Apparently, it’s World Diabetes Day. Would’ve really loved to draw something for it, but I only found out about it a few hours ago. I’ve been a type-1 diabetic since March 2003, so…uh, shame on me for not knowing sooner? LOL.
As should surprise none of you at this point, I love to include diabetic characters in my projects. Sometimes they’re simply secondary—like Coco’s little brother Tad in Echo Effect—but as should be even less of a surprise, I like to make them main characters most often. I have so many you guys have yet to meet. You’ve all met Jay already, though! He’s one of two protagonists in the horror comic I’m developing. Since I wasn’t able to draw something fun for WDD, here are some links to past artwork of him, where the insulin pump he uses as a diabetic is on full display…
And here’s a glimpse of a silly comic strip I started ages ago, where Jay’s insulin pump plays an important role. (This will make sense if/when I’m able to share the completed version!)
Now’s my cue to forget about WDD, because Echo Effect is returning THIS FRIDAY and I still have so much work to do! *flails*
