I'm pushing myself with this Nightlight story and I'm really proud of how it's turning out. I really wanted this family to feel real and so I'm packing in lots of little details. Some of them are things you can catch if you look closely but others are more personal.
This panel from the first comic for example is a favorite of mine because it's right out of my life. The way Grace's Mom pulls her into that little side hug is something I see Kara do with Gabe all the time while she is cooking. It's a little moment from my life that I gave this family. I also love the Dad's studio door. He let the kids paint on it and you can see at the bottom it's just a mess. As the kids grow up you see shapes and stick figures. Then some hand prints and I like to think the hearts are from his wife. The blue hand print belongs to the Dad. It's just a door but I think it tells a little story about this family. I won't call out any of the other little secrets but I've checked the forum and I can see that folks are finding some of them.

As always, thanks for indulging us for a couple weeks.
