Palm Trees by Pedantia Palm Trees by Pedantia
A piece I did for this year's Southern California Review, which I'm now allowed to post online.

I'm developing an idea for a graphic novel in this style.

When I was a kid, I always vacationed in Florida, I and took palm trees as a "Yes" to my "Are we there yet?" This is a nice comic, but it's also really deep emotionally speaking. I love it.

Heh. It's funny. I come from the Midwest and also associated Palm trees with vacations. But as we only ever went to California to visit my dad's family, I wouldn't say they're pleasant associations. ^^;

It's a neat piece of history, except for the part about crashing. (Glad you weren't hurt.) Still, nice insight into the kind of thoughts we all have when there doesn't seem to be much else to hold onto. Those are interesting (and revealing?) choices for character designs of you and your sister. It looks great too, of course, and I think I can feel the moods throughout.

I couldn't sleep on my left side for a year. I think I cracked some ribs.

It's fun when insight is just saying what happened. Maybe that's the key.

Definitely intriguing. It sounds like I would like Seattle. My kind of place.

Based on the fact that we have lousy weather and lots of coffee?

(It actually is a really nice place. Very pretty and the summer weather is wonderful.)

Those are in fact two of my favorite things.

I grew up in Australia, I've had my fill sunshine and hot summers.
Oh, and there's the whole extremely addicted to coffee thing, so yeah, my kind of town I guess.
