I wasn't sure how it would go at first, but 3 issues in I'm totally committed to hand writing and drawing, plus some cut and paste - totally analogue production. I love working on a physical object, it's such a good change from using a computer at work all day :D

I do a comic, Dreams of Donuts, and it is completely hand drawn and hand written.  It takes forever!
