How Webcomics Save Your Soul

By August 17, 2014 29 Comments

It was always my intention for SORROWBACON to be surreal.

Not surrealism in the conventional sense, but surrealism as a subversion of your normal self, whatever and however you define that ‘normal’ benchmark.

For me, it’s about tackling the things I didn’t know I had to overcome.

As I draw more SORROWBACON comics, I’m learning more about myself, specifically what I find funny, or sad, or both.

Webcomics make their creators braver.

They allow you to say things you normally wouldn’t say, and somehow it’s easier to find your voice when you’re talking through a cat, a badger, or a sentient custard.
