happy feast of st. valentine everyone!
thinking about snow (and also about how i am bad at drawing environments)
this is the first “spontaneous” comic, as in not for school or anyone but myself, I’ve done in a while, a long while. it’s not very good but maybe it is a step in the right direction.
here’s a little experiment that I don’t really feel like finishing…not right now anyway.
character designs for a class assignment.
what do y’all think? I’m not sure about the hair on the middle character….
here is a pattern that I made for a book project!
A Debt Repaid
Hi everyone! This is my most recent class assignment. We were told to adapt one of Aesop’s fables into a 6-page comic; I chose the Mouse and the Lion. I took it in a kind of Promethean direction….

Here’s my most recent project—a mini comic which we could only draw using Ed Emberly’s symbolic language. It was an exercise in how much you could convey with simple shapes. It was a lot of fun to do, and actually the simplistic style appeals to me a lot—I might go back to it sometime!
The story is based on a Coyote tale from the Karuk of northern California. Thanks, Coyote, for lending me your story.
This week’s homework haul. So good!! #myclassissupertalented #minicomics #awesome #comics #ccs #homework #comicbootcamp
carohoku asked: thanks! and, uwu! you made a doonesbury fan proud! that's kind of stuff trudeau would have written. :D
!!! Hooray!! I have succeeded! :D
carohoku asked: a very silly question (coming from someone who has a macbook for 5 years now) but how do you get into full screen mode? :O
oh! you can just click on the little thingy that says “high-res” on your dash underneath the photo…or you can right click the image and select “open link in new tab”!
This week we were given an assignment to write three autobio strips in the style of an assigned cartoonist. I was given Doonesbury to analyze and imitate, and although at first I wasn’t thrilled I learned a lot in the process! Doonesbury’s strength is in its heavy blacks, simplistic and easy to read style, and even lettering.
I recommend fullview since the images look a little grainy and pixelated shrunk down like this.

Look!! I’m in this!!
The completed print! Now picture this times fifty five. Six hours of my life gone forever. But the print looks good! In retrospect though it would look better with three colors…that’s for next time though!
