Homestead was drawn by L. Nichols as part of the 30 Days of Comics challenge in November 2014. Each page was drawn with the constraint of being drawn with L’s non-dominant hand and inspired by a single word prompt. Cartoonist Kevin Czap provided L with the words.
Sketchy and spare, the drawings evoke images of rural 1700’s America. Barn raising, wood chopping, ships off the shore, and plowed fields provide a snapshot of a life long forgotten.
