about halfway though it before I realized I had it all backwards. What seems to work better is that FIRST you bleed your heart out onto a page (or whatever medium you're working in) and THEN you use your brain to clean everything up and make it legible. 

Still I think the sentiment is right. It's not always like this. Sometimes making stuff is a joy from start to finish. But other times the worry creeps in.

Ahh! The dagger did have a purpose! Now, that's how you storytell! "If you say in the first chapter that there is a rifle hanging on the wall, in the second or third chapter it absolutely must go off. If it's not going to be fired, it shouldn't be hanging there." — Anton Chekhov

Also, I need to send you an unfinished/in progress poem that relates tangentially to this comic. I think you'd enjoy it.

I feel this way with everything I draw. Only difference is nobody ever sees it so I don't have anyone say its great. oh well, I'm still drawing anyways.
