I think part of the inspiration for this strip was my own religious separation. I’ve been agnostic since about 6th grade (through my own thought processes) although at that point I did not have the word for it. But I still had this fear of Hell. It was reading William Blake’s “The Marriage of Heaven and Hell” which lead me to realize that Hell is a Christian concept, and so isn’t necessarily something to fear at all.

Ah, funny funny life.

Anyhow, I have a bit of a hard time letting others take care of me, which is also an inspiration for this strip.
