Here’s how my embroidery turned out!
Every year Hourly Comics Day takes place on the 1st of February! It’s a fun way to share a small slice of life. As some of you know, autobio is where my heart lies. On the actual day, I only had time to jot down quick stick figures in my sketchbook and then I went back later and re-drew everything all nicely just for this update. Matt and I pulled out all the bells and whistles on this one, it took us almost 2 weeks to draw and color! I hope you all liked this honest look at my February 1st.
I also wanna take this moment to recommend the graphic novel Marbles by Ellen Forney. I read it before I was diagnosed as Bipolar II myself, but wow, did it reach out and grab me by the heart with how much I could relate to it. Maybe a year or so after it came out, I received my own diagnosis and it was like “Ooohhhhh…. No wonder.” I dunno, guys. I’m still learning a lot about my disorder, still learning how to best manage it and take care of myself. It’s hard work and I’m so, so, so grateful for the support network I have who looks out for me and loves all of me, including the crazy bits.
