The original panel for today’s #inktober is by Daryl Seitchik, from her story “Color War” appearing in Subcultures, A Comics Anthology.
This is a fantastic comic, and like much of Daryl’s work (Her series ‘Missy’ is currently available from Oily Comics) it captures how creepy and tribal it is to be a kid.
Once again I was really drawn to a symmetrical image - and I think I wanted to give myself a break and try memorizing something with really recognizable structure. One great thing about Daryl’s drawings is how full they feel for how few lines she uses.
In fact, in my reproduction I notice I took the ease of line for granted. The grass forms more of a pattern (In the original) and the treeline has much more implied detail.
Just added 477 bright circle and Middle School Missy to my Etsy shop. These are the last available print copies in the whole world (for now)! Each shipment comes with a sketchbook drawing of whatever you want.
We are pleased to announce NEW SOUTH FESTIVAL OF LITERARY ARTS & CARTOONING, a very special project we’ve been working on for some time now.
newsouthfest (follow us!) is a continuation of Foxing's mission. We plan to establish a large-scale books and comics festival for June 2015: a four-day event with two days of festival, bookended by corresponding events like an art show and concert. The festival, taking place on Saturday (6/7) and Sunday (6/8), will feature a book fair with 120-150 exhibitors and cross-disciplinary panels. New South will celebrate independent literature, alternative comics, small presses, and print culture. It will be highly curated, focused, fresh, and irreverent.
