It's been too long since I last made a comic! This is for an anthology collab type thing for MoCCa 2011 that I had the privilege of contributing to.
Like every other Chinese kid, I was made to learn piano at an early age. I had the misfortune of being paired with a terrifyingly large blond Russian man who spoke in a thick accent (I was around 6 at the time, so understanding what the hell any adult was trying to tell me wasn't really a priority) and one of his favourite teaching techniques was to hit my hands every time I played a wrong note. Anyway, this one's for you, Teacher Robert. Thank you for bruising my childhood with your "lessons".
This is a revised version of what actually went to print, since we weren't supposed to use grey.. I've definitely learned that I need to practice value composition and storytelling.
So, excuse the roughness in narrative structure, and I hope you enjoy :)
Any comments, suggestions, etc would be incredibly helpful!
It's been mentioned that pages 6 & 7 are a little confusing..
