Jeannette Doesn't Work Part II

This is the second installment of my "Jeannette Doesn't Work" comic series. Documenting my struggle to make money post college graduation. The first one is here and describes the adventures of standing in front of a door for eight hours. The above piece goes all the way back to October, and my temporary job working at a Halloween store.

And I've had plenty of shitty jobs since. You won't even believe what the next one will be about. I should be on the cover of the UMass Dartmouth brochure.

This has a sense of some form of an absurdism play or something. Ack. I grok not...

Otherwise, the illustration is just perfect. Hope to see more.

It's great that you can look back on it with humour.

I like it - it reminds me of a very dark comic I wrote but never drew about my worst job ever (I kept it for 6 years because I hated it so much). can't wait for the next installment

I cannot believe you used the word "shitty"! First of all you are too amart not to be able to come up with a better word since you are a college graduate. Secondly, all of your family looks at this website! Including your mother.

This is so funny and dark, your life seems full of energy and strong emotion, and it's turned into some fascinating work, love the artwork.

Wow, a whole day of small business practice right there :). This is wonderful comic, with great humanity and pathos, even with the harsh content. And you know how to select, frame and colour images really well!

Thanks for all the nice comments [except for my mom, of course]!
