Tomorrow’s comic is one of the first ones I made based on the Sayings of the Desert Fathers and it was originally publish in black and white in Dodo Comics #1.
Besides being a very visual story (and thus easily lends itself to comics), I love how Arsenius is so chill about being interrupted during a moment of such intense mystical fervency.
I put some visual references to Monastery of Saint Pishoy in Wadi el Natrun, Egypt even though the monastery wasn’t built until long after Arsenius was gone.
The image above is probably more like what the Desert Fathers would have lived in.
See you bright and early tomorrow for new comic book day!
