Hello and welcome to Iris Tiger Tails, a series of comics and stories I’m working on featuring my character Iris and all of her friends. These comics and stories are based off of my own childhood, growing up in the East Springfield neighborhood of Springfield, MA… if you’ve ever wondered what it was like growing up in the 80’s/90’s, or if you’re old enough to remember those days yourself, you’re going to love them.
So, here’s where we meet Jane, Iris’s older sister. Jane is 11 years old (sixth grade), while Iris is 9 years old (fourth grade). As you can see, Jane and Iris don’t exactly get along. It’s not easy having a Rainbow Tiger for a younger sister, that’s for sure. But Jane has somehow managed to not kill Iris yet, which may very well put her in the running for the sainthood one day! It helps that she has an awesome best friend named Helen (the yellow leopard) and oh yeah, not to mention a massive crush on Helen’s twin brother, the adorable Zachary (the white leopard). What do you think, is the feeling mutual? Judging from all the little hearts swimming all around the two of them I think it just might be!
I also have stories that go with the comics, that help explain things. You certainly don’t have to read them, but they do expand upon the world I’ve created a little bit more. You can find a link to each story below the corresponding comic. The first one is called Moving Day.
