 "New Year, New Us" is a six panel black and white comic. Each panel is hand drawn with rounded corners. The first panel is an image of fireworks on a black sky. There are two caption bubbles inside this panel. The top left hand one reads “Jan, 2023” in hand lettered text. The bottom captions says, “I wasn’t sure what my new year’s resolution would be this year. More art? money? Love?” Panel two shows a bald man in glasses looking at a cellphone. On the cellphone, there is a picture of a fat cat. The caption on this panel reads, “until I met her. The perfect woman!” Panel three on the top row shows the man in winter clothes walking down a sidewalk. He is struggling to carry the very round cat in her kennel. The caption box at the top says, “and then I knew what both our new year’ resolutions would be!” Second row of panels begins. The first horizontal panel shows the cat up close in the carrier, cross eyed. There is an arrow pointing to her, and on the end of the arrow it says “dizzy.” The caption box on the bottom left side says “once we where home and settled in, I got to work quickly.” The next panel shows the bald man pointing a tv remote at a flatscreen tv. He’s seen looking over his shoulder, and he’s wearing an exercise headband. The tv has a fit woman on it, like an 80s aerobic video, and the man is asking someone off panel “Ready?”  In the last panel the man works out in his living room with his cat, who wears a matching sweat band and lifts a tiny weight. The woman on the tv says “and a one, and a two, and a three, and lift-!” The caption bubble in the bottom center of the panel say “New year, new us!”
