Long time no see!
The comic's not coming back (I'm an adult now comicking ended up not being the direction my life went), but I thought it would be fun to redraw the first page of HanaLi! I still love this story and wish I could have the time and energy to share it with everyone.
Make the wholesome wlw content you want to see in the world! Since I can't, I'll recommend someone who is: two dear friends are creating the comic Rainbow, the script of which I helped beta. It used to be on Smackjeeves, but is now on Webtoons and Tapastic, and is made by Sunny and Kit Gloom. Here's the Tapas link https://tapas.io/series/RAINBOW
