Autobiographical cartoons


"Avery Well Drawn Life" originally started out being called "Blue Eyes" - and was obviously based on Sam and our little blue-eyed baby, Avery. It seems like she's going to keep her blue eyes (rather than have them turn green or brown, that is). While this strip is inspired by her, it won't always be about her. The first 16 strips have mostly been about finding the style I was most comfortable with (shapes of eyes, hair styles, font types - that sort of thing). Sam has helped enormously in fine-tuning my writing and even coming up with lots of ideas in the early stages, though this has dropped off as she's found more demanding things to do actually looking after Avery, and tidying up after me!
