The Beginning

Welcome to The Glass Urchin. My name is Auilix, and I’ll be your host for the moment. After many attempts to tame the rampant ideas and wild stories in my head through comics, I’ve finally decided to try my hand at one of my greatest adventures: my own life. I hope you’ll enjoy the comics to come, as much as I’ve enjoyed drawing them and coloring them in.

You reach me at a time when I’m not too sure about my future paths (who really is sure anyway?). Having just been laid off from a company, my first real job (and a great one at that), I’m not sure where my life will go. Likewise, I’ve no idea where this story will go. And with that, let’s step inside mysterious world of today.

    Bottom row, second from the left – that’s Ananth, the guy who does some of “Johnny Wander”, yeah?.

    Great job! I’m sure there’s others I can’t place yet.

    @ Filty – I don’t think Johnny Wander was even around then (maybe?)
    Also they’re not really supposed to be anyone in particular, it’s just random people and things :D
