There is a love that sleeps inside
the canyons of our deepest dreaming lives.
A shelter, that cannot be lost...
A name that is so deep, and so far across.
I know you, yeah, do you know me?
Your life is like a bolt of lightning, seen
across the sky, so high and clean.

(Blitzen Trapper//Heaven and Earth)

Wow. I binge-read the whole thing from beginning to end and I'm awestruck! The whole thing feels so real and achingly beautiful. The surreal symbolism is thought-provoking and powerful, and you handled difficult subjects with grace and clarity. I got goosebumps a few times! This was an insta-sub for me, I'm looking forward to seeing more of your comics!

Yaaaay! Thank you Lutz. You tuned in at a great time, since this page pretty much wraps things up for Llama Tracks (for the time being - life has a way of adding more chapters). I got another project coming though, hope to see you around *U*

Hello Alejandra,

I was drawn to your comics because your a fellow Portlander. I’ve been really enjoying the layouts of your comics. Each of your pages are a true work of art and flows beautifully. It’s not just an interesting and deep story lines.

My comix are set horizontal boxes because I draw the three horizontal frames separately and then put them together to form the page, where you do the whole page. I admire that. I’ve subscribed.

Haha hey, howdy neighbor! :-D

Yeah, I started following a bunch of really artfully done webcomics 6-7 years ago that broke the traditional panel mold, so I started pushing myself to work with the whole page.

One thing I've been noticing lately, is that published graphic novels made with more traditional techniques (like real ink, and monotone watercolors for shading) tend to utilize a lot of open/negative space to tell their stories. Like, less is more. This intrigues me, too
