I always felt like I had to choose. One or the other. So I gave up my art after years of thinking I was gonna be an artist. Started writing. Majored in vocal. I wanted to sing. Sort of. Then I decided I didn't. I wanted to write. So that's what I did and I abandoned my art as a serious pursuit, occasionally doodling or designing characters, but never fully recommitting until about three years ago. At that point I realized that I could do both, but then the question became: Would people think I am a writer who kinda sorta draws, or an artist who kinda sorta writes. I didn't want that. So I decided that I had to get better. And I did, I think. I hope that my writing matches my art in quality. I hope y'all truly enjoy this. This is not a revenge comic. This is not a sad story. This an homage to myself, my past relationship/s, and Black women, particularly single mothers, who make the mistake of settling because we don't realize that we are enough. Here I am, here I am, here I am.
