What is Meditation? (work in progress) PAGES 18-21

“What is Meditation? ABIDE AS BEING” is an ongoing confessional slapstick autobiography docu-comic about meditation—daily panels can be found on Instagram under Poopsiepenguin... and the complete final pages will continue to be posted on this blog (as soon as all their panels are posted individually on Instagram and Facebook)!

These pages feature the beginning of the first ever live comics interview with spiritual teacher Edward "Edji" Muzika.

I just finished the final Photoshop for page 38.  Please let me know if you have any questions!

And the content is below... but it's well worth a visit to Chester's Patreon page, where he posts working process panels and stories of his life!

I had lunch with cartoonist Matthew Brown yesterday and enjoyed listening to some stories about his spiritual teachers. I’d love to repeat them here, but Matthew’s putting them in his next graphic novel, so you should experience them there. I’ve mentioned before that Matthew’s serializing that work online:
We had lunch at the Future Bakery, next to the old location of the Brunswick House pub, which is now a Rexall drug store. Matthew asked if I’d been in the place now that it’s a drug store. I hadn’t. Matthew said, “It’s a really nice Rexall.”
After saying goodbye to Matthew, I decided to take a look in the Rexall. The contrast between the original Brunswick House decor and the drug store products is a bit strange:
On the way home I passed by this beautiful zig-zaggy tree:
