I am really enjoying the fact that I can continue and make this webcomic. I have been wanting to make one for years and now with the help of Tyler I’m actually going for it and not just stopping after 3 or 4 pages like all of the other times I tried to start this comic. I really have to thank him for what he’s doing. He’s helping me achieve my dream, and I can actually pursue it.
To explain the obsession for Idril’s strawberries, her character is heavily based on me. Such as Vincent being based on Tyler. I have strawberry senses, proven every time Tyler and I enters a grocery store. I could be walking by a completely random isle, and suddenly I turn and notice there’s something like, strawberry pocky surrounded by rice. Completely out of place, but I was led to it. Idril is also a character I wrote up a long time ago, back when it was cool to be on myspace. Haha, it was my display back in the day, and I started to draw the character more and more often. She became my alter ego. She’s gone through many phases as a character, non story related phases. Like ones, she was part robot, and dating a computer. They hung out via the usb in her finger. Yeah, it was odd. But I like where she is now.
Destiny Fails Us will and does have events that relate to my life. My friend Rachael ate my food in high school every single day. So it made sense when Tyler came up with the idea to have someone steal my strawberry cake in Page 5 to put Alaska down there. It’s something she would do.
Anyway, thank you all for visiting my page. I truly appreciate it.
