The Tap Desktop Calendar is now available for purchase!

Featuring 14 comics about slowing down, growing plants, finding joy in nature, and discovering purpose. You can mix and match which comics you’d like for each month.

New this year: Each comic can be turned into a postcard! I’ve printed a postcard at the back of every comic so all you have to do is simply cut it out and send it to a friend. So you don’t just have a calendar but a set of 14 postcards.

Due to the alarming shipping rates and with the aim of reducing carbon footprint, you can also download the PDF of the calendar, made to fit on A4. ๐Ÿ™‚

 

 

Unfair

It’s hard to help someone who is grieving a grave loss. Life is unfair, as is death. What do you do? You can’t make empty promises or talk about better times when today it’s hard to get out of bed. I made this comic for a dear friend going through a difficult time. I hope there’s some kind of solace for all of us in knowing that you are never alone.

A special kind of privilege

Ramya SriramComics, Life is beautiful, Self-discoveryLeave a Comment

I’ve always made a conscious choice to not be in the rat race, and I’ve found that not chasing money gives you other luxuries. I realize what a privilege it is to be in this position: to be able to decline power and money, and choose the freedom that time and mindspace offers. Over the last 13 years, I’ve balanced a full-time job (source of income) along with my side hustle (my labour of love!). I’ve consciously picked jobs that have made me feel satisfied, worthy, and fulfilled, rather than just adding to my bank balance. Would I have been as happy had I chased bigger paychecks? There’s no way to know for sure. But having had the choice to say no has been incredibly rewarding.ย 

20s vs 30s

20s vs 30s: illustrating the differences in self-awareness, attitudes and existential crises. I seem to have got better at saying no, still have the same passion for train travel, made my social circle smaller but closer, and I continue to be as clueless as I was a decade ago. Only this time, I’m okay with the cluelessness. ๐Ÿ™‚
