Anywhere But Here

This is my first comic! After taking a couple of drawing classes on skillshare, I decided to give this course a go. 

When I heard the theme, I immediately thought of my constant obsession with being anywhere except for where I am. I've been in mental health treatment for the past 4 months, and this is a very simplified representation of how that obsession has felt, before and during. It seemed easiest to make a memoir comic since life has been rather insular lately. In the future, I'd like to branch out and create new characters and worlds.

I don't yet have the software or skills to do this on the computer, so I used felt tip pen and watercolor. I don't feel like I've found my style yet, but I'm glad to have gotten one comic down on paper!

Thank you for the direction and encouragement. I really enjoyed this course.
