A diary comic written shortly after the death of Kazuki Takahashi
Experiments from March and April for a more streamlined way to make diary comics.
I’ve been working on some pieces under a different guise for a project based around a single character (and some yet to be designed supporting characters)
These paintings, illustrations etc can be found on Instagram over at @anaseed_art
At the end of last year, I had a little chat with fellow comics person Jack Hugh Baker.
I wanted to experiment with how to layout an interview transcript as a comic so I formatted it as if we were on a podcast.
This is also the first time I’ve tried to emulate classic comic style colouring using CMYK halftones, I enjoyed the limited colour palette, I think it’ll be something I try again in the future. Maybe in a more analogue form like risograph.

I’ve been using the printed version of Duzida to write short comics that add something to world.
Here’s the comic from issue 2 which takes place around a year before the issue 1 begins.
I’m working on one for issue 3 as I write this about the Metazurians reaching Earth for the first time. (If you don’t know what I’m talking about you can read Duzida here) They’re also a good excuse for me to experiment with layouts, which will be more apparent with the next one.
I’ve been sporadically making diary comics again.
Here’s a few from the last couple of months.
I feel funny about the internet.
It’s become something werid. Everything is in one of a handful of places.
Convenience is.. convenient. But it’s not necessarily a good thing. We need to start exploring again. But maybe we also need to just, step back a bit.
Why am I starting this blog? I’m not sure. I don’t want to commit to making a whole website. I also want something I can easliy update and I don’t want those updates to get lost in a barrge of other posts as everyone scrambles for attention on a timeline/dashboard/wall. I want a place to put my work that isn’t tied down to being just another account on social media because althought it’s done great things for art and helped to get artists work seen by an audience with ease, I feel social media has also ruined art in a way.
Maybe we can make this a trend?
