Learning Japanese-Hiragana-A and I

I've been learning Japanese for a while and haven't done much self-directed art work. I am hopeless at remembering languages so thought it would be good to combine the two. I had a stab at drawing some comic strips like the one below based on my old Japanese teacher, who made a pretty good cartoon. I think the alphabet works better and it's also quicker to produce.

Disclaimer: I'm not a calligrapher - or a reliable teacher of Japanese. My efforts at reproducing Japanese characters would make Fujiwara no Teika bite his brush in half.
