My final semester long project in its printed form. 100% Black and white, saddle stitch. This project was challenging to say the least.
It made me to track my time, realize what I can and can’t do and really deal with the printing of a product. It was so hard to constantly have to draw and write new content.
I always understood cartooning to be difficult but hearing about it and doing
it are two different things. It was also a test of acceptance, because I had to realize that if I spent the time to make the art as good as I possibly could I would miss my deadline. I had to accept that I’m still learning to use a tablet and that this project is more of a technical exercise than a creative one. I still ended up putting a lot of time into the art just for fun, paying homage to artists like KC Green and Ryan Pequin. But in the end it was the jokes I had to focus on.
Above are picture of the book when it was printed (actually taken by me the day it was printed and bound). Also a screen cap of the cover and a few comics from Rough Start for better viewing.
