The Secret Life of a Naturist #20 “The Vigil” Part 1

The current storyline was discussed with the editor at Clothesfreelife back in March due in part on the subject matter regarding gay bashing. He liked the idea but suggested I incorporate a naturist element to it as it is was not some thing that is typically associated with being a nudist. Society often have issues with anyone who is different or don’t comply with their views or lifestyle and this is true for anyone who is gay or nudists.

I didn’t think I should bring the story in the present so I went back to the past when Johnny and Dan had known each other after a full semester in University.

A lot of ideas came flooding in on how best to present this and decided on giving it a graphic novel feel. Evening setting, shadows from street lights and dramatic scenes that described what was happening without too much narrative.

Having gone through a mugging back in my late twenties, this was a difficult story for me to capture on paper. It was not an easy strip to create in a few panels which is why I opted to use “to be continued” for the first time.

Here is: “The Vigil” Part 1

I welcome any feedback you may have regarding the story you have just read. Unlike many comic strips published today I want to be able to bring a human element to the cartoon and not simply humour.
