  1. Hi Cheryl! Love the way you’ve captured the uneasy/ easy sibling dynamic. Farokh and Alex work really well together and the drawings are just perfect for this issue.

    1. Thanks, Richard, I love the way people react differently, (and play a different side of themselves) depending on who they’re with. Alexand’s relationship with her brother brings out a different side of her, and I liked mixing it up amongst this longer storyline. Glad you like it.

  2. I’ve always loved Alex in her relationship with Katherine. But I really do like her as an older sister too. She is a truly gorgeous character — bet your mum would be delighted to know she was modelled after her. How is Katherine?

    1. Hi Vera, I love writing about Katherine and Alex a little too much for my own good if I was to admit this to myself. 🙂 As for Katherine, she features (in first person) in the next issue, so you’ll find out how she’s doing. I can’t wait to release it. It’s like a drug really… and my Mum, she really wouldn’t recognise herself. I suppose her kindness and humour are the best qualities that Alexand has inherited from her. (There are a lot of huge differences too, so Alex is very loosely based in part on my Mum, but there’s a lot of myself in there too, (some of the more fallible qualities, possibly… 🙂 )

  4. Subtly, your style is changing! There’s a softened message in these that was harsher and more direct in your earlier work. Its almost as if the emotional backcloth is altered. But still brilliant.

    1. Hi Veronica, and I love visiting your artwork. Do you have any more posts scheduled soon? My favourites so far are “Things That Go Bump In The Night,” and “Disconnect,” I’m glad you like these stories, and thank you, it means a lot that you take time to read and visit. All the best, Cheryl.

  5. Far out! Hey Cheryl, thanks for liking my post earlier. I must say, your wordpress is awesome. Not many wblogs can boast a longer list of character sketches then words. Pretty awesome. I’ll try following you. But in truth, I do not think you need readers to keep this one alive, your readers are just the cherry on top.

Keep it alive...
