One of the most challenging things about being a cartoonist is making jokes when you don’t feel like it. But even when times are tough, I keep making comics, because that’s what I do… and I do find that humour helps me get through the tough times. And this summer, there have been some of the toughest of times.
You got to know my mother a bit through my recent Savage Family Moments comics – and those comics exist because I was making more regular visits to see her. Now that my family is getting together for a “Celebration of Life” party for Mom, I feel ready to make some comics about her life and our times together. I hope you like them. And I’ll still make a few jokes along the way, of course. 🙂
And that’s it for my special week of Savage Family Moments. Heading back to Vancouver tomorrow! Thank you all for the wonderful feedback on these comics, and thanks to my family for a wonderful visit! 🙂
And that’s the end of my week of on-the-road comics featuring my family. Tomorrow, I fly back to Vancouver! I had a great visit here and it was especially nice to spend so much time visiting with my mom. Love you, Mom! xox
(Today’s comic is photographed inside Mom’s fridge. Her new one, not the old dangerous one!)
