Embarrassing Older Work, Part Two (concluded)
Here is the last of my showable work from ten years ago. This was the year 2000 in San Francisco, at the end of the of the “dot com boom.” There was also a “housing bubble”, and a lot of people I knew were getting evicted or priced out. As I had no interest in computers and lived in a rent-stabilized apartment, I was mostly unaffected by these things, and so had a lot of time to draw comics about all the incidental details of my life.
Oh, and comics were not the respected literary-artform then that they are now. So when people asked me what I meant to do with my life, this didn’t count. These comics were a secret I was both ashamed and proud of, which is pretty much how I feel about them still.
Next week I’ll be returning to my regular semi-real-time-semi-autobiographical-comics.
