May 25, 2020: I had a dream I was showing my sketchbook to be critiqued by an animation professor, and was pleasantly surprised by the pages of comics that I had and I guess forgot I made. I dreamt of this open concept layout, shown below, which featured a pig-tailed girl, with more details and opaque colors that I have not been able to replicate in real life yet. Additionally, the words, the extra frog character, the subtleties et al. have been drawn by my sleep deprived- insomniac-brain, and quite possibly -- vodka from the night before. With comedic characters and a playful plot, I am bringing awareness of the many facets and difficulties of our personal and shared ways of gender expression.
