I really enjoy drawing Joseph and Cecilia together, so this page and the one that follows were really fun to work on.
yep she's a keeper.
@Meleeman: She does care about him a lot, that's for sure. :)
Awww those two...
I can probably write an essay on the ways disability can affect relationships by now and let's just say that Joseph's remark about being a nurse is pretty much why Quinton ended up getting a divorce. :[
@Oly-RRR: :( And people tend to think it's all about the abled person sacrificing their time and whatever- which again shows how people tend to ignore the disabled person, even in a conversation on the context of their own relationships. It's not always the able bodied person walking out (augh pun not intended) on the disabled person- as long as both are people with some degree of agency, it can happen either way.
@mitchellbravo: Yeah, exactly! I notice that even outside of romantic relationships family members acting as helpers/carers and the disabled person they are caring for might have the same interests but they almost always have different agenda but able-bodied people tend to get heard more...
I'm really glad to see your comics dealing with this theme! I'm uhhh not the kind of person who thinks every story should have "a set" of minorities so it's "politically correct" but it's a complicated subject that should be seen from multiple sides and always seems to be covered only from one point of view in the media.
@Oly-RRR: Thanks! That was something that made me want to stick around reading your comic as well :) You'd think that by now we'd see more media from the point of view of the disabled instead of things that are just "about" them, but I guess we're just not really there yet. I guess because it makes people question a lot of "what does it mean to be normal" which makes people uncomfortable.
