It’s a little rough due to lack of Photoshop, and the fact that I had to put it up when given the chance, because June will be totally gone before we know it.
Sketched this in five minutes, took a photo with my phone, and uploaded it. Because…you can probably guess.
The theme for this comic is taken from one of the papers my class wrote for Mayterm. I wish my professor had let me defend my thesis in comics instead. That would have been much more fun–for both of us, I’m sure. On the other hand, this comic gave me so much trouble, it probably would have been just as much work as the paper.
Fun but useless fact: the top three panels are all based on portraits of Queen Victoria.
I contracted senioritis in my junior year of college, so by the time I was actually getting ready to graduate, it was at a pretty advanced stage. Writing papers was like pulling teeth, and writing my senior capstone paper was the worst. I didn’t even have a thesis until about two weeks before the first draft was due, and most of it was written over my week-long Easter break. My topic was “English domestic civilian propaganda posters during the Second World War” (your line: “Wow. That’s specific.”). By the end of the semester I was having nightmares about the Blitz and Nazis, and was very ready to be done with the whole thing. It was a relief to finally turn the first draft in, even if it wasn’t all over quite yet.
And of course, this all coincided with the outbreak of the “Keep Calm and Carry On” spin-offs.
