A week before the blank sketchbook arrived, my grandmother passed away. I did not have any solid plans for it so I just wrote and drew what was inside me at that time - sorrow, grief, nostalgia for my childhood with her, the abruptness of her passing, the shock I felt. Later I would look at the finished comic book and debate whether I should send it, or even show it to anyone, it felt too personal, like desperate coping. I never showed it to my mother. But in the end, my grandmother was the strongest brightest person in my life and she would want me to share my art with people. I hope it will find a reader and maybe help them reconcile with a loss better than I did.
