Diwali was a few days ago (Saturday 10/17 to be exact) so this is a little late, but we did a comic about the Japanese New Year a little while ago and I figured this could be a similar sort of thing! Sorry that it's a wall of text - these things happen sometimes. Diwali actually gets celebrated over the course of several days in India, and it's loud and festive and a lot of fun. And the food! That's my favorite part.
Read the alt text, hahahaha. Oh Yuko.
Our word game escalated ... Yuko and I both grew up devouring anything we could read about prehistory, so our vocabularies on that point are pretty good (although Yuko is the undisputed champ). Here's a breakdown of the animals we're actually referring to, for your convenience (from beginning to end):
Two of my favorite people in the world, Kyle and Jenn, got married in South Carolina a few years back, back around the time Yuko and I started dating ... so this chronicles something a little older. It's weird because I filled out the forms digitally in MD -- so someone mispelled a printed name. Go figure! I can say this: Yuko has gotten plenty of mileage out of it.
Yuko wore a skirt the first day of SPX, which as we have previously established is mighty unusual! It was mega cute, though - despite all of the exclamations, she got plenty of compliments. And despite that huge grin she drew me with in the first panel, it wasn't my idea for her to wear it! Totally self-motivated. She also got a new haircut which she decided she hates but really it is pretty cute.
Haaahahaha, ohhh Mika. You adorable little cat jerk!
Yuko and I will be wandering around SPX this weekend, saying hi to folks. We'll be there with George, most likely.
Oh, we got mentioned in the comics section on Reddit! Thank you to whoever reddited that.
Hey guys! We're a little later than we expected, but Yuko's been working into the AM to get this thing done, so here it is. Please give her a thank you! She's been working literally all day. Hope you enjoyed this little short! We'll be doing more, but we'll be planning them out more carefully in the future.
Yuko and I have been talking, and chances are this isn't the last you've seen of Cecilia and Death ... we'll probably see them again from time to time.
I, uh, also came up with some alternate takes on this story,
Hey guys! We were traveling on a bus all day, and as mentioned before these Cecilia comics take an inordinate amount of time (about 5x longer than a normal JW page) - the last page will be up Wednesday! After that we're going to figure out how to schedule these shorts a little better. ;) The lateness won't be a regular occurrence ... consider them growing pains. Thank you for your patience! Yuko is penciling away as I type, rest assured.
Sorry for the delay! Here's page 3 ... I love Cecilia's dress in the middle there, so cute. Death is lookin' sharp too. Yuko, you're blowing my mind with these pages! The last installment will be out next Tuesday, and then we'll talk a little more about Cecilia as a whole.
Hey guys and gals! Just a heads up, Thursday's comic is delayed till Friday! These color comics take an inordinate amount of time, and Yuko's got to illustrate and color them between her client work, a huge chunk of which arrived this week. We'll talk about that some time, it's neat!
It's worth mentioning, I'm working on edits to a manuscript for a graphic novel! Not sure when it's coming out, but news on that as I'm allowed to say more! It's going to be illustrated by Yuko, though. As you can tell, we keep busy. :)
Anyway, sorry again! See you tomorrow!!
