It’s the most wonderful time of the month! Another Giselle Clarkson comic. Today our resident illustrator extraordinaire takes us through her process – and struggles – with visual references. And if you haven’t seen it yet, Giselle’s latest collaboration is out now – kids cookbook Egg & Spoon, written by Alexandra Tylee and published by Gecko Press!)
