That One Guy

These pages are from a spread I did for a zine. The topic was "That One Guy". Originally, I wrote a short story for one of the pages and was going to do an illustration for the opposite page but then I thought a comic format would tell the story better and be less of a drag to read. I spent a long time in the writing and thumbnailing stages to get the pacing right and to try to make it as clear as possible using only 2 pages. I'm actually pretty happy with it. A few of the panels could have been more clear but I was working under the gun and it's really the best I could do with the time I had.

It feels so good to actually finish something. I've been in the middle of a bunch of projects for ages and I kind of feel like I've been spinning my wheels, by this point, because I don't have much to show for it all.

Done on Bristol. Media used: Ink, chalk pastel, gouache, white gel pen, and black electrical tape.
