Introducing my so-bad-it's-good comic strip
Due to popular demand, I have posted one of my comic strips. This one was actually published. Sort of. It ran in the English Bay Swim Club's newsletter, which has a readership of about 20 people. Mostly my friends.
Anyway, the swim club hasn't put out a newsletter in about two years due to general apathy, so I have been toiling in even greater obscurity since then.
I've been trying to convince the communications director at work to run my comic strip in the office newsletter. I even brought in my portfolio. He laughed at me. And then laughed at my artistic ability, which peaked in Grade 5. I guess that means no.
I also used to write articles for the swim team newsletter, until the editor got tired of me handing in 2,000-word articles that had nothing to do with swimming.
This comic strip ran with a story I wrote about Provincials, which you can read here (the comic strip will make sense after you've read the story).
