I’m extremely happy that characters like Kikunojo and Yamato exist in One Piece. Both characters are upfront and proud about being trans and everyone around them in the world don’t think twice about it or are immediately corrected. There’s more characters like this in One Piece and I’d love for more mangaka to do this sort of thing. Not much else to say, I’m just very happy these characters exist. I’ll be drawing them again in the future.
It pains me to say and admit to myself, but I have to stop drawing Ms. Fortune. I started the comic on a whim some time ago and it was meant for me to get used to consistently create comics. It served its purpose for a very brief moment.
My life went through drastic changes around that time so I had to put it on hold. Then when things got a little less chaotic, I picked up drawing the comic again. THAT was short lived again as things got super chaotic, but this time it was for the best, mostly.
I got into a little groove consistently making pages, but during that time and developed/am developing several other comic projects. All of which I mapped out and can finish them all. That one detail has me more excited to drop Ms. Fortune to focus on these projects and knock them out one by one.
More word one these comics soon. Thank you so much to those early Ms. Fortune readers and those who stuck around. I truly appreciate it. Don’t worry, a lot of the ideas and themes I had in that comic and planned to implement are being repurposed into these new projects. I will miss Mei Li Cheung and the characters I introduced, but holding onto a project I no longer was excited to draw was holding me back. I’m very amped up for this new era in my comics work!!! Thanks again, please stick around!
