Leverage, illustrated


Near the end of 2015 I started work on some new short comic strips, illustrating some of the aspects of personal development, basically to find a new way of sharing some of the good stuff I’ve picked up over the year. “No one’s done a comic of this stuff” I thought, “it could be like  Scott McClouds Understanding Comics but more Understand Yourself“. Just these four pages took an age to do, but I’m proud of the results.
