This Is How I Roll

Welcome! My name is Tali, and I am talking to you from the future. Thanks so much for reading my comic! I'd like to take a moment to tell you about its backstory.
I started Awkward Paws in middle school. Each week, I would make a new strip and pin it up on our little community corkboard. I drew animals because humans were just too difficult for me at the time. The character of Taily was, as I'm sure you can guess, a stand-in for myself (over the years she has drifted away from being "me" and become something else entirely; mainly, irrelevant). At first I didn't really mean for the comic to become anything at all - it was just a fun way to pass the time after school. However, encouraged by friends and family, I eventually decided to post my work online and make it available to a greater audience while continuing to draw new strips.

After middle school, I began drawing the comic digitally. The art style gradually improved, as well as the writing (I hope!). The characters have been morphing and disappearing and reappearing over the years, and hopefully one day I'll actually get all of them to where I want them to be. The material that middle-school-Tali gave me is really weird sometimes.

Anyways, that's my little story. Sit back, relax, and enjoy Awkward Paws!

If you'd like to jump straight to the digitally-done strips, where all the new characters have been introduced and all the old ones phased out, I'd recommend starting HERE!

I love 'em, too! The more groan-worthy, the better, honestly...
