Missing you, Mom, but also feeling grateful for the time we had.
For more about Mom, read my Savage Family Moments comics (or here’s an adorable picture of her). And if you’d like to join me in celebrating her life, you can toast her today with the drink that we always shared together: a cup of Earl Grey tea, black, with a shot of Drambuie on the side.
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. 🙂
