How Life's Little Hiccups Began
The original idea for Hiccups dates back to the early 2000's. I had many ideas for the strip, exploring different characters and how they interact with each other.
My Inner Dialog
I often interject my views, opinions, and experiences into the comic strip. It’s an easy way to write a strip, but it’s a great way for me to express myself.
In 2017, I took part in a global drawing challenge, Inktober, to draw one ink drawing a day in October. It wasn't until I was presented with a challenge and deadline for Inktober that I found my footing with the strip.
A Shift in Character
Each year Jake Parker, the creator of Inktober, releases an official prompt list of words. Using the prompt list from 2017 I created two personas of my personality to explore new story ideas.
