01 Jan 0… the end?
So we’re down to zero today, and we’ve reached the end of our story. For those of you who have been following these drawings since it started at #30, you might be wondering what was the point of this story. Actually, it began with the end in mind. The story itself doesn’t necessarily represent anything, it was more of a means to an end. At the beginning of the month, I wanted to do a series of drawings for every day of the month leading to today, but couldn’t think of anything to lead up to it. #30 was sort of a random idea that was in my head that evening, and even then I didn’t know how it was going to get to the end. I kinda had to figure out on the fly how the story was going to finish. About halfway through, I finally had to sit down and plan out the rest of the drawings to make sure I had enough days to finish it. I had always wanted to draw this picture for a long time, but the timing was never right.
Or , if you want to go in a more roundabout way, you could say I was too chicken to draw it.
