Cappuccino in Space


I drew this up for my talented GirlAMatic pal Tara Tallan, creator of the sci-fi comic series Galaxion. Tara's Galaxion holds a special place in my heart as my first introduction to independent comic making. Back in '95 I was routing around the local "Comic Dungeon" and chanced upon her mini comic prints and was instantly inspired. Before that I'd always thought comics were only made by the big fancy production studios, not by individuals with access to a photocopy machine! Right after that I started making a whole bunch of my own mini print comics; a couple fan comics, then a short lived series of my own called "Closet Boy"... because he could travel to alternate universes through closets... yup!

... and then I went to college and stopped drawing plot-driven stories and just dabbled in internet gag strips. Weird!

...oh! And I didn't draw the earth, I swiped that from google.
