What is, StarDrop?

Stardrop is a light-hearted science fiction webcomic series about a space princess hiding in a small town. “Anne of Green Gables from Space.”

“Ashelle is delightful! I want to adopt her!”

“I just love her! She's such a breath of fresh air!”

“This webcomic is subversive and self-aware.”

Stardrop offers a positive message. That's rare and it's important!”

From the Drawing Board

Monday, Oct 15th, 2018

Drifting through flu season with a stuffed nose, right after finishing a liquid-only fast for a few days. I'm in a weird place, sort of feverish and sort of miserable and sort of cozy, because I fired up the woodstove and have been sipping on hot drinks made from spices.

And worrying about what the next Stardrop was going to be! Like actually beginning to really worry. -I usually have a script idea brewing for a week or more in advance, but this time I was drawing a blank. Low energy and dazed and without an idea is not a good place to be on an early Monday morning, hours before I need to start drawing!

But then I found myself lying awake because sleep was impossible due to throat tickle, just moving through the puzzle of Jenny and her son. And then, like those times when you accidentally solve a Rubic's Cube, (-it happened to a friend of mine once!), the whole thing just drifted together into one clicked whole. It took work and energy, sure, but not the fighting kind.

It was still a complicated set of ideas which I thought was going to take two or more strips to tie down, but I tell ya, I got it all in one so that the script tumbles along nice and bright! (Less is more. Less is more!).

Plus, I'm really proud of my characters!

Have a nice Monday, everybody!
