PORCH is the result of some fine tip pens and a rather upbeat attitude regarding my mental health. It’s actually a change of pace for me, but probably for the better. This first strip features flowers, medication and shapeless creatures discussing their psychological issues.

I’m Maggie. If you like this piece of fiction, you might like some other things I’ve done, like my 2015 novel “You Ruined Everything”, my podcast network “The Feel Bad Network” or my feed over at Ello. You can also find some published work for sale over at my Payhip , buy prints/stickers and more at my online store on Big Cartel, or support my work at my Patreon! Anything helps & is appreciated, thanks!
