here is the next page of the comic weener coop that i posted pages of back in january?
i tried it with panels & with ink wash paint. i’m not sure. i think i like it better this way. although i did enjoy it when it had no clear panels….
weener coop is based on my own experiences living in a cooperative house. one person i loathe quite thoroughly is represented. others might be collaborations of personalities. the character most possessed by me…would be the zombie, “gert.” gert’s first comment is in response to something twinkle said on the previous page:
i’m not sure about the ink paint. let me know if you have an opinion on it.
there are two people with the same name–just spelled differently, in weener coop–twinkle & twynkle. twynkle is a goth girl…her name is supposed to be ironic. she will later try to change it so that people will take her more seriously, but that is in a yet unwritten page of the comic. so the house debates about diversity as they seek to fill a vacancy. this was a re-occurring theme when i lived in a cooperative house. also, what exactly is diversity? i am white, but a weirdo….
i really like these & find them really funny because i lived through them in an actual cooperative house. cooperative living is funny in a really frustrating way for me. i started this storyline, but, unfortunately only have 3 pages of it written. after posting it here & reading it again & getting re-acquainted with some of my characters–i would like to get back into writing this comic. i hope i can find the time & energy to do so. the artwork is a bit less demanding than moses jones & the storyline is a bit more developed, so i might be able to pump it out a bit quicker.
