In honor of Arbor Day, I thought I’d share some samples of a comic strip I used to do, called “Tree.” When I first I started working on this strip in 2005, a friend of mine suggested I join his writers group to help me hone the writing and the characters. I took him on his offer and went to their next meeting. I was a member of the group for nearly a year and a half and the feedback I got from everyone was invaluable. It was a lot of fun. I also learned that I am very bad at critiquing poetry.
I submitted “Tree” to syndicates in 2007 and they all passed on it. I really enjoyed drawing this strip. Hope you enjoy the samples.
Since it’s Arbor Day, go out there and hug a tree. Or give one a high five. Some trees don’t like to be hugged.
