You can now buy this as a four page printed comic with bonus making-of images and a wrap-around cover.

See previews here [link] or buy it from my shop here [link]


My entry for the Guardian graphic short story competition.
It's basically a bunch of microstories documenting changes in people and personalities over time and the fickleness of first impressions.

Thank you everyone for all the great comments, I really appreciate it.

NOTE: If you share this around or post it somewhere else, please make sure you link back to this page or it's page on my blog, here [link] Thanks!

Such an amazing and powerful comic. This kind of stuff just isn't seen like it should be. Absolutely stunning work.

I was so intrigued by this that I made a little chart to see if the timeline of this would actually make sense, and it does! I'm even more impressed now.
This is the timeline I made:
man at beginning
40 years->grandpa and girl
30 years->girl and joanne, shy man and boyfriend
15 years<-racist father
25 years<-father is a child, girl and mom, crying man, father
25 years<-younger father

each part adds up to around 65-70 years of time.

This is so cool! It's true comics aren't art but this is so interesting and I'm glad I found it.

Comics aren't art? How?
smalltowngirly's avatar
I guess they are art. If u really think. I still love it though how it retraced back to the beginning. So talented!

Comics aren't art? In what way? They provide the same amount of expression as a single drawing and a novel.

I really love this comic about how people can change as they grow up. I also like how it flows really well and eventually ties the end back to the beginning. this really is a piece of meaningful and inspiring art. (the only thing is, what are the numbers between some of the panels throughout the comic?)

Pretty sure those are the page numbers, since this is now being sold as a short comic.
