After my wonderful trip from Japan (of which the massive update from the trip is still in my drafts), we had a not-so-wonderful project looming over all of our heads! After a couple of all-nighters and a lot of willpower, I finished my first ever original mini-comic! I hope you all like it, I worked really hard! I'm going to tone it and submit it to the SEQA travel anthology; I hope it gets in!
The comic is about two children in the Tokyo Museum: Aoki and Aiden. Aoki finds a hard time relating to her fellow students; she doesn't speak much, so she has trouble making friends. Aiden is an American boy that traveled with his mom for one of her business trips. He doesn't know anyone, but he is very outgoing and adventurous. However, because he can't actually speak any Japanese, he can't make any friends either. The two eventually run into each other and together, with the help from their toys, Mr. Claw and Saba-kun, they communicate and play with one another...without needing to say a word.
