High Aspirations

Nicole Smeltzer:

My crazy move got even crazier… since my whole life is still in boxes, here’s another reblog from a very early comic I made. I still have high aspirations, do you?

PS– I have been updating my other cut-paper art blog at nicolesmeltzer.com, or you can follow along on my instagram. I am working on a new comic with every spare moment I have, so stay tuned :)

When we were little, it was very popular to tell children they could grow up to be anything they wanted to be. So when Tess was asked what she wanted to be when she grew up, she answered very earnestly…

The sun's glare is harsh

Tess closes her eyes and concentrates

Tess begins to rise off the groundTess is higher than the birdsTess breaks through Earth's atmosphereTess approaches the sunTess stands next to the sun nonchalantly BUMP!Tess usurps the sun's spotTess replaces the sun

…”I want to be the sun”

Hi everyone! I’m really busy with a crazy move right now, so I’m re-blogging one of my favorite comics from last year. I am only having one studio day a week right now, and I am working on several different fun projects besides The Middlest Sister, but I will do my best to get a fresh new comic out by the end of the month. Until then, please enjoy this reblog :)
