Hey guys my second comic Train is now live!
...and by now I mean it went up like a week ago but am only just getting time to write a blog post about it.
First up if you haven't read Train yet, and you totally should plus it's only four pages long, you can read it here.
Secondly, a massive thanks to everyone who took time to give it a read and an even bigger thanks to everyone who said nice things about it! Given how much of myself I poured into this little comic it's really cathartic and humbling to see it connect and resonate with people.
As I have mentioned on this blog before I suffer from fairly bad depression and anxiety, and despite my best efforts with exercise, meditation and therapy, it continues to be something I struggle with on a daily basis. The result of this struggle is I spend a lot of time in my own head, thinking up worst case scenarios or reliving bad memories.
My point being that depression and anxiety can take you a lot of places. Mostly these places are dark and hopeless... but not always.
There are the places in between.
They are weird, whimsical spaces that dance between hope and hopelessness, dread and wonder, social anxiety and liberation. Despite all that depression and anxiety have taken away from me they have given me these places. Train is my attempt to share them with you.
