Round One: Day Twenty One



I feel so lucky to live here, right near the bush, overlooking the valley. There’s a particular route I take when I’m walking the dogs just before sunset. It goes right through the bush, a little path underneath the canopy of trees. I never see a soul. I catch sight of the black cockatoos every so often but they never cease to take my breath away. They don’t fly away but sit very still and watch as I walk by. Sometimes I almost walk right past without noticing, but the sheer weight of the birds makes the smaller branches creak under the strain.

You know what? I feel rehabilitated! A month ago the prospect of putting pen to paper was so daunting I’d break out into a sweat just thinking about it. Today I drew *four* four-panel comics for today’s post as I couldn’t quite decide on which one to do. I mean, really!

I’m setting myself a challenge for my next comic – the last comic. I’m going to try and work out a good, simple way to draw the view over the valley. I think that’d be a really nice way to end it.
