New Comic

This is American Independent Feature Film, mine and Gar Shanley's new little comic that we'll have at the Dublin Zine Festival this weekend. The comic is an adaptation of one of Gar's blog posts over on Fugger. It's a much more sketchy affair than what I usually do but I thought that suited the story.
Also, in an effort to push myself, I set out ten days to draw a twenty page comic. I managed to do that because of the sketchy style, hand lettering it in childlike writing; and making a rule to let each page stand as it is no matter how much I might want to tweak or change the drawings. It was an exercise in completing what I set out to make and  not being too precious or obsessive about it all. It's a challenge to learn to get out of your own way and simply tell the story.
