Butch and Risotto

Class is done, and my first comic strip is done! I am glad to have finally made a real start, four plus years since my original idea. Having a structured class helped turn my ideas into reality, with noted help from my teacher Rachel Lindsay (rachellivesherenow.com).

Meet Butch and Risotto – a potato and tomato duo dealing with life after brain injury, together. This comic strip is another way for me to share with the greater world what it is like to struggle and recover from a brain injury. My intent is to focus on incidents in daily life that are frustrating, confusing, and even funny sometimes. This is just life, after all, with some extra challenges and lessons.

One thing I learned in my graphic novel class is creating finished comics is a lot of work. A lot! Hours and hours! I assume it gets faster and easier with time, but it is still a time-intensive activity. So. That means you won’t be seeing one of these every week… or every month. I’m hoping to complete one every two or three months. It’s a nice break from the computer screen. We’ll see how it goes, but no promises. Part of it will depend on the world’s response – so please share it, if you like it. Get the word out that it exists.

Without further ado, here is my first completed Butch and Risotto comic. Enjoy!

    Great job! Can’t wait for for the next one.
    I’ll share with my neurologist psychologist as well, and she will no doubt be happy to share as well?
    I’m mTBI as well.
