The Month in Comic #24

Originally uploaded by geminica For the last 20 years I've been interested in Mayan glyphs and wanted to find some angle for playing with them, but all I'd done so far was to occasionally copy a few shapes to try to get used to the forms.

Mayan glyphs are solid blocks comprised of 1-5 separate words, so my initial idea was that each block would have a main scene but also a few qualifiers - for instance, the coffee mugs in the first panel, indicating that I was in fact drinking coffee as I fixed bugs at work. But these are daily comics, and I had to go fast. Next time!
