The Daily Comic Lives Again!

A while ago, I worked on a daily comic. Every day I'd draw a three panel comic that showed highlights of my day. Eventually, I gave it up because it wasn't fun anymore. Life is too short to have hobbies that don't fulfill you. Well, a few months ago, someone who was featured heavily in the comic asked if they were available to read. I never did scan them, so I started to look into what it would take to publish them. (I'm still looking into it.) Then something happened that I didn't expect: I missed drawing my daily comic.

Connor wasn't in the old comic, so I thought it was high time to draw one where he was featured. I hadn't drawn much since the old comic ended, so starting up again, I was surprised to see that I was able to pick it up pretty easily. I also feel like my story pacing is far better than it used to be. That being said, it still is difficult to be disciplined about drawing the comic each night before going to bed. I still have memories of the comic becoming much less consistent when I would put off drawing for a day. One day typically became a week, became a month, until the comic finally died.

I have stuck to it for two weeks now. I don't know how long I'll draw it, but for now it is fun.

Is anyone else experiencing renewed interest in an old hobby?
