I had an ill-fated romance in India a few years back. I was on a plane to Mumbai to pick up my girlfriend, who had decided to travel the world with me, despite her parent’s protests that she was seeing a foreigner.
It was a long flight, and I was nervous, excited, and scared. So I decided to draw a comic just to pass the time. I gave myself a completely random jumping off point: to make a werewolf comic without a werewolf in it.
But with all that was on my mind, the comic subconsciously became about a relationship, with lycanthropy basically being a metaphor for cultural differences, and the characters came to represent where I was in my relationship.
Though the girl dumped me shortly after I got off the plane, the comic stuck with me.
