Cow in the parking lot

This comic was inspired by the book The Cow In The Parking Lot: A Zen Approach to Overcoming Anger by Leonard Scheff & Susan Edmiston.

I can honestly say that this book changed my perspective in handling my own emotions. I find myself thinking more about the consequences and following the logical approach in overcoming events that make me angry. I’m still learning but compared to how I was in the past, I feel a bit more content in approaching matters with a zen mindset.

How do you cope with events that make you angry? Would love to hear your thoughts 💭

Namaste,

Can Monday Be Over?

Not to sound like a brat, but I really did enjoy my weekend of solitude. Still not over it 😭 Managed to create some more comics, while catching up on some shows via Netflix. Weather is getting colder, which is perfect. Can’t wait to indulge in more heartier soups, especially.

How did you spend your weekend?

Namaste,

An Introverted Weekend

No partying for me. Just peace and quiet, until the new weekend starts 😴

Being an introvert has its ups and downs. I remember feeling antsy and moody whenever I go to events. It takes a lot of effort for me to get out of the house and do something “social.” I really try my hardest, promise! But the siren song of books, Netflix and take out food lures me back inside my cave 😂

Some people assume that I’m too quiet for my own good. In reality, I’m pretty selective and also mindful on what I say and do. It’s the reason why I create these comics – to channel out my feelings and emotions. Some things are hard to convey verbally. But I can do so with this medium.

How do you spend your weekends? Would love to hear your thoughts.

Namaste,

How are you feeling?

Us humans have an interesting way in displaying our emotions. There’s no black and white definition as to how one should feel. It always helps to talk to someone if you’re not sure how to cope. Reach out to someone – be it a trusted friend, family member, counsellor, mentor, etc.

Don’t keep your emotions bottled up. Let your voice be heard. I’m rooting for you.

Namaste,

Weekend, Next

How I feel at the beginning of the week versus how I feel at the end.

Work has been pretty busy on my end, but I’m grateful for the help. Still, it makes me smile to see folks liking my comics and sharing them.

What are your weekend plans? Also, how do you cope when dealing with a fast-paced week?

Would love to hear your thoughts 🐮

Namaste,

A Promise To Myself

In an effort to avoid sounding preachy or drawn out, I wanted to offer some simple advice for those who are interested in posting their webcomics to the public.

You’ll have moments where others won’t recognise your talent. You’ll also have some harsh critics who think your artwork sucks. Heck, you may find yourself wanting to stop all together if you don’t have enough social or financial currency.

My advice? Put your passion first. The rest will come later. Better yet, don’t think about seeking fame or fortune. Create your comics based on how you feel and what messages you want to share with your audience.

When I started my comics, my hope was to spread joy, humour and bits of wisdom through this art form with cows. Sure, I do have a donation page and art print store set up. But, I don’t make it as much of an emphasis. Why? Because I feel content in my journey. My artwork is a reflection of myself. If folks want to chip in, great. Same goes with sharing. But at the end of the day, I’m happy in sharing a piece of my soul to the world.

I do hope the above wasn’t too drawn out 😆

Namaste,

Daylight Savings Ends

If there’s one thing I hate, it’s forgetting to set the clocks an hour back. Not to mention the endless unfinished tasks.

Comic Draw has been a lifesaver when it comes to creating the panels and the text bubbles within the app. Started to find my groove with the app in terms of font styles and keeping a consistent color palette, so yay 😁

Namaste,
