I actually finished something!

Wowee, what an exciting post this week!

First, I actually finished something – GEEPERS!

A few months ago (more like 8 months ago) poet and story-writer Neil Kaufman sent me this short story of just dialogue and asked me to interpret the story and draw a comic for it.  THESE ARE THE RESULTS.

Not scanned yet, but here are the pages, all drawn and ready to go

Last night a friend of mine gave me this poster – The DIY Manifesto

it’s awesome – everything i do and want to be

 

“So go ahead, build your Maginot Line of  *** jobs, inflated gas prices, controlled schools and mass media.  Throw America in that briar patch.

Where can we live? In straw-bale houses and abandoned building and big group houses in the neighborhoods you dont even notice.

What can we eat? Stuff we grow on rooftops, in backyards, in planters made of milk crates lined with one dollar shower curtains.  And of course the leftovers from your dumpsters.

What can we wear?  Your castoffs, stuff e swap amongst us, stuff we sew and cut down and spiff up and rework a hundred different ways.

How can we get around?  By bikes everywhere, mass transit when we can, biodiesel cars where we must.  With skateboards and scooters and plain ol’ walkin’.  ”

 

this is just a small portion – its brilliant!   Thanks Jen :)

Some Fun and Follow-Up

Remember my last post, me gushing over R. Sikoryak and all?  Well, likewise, i got to catch a little of Jason Lutes speak last night.  Jason Lutes, aka cartooning babe-tron.

This is another example of a someone i see everyday, knowing hes a cartoonist, handing him coffee all the time, discussing Anton Checkhov with him, and all the while not knowing who he is or what he’s done and how fantasticly talented experienced and beautiful he and his work is.

Author of Berlin and Jar of Fools, i learned so much from him; hearing his process and what he’s learned working in the biz – and i could only stay for half of it!

I CANT BELIEVE IT

I ACTUALLY started my book – the book ive been thinking about, and scribbling on napkins and receipts, for two years.  the story that ive been writing my entire life.

I STARTED IT.

why now?

Because I wasn’t able to raise enough money for school.  HOWEVER, i am still moving there, and I am not giving up, because… well because that’s just not in my makeup.  If I fail, or if you tell me that I can’t, it just makes me want to do it more, and better for that matter…

SOOOOOO here.  Here are the first three pages.  And that’s all you’re getting!!!  THAT’S ALL!  BECAUSE I AM GOOD AT THIS, AND YOU SHOULD WANT TO READ THIS BOOK BECAUSE ITS GOOD.
