    Daily diary comics

    On January 1, 2019, I decided to make a diary comic every day for a whole year.

    The structure remained consistent every day: four panels drawn in black-and-white, illustrating the events that transpired the day before.

    Once I finished a full year of diary comics, I continued the practice for another year. And then another.

    It was a transformative three years. I created comics that covered a vast variety of subject matters: getting my masters degree from the Center for Cartoon Studies, self-publishing two issues of Fantology, working in the service industry during the pandemic, falling in love, and mourning the loss of two friends.

    Eventually, I gave up the daily practice and moved to making autobiographical comics whenever I felt like it, this time with color.
