The only comments I think I could make here are that sometimes shocking events can spark refelctive moments and we don't always like what we see, and a single good deed doesn't make anyone a good person any more than a single bad deed makes someone a bad person. I don't know if that crystalizes one way or the other, and maybe it shouldn't. An in-depth report on the real events that inspired this might be more confusing than clarifying because this is a mash of a lot of different things as well as a healthy amount of fiction, and we were all assholes some of the time.
Maybe the moral is never trust anyone who says you can trust them.
Truth be told, I'm not sad I never have to draw that fucking Nirvana poster ever again.
I mean, you don't want to miss the fight.
When you get far away from Those Days, it becomes murky which memories are good and which are bad. Sometimes the bad memories become good, sometimes the good turn heel on you and hit you with a chair.
@woodennature It's not so much autobiographical as it's inspired by real people and events, but the comic itself is fiction. Our Time in Eden is entirely fiction, though, not related to anything biographical. Thanks for the kind words!
This is just something I drew one day because I was having trouble getting started. Normally, I don't do warm-up art because I draw very slowly and it's time for a nap by the time I'm done, but now and then I hit a slump and need a jump.

Once again, these images were posted as bonus fun on our Patreon in the past few months. Stuff like this gets added all the time, along with our exclusive Pictures of You illustrations and advance comics, which are available to all our supporters. Plus, you support us making Pictures of You, and I'll love you for that.
What is this thing? I don't know, but it's a thing and it was fun to draw.

The pieces you're seeing this week were originally posted for our Patreons months ago as bonus art. There is also a couple years worth of exclusive art there as well, all of which is available to all of our Patrons, not to mention the next couple dozen pages of comics. Find us there:

Book Seven, Disintegration starts next week.
As The Romantic Junkies ends, sad to say there won't be any Snapshots guest comics this time around. I had a hard time coming up with any material that seemed appropriate and wouldn't interrupt the flow from the sixth book to the seventh. I did want a small break between the books, though, so I've decided to post some of the non-exclusive work I've been sharing with our Patreon supporters.

This first one is a piece I did for a possible cover image for Book Seven, Disintegration. I liked how it turned out, but I didn't feel it was right for the cover. Maybe a little too on the nose? The piece I ended up going with for DIsintegration's cover is, I think, much more appropriate.

If you can't wait to get into Book Seven, the first couple dozen pages are currently available on the Pictures of You Patreon to all supporters for as little as a dollar, with another batch uploaded at the start of each month. Higher support levels also receive exclusive physical prints, as well as not-so-exclusive images including this one, and even extra prose and script written by me. Plus, the support of our Patrons is what brought the comments section back, so thanks to them all for that. Check it out here:
Thanks again to everyone who grabbed a copy of Our Time in Eden Chapter Four! If you're someone who can't get enough of my work, I'll have a short piece with artist Rori in the upcoming book Femme Magnifique, curated by Shelly Bond and featuring a pretty insane array of comic talent. Even if you just want to check out the list, do it, I'm sickly proud of being included. Find it here, just a couple days left in their crowdfund:
I did write the book of love but I have no faith in god above.
Trying to find small talk with the loss of a friend hanging over you is like trying to spit water into a broken glass.
Some of us can't be nice, it's a terrible affliction.
It's whatever island you need it to be.
Wiley's parents are confirmed pricks.
Kara would have thrown a mug at Peter's head. A full one. I won't tell you full of what.
Is Peter a good friend or a schmuck?
I keep deleting all the commentary I come up with, talk amongst yourselves.
Hands up, everyone who might be a little drunk.
