One year ago today I drew the last American Elf strip. I am still recovering.
Drawing American Elf for 14+ years was monumentally difficult. I understand that many readers hold it very dear… and I will say that drawing the strip often really was a beautiful experience. But it was also traumatic for me in some ways.
I feel like I came out the other end quite battered and bruised, but with a masterpiece I should be proud of. I say “should” because sometimes it’s hard.
Thanks for reading. And Happy New Year! Here’s to the future! Comics, comics, comics, and life!!!!
