Pinwheels is a little comic that I have been working on since 2012. (Why it took so long to write the script, to draw, to color, and to fix it in Photoshop – I do not know. Hahaha!)

I remember having the idea for it back in 2012, when my Mom and I were driving on the way to the city, and I noticed a makeshift stand displaying various pinwheels of different colors by the side of the road. It has been there for as long as I can remember. I thought then, maybe, there’s a story here… Suddenly, an idea was born! Until years passed by and the plot changed, the characters changed, the morals changed. By just a little bit. But I’m glad to have finished it now. Thank You, Lord!

It’s just simple little comic about love – how it is supposed to be free to give and to receive and must not be out of fear, guilt, or pressure. This story has been inspired by the highest and purest love there is. 🙂
