No.5 – The Things We Do For Life (or at least A Living)

April 29, 2015

In which the cartoonist tries to obscure her dereliction of blogpost writing duty by outlining lots of other things she has been doing, and in the process revealing just how uncreative this creative life often has to be

Okay, I have proved myself to be much less reliable at blog posts than at Cartoon Topics of the Month. The year is one-quarter over, … more »
