Gone

You’ve all been eager to see more concept art of Tess and Jay’s childhood, right? No? Well, too bad, ‘cause that’s what I’m posting today!

…aaaand Ethan never talks about his wife again.

Because of how secretive Ethan is, Tess and Jay still argue about exactly what happened to their mom years later. (Tess is convinced their dad killed her. Jay thinks it's possible that she simply ran off.)

Everyone supporting me on Patreon can see a high-res version of this comic strip here. Want to learn more about Ethan in general? Patrons also have access to WIPs and art of his time as a human!

  1. I think he ate her.

    1. Eating her would take "till death do us part" to a whole new level. LOL. And thank you!

  5. Just because I need silliness right now, I'm just imagining him swallowing her like a snake. haha

  6. Maybe she was a CIA operative and died, but he has to keep it secret?

  7. Yeah. Ethan turned her into a vampire. It looks like that kind of a family. ;)

    1. LOL, if that's the case, it didn't work out too well for Ethan, since he's a single dad now... XD

  9. Cool idea to do some cartoons from their childhood. Like everyone else already said, you did a great job with the facial expressions here.

    Hmmm, have the kids checked their mother's closet? I can't imagine any gal leaving ALL of her stuff behind voluntarily. (Not to mention her kids!)

    1. Thank you! And LOL, seeing how their mom's closet is also their dad's closet...it's probably not the best idea for them to go snooping in there. XD

  10. Maybe they'll unravel the mystery someday.

    1. Tess thinks what happened to their mom is obvious, so she's more concerned with keeping herself and her little brother safe from vampires. :P

  11. I just noticed the coloring book! That is so fun.
    Have you ever thought about in addition to the strips, making a color book from them?
    YOU, have a great one.

    1. I never have, actually. It's hard enough getting people interested in my comics, so it'd probably be even harder to get anyone interested in a coloring book, LOL.

  12. Great art tackles deep concepts, and this certainly is one. Power to you:)
