When I first started doing comics I used to have conversations with whoever would listen about my motivation being to tell ‘nowhere stories’. Autobiographical tales that don’t go anywhere or do anything other than preserve a memory. No climax. No resolution. No punchline. They start nowhere and end nowhere.
I suppose I wanted to draw nowhere stories because it was these that were my favourite comics to read. There’s a nice kind of intimacy about them. Anyway, this is a nowhere story that I’ve been wanting to draw for ages so I’m pleased I’ve finally had a chance to do it.
