I have always been obsessed with language. Words, reading, writing, speaking. When I was young, I would read every word I could see out the car window to try to learn new things.
I didn’t realize that I’m still like that until we went to Greece. I’ve studied foreign languages without traveling to those places, so I’d never immersed myself in brand new words and letters like that before. Just like I did when I was a kid, I would stare out the window and sound out every new word I saw.
I realized the other day that the other place that I’m having this same experience – one of learning new languages – is in trying to express myself via comics. In working on the webcomic and the comic script, I’m learning so much about another new alphabet.
