This one is quite self-explanatory, if you can follow it, that is. I was home alone, got bored, started drinking, got the inspiration to draw drunken comics. The logic of an intoxicated person is a bit odd, indeed. Like the thing about varnish and smearing it on the kitchen counter: I didn't draw any pictures about it, but a picture of me standing in front of the fridge instead. I have no clue, why it went like that.
My aim was to draw as fast as possible in order to keep up with my mood. It didn't go as well as hoped, but it was fun anyway. The last page proved problematic: you shouldn't really draw anything that covers the whole page for a web comic. Now my sorry caricature of James Hetfield can't be seen in its entirety. I guess it's called learning by doing.
Oh, one thing. The little devils. They've been kind of my trademark for the last ten years or so. I wanted to paint a decorative board high up on my apartment walls with these joyful but nasty little demons. I never did that but they've appeared in my comics since then (most of those comics are still in my drawer, others can be found from the archives of the student organization at the Åbo Akademi business school). Normally they stand in the background, giving sarcastic comments or are just shown having a good time whenever someone else is miserable.
