Author’s note: I did an interview about Now Recharging with Ink, Sweat and Tears! You can read more about the making of this webcomic, my inspirations, who I find hard to draw, and more 😀 Check it out here!

Many thanks to M. Sorcier, who is also the creator of two webcomics – Sacrimony: A Tale of Love, Life and Death – In No Particular Order and The Misadventures of Buddy and Friend!
