Today I'll attempt to draw at least 3 Cafe Con Leche comic strips. Since I don't have the daily gig in my way, I hope to get lots done. CCL is a really personal comic strip to me because much of its subject matter is based on actual events that have happened in my life, which often makes it difficult to draw. The lead character Trey is an African-American professional who grew up in the inner-city and is just realizing that his entire world has changed. Just having married his new South American wife, Trey is still trying to balance the corporate world and his inner city roots. Not to mention the challenges of a new marriage. Having live most of that scenario I can tell you that it can be quite stressful.
