Audrey O. is procrastinating just because she’s not able to put procrastination into the right words. If only she knew…!
Hey everyone! Every big and important task brings with it a lot of expectation. Sometimes anxiety wants to come along too. When we don’t know how to split the task into smaller bits, we don’t even know where to begin. I don’t say this often enough, but making Audrey O. is something like that for me. Thinking up an original idea, translating it into comic strip frames and sketching it out consistently in the sketchy, casual style that has become signature of Audrey O. – all this overwhelms me every week. Sometimes, even by Friday night, I don’t know where to begin. And then The Guy suggested me that’s what this week’s comic should be about – so here we are!!
Audrey O. (Vol.1 E9) – Procrastination
Most of our days of the week, and most of our hours within the weekdays are spent in the office. Other than that, not much even happens during most weeks, especially when you could somehow not finish your work during office hours and had to bring it home! Audrey O. is no different, and this weekend she’s been working. Let’s find out why…
Why does Coco have to always be so right? And who writes that kinda thing in official reports? Although we do feel that procrastination should be allowed as an official excuse for not achieving work targets.
Do you procrastinate too? How does it affect your work life? And does Audrey’s boss remind you of yours (he sure does me!)!
Did you enjoy today’s semi-colored comic strip, and would you like me to try more colored Audrey O. strips? Comment below! Lemme know!
Muaah! XOXO 🙂
