@kidcthulhu: I never feel rushed when it comes to comics haha :)

@Linn: I love high waist fashion, it's so elegant even if it's just a pair of trousers!
Thanks! I use watercolour paper by Canson, I only used normal paper for the first 20 or so pages of Le Vite and it sucks. Watercolour paper is a must for watercolours. That's so cool!
@kidcthulhu: I remember that, I was wondering what caused such seismic activity since that doesn't ever happen in the Netherlands XD
Oh! Wow!
I don't know what to say, I worry about how this is going to play out but I'm also sort of happy Sarah said something?

I really love the poses in this page and the speechbubbles layout reads really well. Nice to hear you enjoy art school and drawing again :) life drawing has always been one of my favourite things to do in art class.

I'll try to update more often than just once a month :)
Flora's character profile is available on the cast page now!

Good luck to all the students and kids with the new school year! It's only been two weeks for me but I already feel like summer break never happened.

I'm so frustrated with Miwako's face, something's definitely wrong but I couldn't figure out what so I just went with it. Sometimes I get one of those panels I just can't fix no matter how often I redraw them, this was one of them.
Next Friday is my birthday, yaaaay! I'll no longer be a teenager next week :)

@kidcthulhu: Colouring is the most fun part usually! The pages look very unfinished to me before I add the colours.

That's great to hear! As someone who had to learn other languages in school I never understood how native English speakers could make so many mistakes (like messing up they're, their and there??), but I surely mess up other parts so I can't really judge.

Only about 8 more pages in this chapter!
When I first wrote this chapter the dialogue seemed very stiff, no human (especially a teenager) talks like that! I changed it a bit and that's how Miwako's first speech bubble happened. I wish I had a more thorough understanding of the English language and its slang so I could use that when writing dialogue.
@skyangel: We'll find out soon hopefully :)
@skyangel: I hope so too! That's so nice to hear. There will be plenty of less normal looking characters later during the story, it's good to have variety in the characters I think.
@skyangel: Fenella will be the character to introduce the story, after the prologue we'll focus on other characters as well. I always enjoy LGBT comics, I hope my story will be interesting :)
@skyangel: Thanks! Traditional mediums make mood setting a lot easier but it can look messy.

@skyangel: There's actually one more chapter, chapter 5 is the current chapter :)
@kidcthulhu: Thanks! For both stories I think about several European countries for inspiration (especially France and the Czech Republic). Neither are set in a specific country, but I do think of them being set in the same country.
I thought it was about time I uploaded another page.
COWS! Drawing the landscape always reminds me of my grandparents' old farm. Fenella has arrived at school, you can't really tell from the upcoming pages either but her class has 9 students in total, it's a small town.
It's sort of funny, but mostly sad because it's true...
