Along those lines (of looking backwards), you may have noticed that since I started working on this blog again, it's been a long time since I reposted one of my old zines. The main reason for that is that I can't figure out an ideal formatting for this project -- I feel like the zines are never big enough to be clearly readable. However, I came across a neat cache of old cards and comix I did years ago, like in the early 1990's for the most part. I'm posting some of them throughout the day, most likely, and over the next few days. the ones I post today are gonna be black and white unfortunately, but, we'll see, I will try to hone my technical skills.
please love me. please justify my non-belief in god. please make me rich. please keep me and my family safe.
Legend of Legendary band Esther 1994
This comic is an example of how people sometimes aren't their true selves when they are hanging out with someone else -- but not in any meaningful way, in this case. I drew this one when me and my friend Janet had a slumber party (1994), we were both drawing comics as a slumber party activity, but it wasn't in my true style, like, the humor isnt' really mine, but i was trying to impress her, as was she when she drew hers. two things I think are really funny about this are that 1) we mention a girl named Esther in our class, but Esther was like 11 or something -- it was an elective with all different age groups, but me and Janet were at least a few years older than her, so I"m surprised we cared. second, my misconception of Saint Morrissey in this is weird. I love everything about him, from his homo-erotic/asexual vibe to his tongue-in-cheek sense of drama, to EVERYTHING.
