I sometimes wake up in the middle of the night and check if my fiance is still breathing.

I’m still reading the same books, so nothing new to report on that front but… I started writing the new one! It will be my fourth draft since I decided to seriously pursue writing back in 2020. And hell, it’s been tiring and frustrating at times but I feel like I’ve learned so much and wrote stories that I’m actually really proud of. I’m sure there will be more coming, even if no publishing house decides to buy them. I’m super excited about this next book and I’ll be going back to writing as soon as I post this comic page haha
I’ve been also trying to sketch more (“trying” is the keyword here) and realized that I’ve subconsciously banned myself from using physical mediums to draw. It’s crazy. Somehow, I managed to convince myself that since I do most of my art digitally, I shouldn’t use any pencils or markers or paints, because then the practice gets “wasted” in a way. I should be exercising my digital muscle instead! And so I didn’t sketch at all, because I don’t really like digital sketches visually. I tried a couple times, sketching Replay in different style, but it was never really all that fun. And then I bought a bunch of pens and decided that it’s both difficult and kind of fun. Now I’m looking at watercolors, hoping to mix the two and maybe pick up some urban sketching. Tokyo is beautiful! I love its little streets and houses! I know – there’s never enough time to do everything, but I’m hoping to get more into traditional drawing this year. And if you also have something you’ve been putting off for silly reasons… well, there’s no time like the present.
See you guys next week and thank you for reading Replay! 🙂
