“The council assembles”

Boy, things have sure changed since I last wrote one of these blurbs! Hope you are all staying safe & adapting to the new new as best you can. Even though my day-to-day life as a cartoonist in the studio should be pretty much the same as before, the mood of the times is weighing on me (like with most of us), leaving me feeling scatterbrained & overwhelmed. Having my spring shows & upcoming release schedules thrown out the window hasn’t helped matters. Neither has the nagging question of how much this fanciful comic adventure really even matters in times like this. I can only hope it brightens your day in some way…
