One Lone Tree

New Comics

I’d really love feedback on this one. This comic was inspired by a parking lot in Oregon with a couple of sad looking redwood trees corralled in little dusty dividers in a big parking lot by a strip mall. I thought about how these trees would never get to experience being part of a true forest, isolated from others of their kind by many miles of distance, and never drinking in the coastal mist. I decided I wanted to play with (almost) wordless narrative, since dialogue seemed a bit extraneous. I also wanted my drawings to really speak for themselves this time. I know the story is depressing, but it’s meant to make you think about the spaces we live in and that we subject other living beings to in an increasingly fragmented nature.
