chapter 1 page 45


aaaand that’s the end of chapter 1!

Regular pages will be on hold until April 1 so I can plan out the next chapter and hopefully set up a buffer. The site will still update on Wednesday and Sunday with guest art and comics by some really awesome folks!

Click here to start the next chapter right away, or keep reading on to check out a bunch of awesome guest art and a bonus comic!

chapter 1 page 44


Having friends you can goof around with and relax around makes just about any situation more bearable.

I’m a big flower-symbolism nerd, so I had fun with those middle panels! Hugo’s are daisies and cornflowers, and Louisa’s are geraniums.

chapter 1 page 42


Louisa and Hugo have dangerous, radical modern ideas, like “women are people with feelings” and “a girl and a boy can just be friends sometimes”

Happy Valentine’s Day! Enjoy this comic about two people who absolutely don’t want to date each other.

I liked doing the big detailed woodland backgrounds on the last page, but I figured I could allow myself a bit of a break on this page – other than that first panel. I think I’m gonna be seeing white-painted wooden planks in my dreams tonight.
