Stamford cartoonist launches ‘Half Full’ comic strip

Why do so many people feel the need to document everything that happens in their lives?

Imagine, as Maria Scrivan did, if Moses had recorded a Snapchat when he parted the Red Sea.

The Stamford cartoonist takes a wry and irreverent look at the misuse of technology and other foibles of everyday life in “Half Full,” a comic strip that was recently picked up by the popular comics website, Go Comics.

“From airline travel to social media, couples therapy or house hunting, it’s not always easy to see the bright side but if you wait long enough, there is usually something to laugh about,” reads the introduction to “Half Full.”

Scrivan, a graduate of Greenwich High School, has built an impressive resume in the last few years, publishing her work in MAD Magazine, Parade Magazine, and, among others.

Check out the interview she did with the Greenwich Time in June.
