born in a white town (page 2)

i like this page a lot. i hope y’all can read it. i have the main script and then a side panel of events as well. a scanner would obviously work better than my trying to stand there with my camera and get enough light while not creating a shadow while trying to frame it so it will crop evenly while trying not get bumped by a feral child running past.

if there are bits you cannot read, let me know, and i will either get a better picture or write out what is said in the comic here in the blog post.

hopefully you get the gist of it.

page two! a timeline of my whiteness. that i remember all my relationships with other races is telling of how little diversity i have had in my life. despite my being so fucking progressive and open-minded and choosing to live in “progressive” and “open-minded” college towns.

what? two posts in one day? has the world gone mad?

i am going to teach myself how to do chinese brush painting and do some work on canvases. in case you were wondering.

so! last night i was staring at my piece klu klux kraken and feeling unhappy with it. i began to wonder what it would look like if i started with the brush instead of the pen. this is what happened. i did most of it with brush and ink, and then i finished with my pen (not much pen at all.)

it is basically a doodle done on a piece of paper i had already messed up. just a “let’s see what happens.” but i do like it better than the first one. i really really enjoy chinese brush painting. i can’t wait to learn more about it and start trying to do my stuff with the influence of that school of art.
