How the art has changed over the last two years
AKA how doing webcomics makes you a better artist by force
rafa-evolutionWithout a doubt I think I’ve improved most upon Rafa. His LOOKS (not personality) modeled after a blonde Ecuadoran man I met briefly.
It took me years to get him almost to that man. Many more years to come?
Next…Elan! woo boy.
Don’t forget there are sketches (maybe spoilerish but out of context, I’m careful) and previews at the TUMBLR page!

    This must be the most touching, most well drawn(!), most beautiful and most lovable webcomic that I have read. (And the boy love theme doesn’t really hurt, either). Some of those journal pages really had my heart break… I am so glad I found it, and I do look forward to much more to come!

    • themice

      Thank you for such a kind comment! I put a lot of my heart into the story and art, and the characters are very real to me.

  • onna

    I sat down and read this all the way through. Beautiful artwork combined with a beautiful, gentle story about two souls who found each other.

    Looking forward to their continuing story!

    • themice

      Gracias! ♥♥

    I stumbled acrossed this randomly and I’ve been following the updates regularly! I have to say, this is a beautiful story. It combines romance in a decent way, while keeping you intent on what will happen next but also keeping it real like life can actually be. I tell you what, if you ever sold this in a book shop, I would be buying it off the shelves~!

    Keep up the great work! <3

    • themice

      When I’m done as a side project I’ll redo the pages with all I’ve learned and perhaps publish it. Everything moves so slowly when you got a day job to pay the bills (and I have a great creative job) and then come home to illustrate two books & then find time work on my REAL love – Elan & Rafa. :) (and exercise a lot).

      • Sillycat

        Oooh I’ll definitely look forward to it! And hey, I totally understand the job thing and how it can take alot outta ya! But believe me I’ll follow this for however long it takes you can be sure of that~! <3

        • themice

          I think I might follow TJ & Amal and Tripping Over You artists and do a side publishing of a NC17 version first though. That would be fun FOR ME. :)

  • I just found this yesterday and read all through it. I just wanted to say (somewhere) that Elan is VERY well drawn. He reminds me so much of an ex I have who is Israeli Jew, the delicate-ness, the hair, so many things. REALLY WELL DONE!

    • themice

      Thank you <3. I've been intimately acquainted with the culture for a long time. :)

  • Sanada

    Found this today and read it all the way through. I love it and will be watching it on Wednesdays.

    • themice

      Thank you! I hope you continue to love and enjoy it!

  • Veronika Redbird

    Had found this long ago but then stoppend being reading on the mobile too annoying.. Refound it today! I’m so damn in love with the story!
