I drew this as a present for my aunt. I hope it’s not conceited to give a picture of my own character to someone as a gift. 

Sunflowers are a symbol of happiness and longevity.

Oh yeah, so I’m done with this comic now, aside from lettering, which will hopefully be done tonight. Just thought I’d share some bits since I’ve got it scanned now. I don’t know if I’ll upload the whole thing once it’s all done and together, or just select pages or panels or what. But here’s a panel from my first page.
