Reaper is what convinced me to un-quit art, back in the day, so not only is this the 10-year anniversary of Reaper Fan Comics, but the 10-year anniversary of me becoming an artist again, as well.
Yep, I had once quit art, despite the fact that I'd grown up wanting to do nothing but comics from a very young age. (High school had killed my love of drawing, and I found myself focusing on other aspirations. Stopped working on art entirely once I was in college.) When Reaper premiered, I adored it instantly; the humor just clicked with me. Eventually felt compelled to make a silly comic to explain away a plot hole. Figured it would be a one-and-done thing, and that I would go back to not drawing as soon as it was out of my system. But I had so much fun with it that I decided to make more, and I ended up creating a full-blown webcomic instead.
Because today is so monumental for me, I thought I'd celebrate by re-drawing the comic that had caused me to un-quit in 2008. Would be a fun way for you all to see how much my art has evolved! But, of course, my laptop decided to die, making it impossible for me to color it. I still hope to sometime, though, and will make another post for that when I can.
But yeah, Reaper will always have a special place in my heart, needless to say. Probably wouldn't be drawing right now, otherwise.
