I am working at my desk, writing with a green pen. There is also green in my body. Text says "sometimes ...". In the next panel I stop writing, the green is gone. I hold the pen up and tap it. Text says "I run out of ink". I am no longer at my desk. In the final panel I am walking on the green grass, listening to green music. The text says "and have to refill"


This is about creativity, which I firmly believe is green.  However, it can be about other things too if you like.

This comic is available in my store! It’s available as a print, mini print, poster, travel mug, and other things.

    This is so true. I have had so many ideas sparked by walking around. You can only export ideas so much without also importing ideas.

      Funnily enough, I called this comic Output/Input in drafts.

    Yes, that thing. I am hoping to do this soon in my beloved mountains that I have not been in over a year.

    I agree with your idea here 1000%. I meant to write 100 and got 1000 and realized that is more what I meant. Anyway. Green every day for all of us, I hope.

    I run out of colour quite a lot, so I’m glad my refill is within a handful of minutes drive for me.

    It’s actually quite sad, I think, that so many people live in places where being able to access nature is a planned daytrip or more away, something for a special break or holiday. Some profess to love a city life but that much concrete and traffic and stimulation would empty my colour instantly. Even parks feel like they’re a reluctant afterthought to the busy busy money spinning (yes, that was meant to be two busy’s…) going on elsewhere.

    Anyway, country boy perspective. Carry on.

      I don’t *only* recharge around nature. I find walking (when illness allows) and taking in other creative stuff (e.g., listening to music, reading, going somewhere new) helpful too.

      That said, nature is just … good. Plants are soothing. I love being around them. I spent a few years living in a (not very big) city, and I didn’t hate it, in fact I liked plenty about it, but DANG I missed horizons. Underrated phenomenon, horizons.

    So this is how the lean, green, creative machine is made. I hope you were able to get your fill.

    Nicely done, I didn’t notice the green until the last image.
