Year One

Upon moving to Philadelphia, I challenged myself to draw one page of comics about every week that went by for my entire first year in a new city. I ended up drawing 2-3 pages a week, coming up with the 129 page book that I self-published in 2012. You can read this entire thing here or buy it here.

Week 1: 4/17/11 – 4/24/11 – Extreme Makeover: Home Edition

Page 3

Ramsey: “Okay, Rover. We’re here, bud. This is “home” now.”

Ramsey (thinking): “I wonder if it would be okay to start on my room…”

“I just have to jump into something or I’ll get totally freaked out about moving.”

Text from roommate: “Year, sure. Go for it!”

Ramsey (thinking): “This is going to make me feel so tough!”

“Hmm… that was easy. I guess you literally just rip it up.”

Drill, drill, drill.

Pry, pry, pry.

Ryan (new roommate): “Just wear this mask and do nice even passes.”

Ryan: “I just got stain and poly! This is so exciting. They look great.”

Ramsey: “I know! I can’t believe we did this in a week.”

Brush, brush. Paint, paint.
