Just a quick bit --
DC's imprint Minx has revamped their website and now offers a mini-comic layout in PDF form so you can, in their words, "Tell Your Life In Pictures."
This is very exciting for me, as I now have a modest but structured template with which to put my modest but not incredibly awful comic drawing skills to use.
I figure that perhaps I can finish one 4-page mini-comic in time for the MoCCA Art Fest this weekend and either sell it or if that's sort of illegal because it's not my template at least give it away for good will.
Here are the topics I have been kicking around:
1) "My Friggin' Cat" -- about how my cat vomited in not one but both of my new shoes from Aerosoles, and my BF said he didn't mean to do it but he totally did because he was bitter about the salmon cat food.
2) "My Freaky-Ass Psychic Abilities" -- how I used to read tarot in Union Square park and these tourists from Chicago were totally freaked out because I was so accurate and then one of them took a photo of me because if the stuff came true he wanted to remember it but I was totally afraid this was just to get me arrested.
3) "Teenage Angst" -- like about when this friend from high-school explained to me all the basics regarding sex on a 15-minute bus ride and I was so freaked out because I was like "how could I have missed all this shit?" but you know how I could have missed it because I was reading @%##@% New Mutants and Peter Porker Spiderham that's how. And then later we almost got beaten up by this crazy woman.
4) "Oprah -- She's Wonderful" -- she really is wonderful. A biographical comic about real life.
So these are some thoughts. Please let me know if you have a preference.
