I made two (somewhat grim) pancake comics on the same piece of paper, the next one is coming up soon. But all the doodles are mixed together so it takes a while to cut them up digitally and put them back together in a way that makes sense. I’ll post the original drawing in the next post, so you can see what I mean.
Until then – you can check out my other comics here:
I tried a bit of a new style in this doodle leaving in some background colour that shows up in a random pattern from the light hitting the paper when I take a photo with my crappy phone camera (that still works) and uses the function ‘image trace’ to clean up the comic in Adobe Illustrator.
I think I like the bit of colour for times when I can’t be bothered to fully colour in the comic.
The thing is, I get hungry. Sometimes from one minute to the next. And I happen to live with a Slow Eater. We try not to food shame (or generally shame) each other, because that’s obviously not nice or healthy.
It’s just that… We’re both a bit surprised every time I manage to spray burrito filling all over myself and the furniture in a very short time, while Slow Eater hasn’t spilled a single crumb.
I guess burritos are difficult to eat for some people. And when I start making a mess, I feel like I might as well just continue down that road.
Fun facts about this comic:
#1: We don’t actually sit shoulder to shoulder and eat dinner like that. We obviously lounge at either end of the couch while watching YouTube, like proper grown-ups.
#2: Slow Eater doesn’t actually own a nice, red, woolly sweater, but I asked which colour he wanted to wear in the comic and he requested this – and now wants to get one IRL.
#3: Last month I drew another comic of me and my BF – you can check it out here: Duvet drama.
