So, I wrote a little comic book ‘zine thing. I’ll use it as a display for my Instant Book Program that I’m running at the Library this weekend. I just found out that the Madison ‘Zinefest is this weekend and I might bring it there, too.
Here’s a page done just in pencil. I only posted one picture here because it’s not very interesting to see them all. I thought it would be but, no, it’s just repetitive.
I went over the pencil with a superfine sharpie (truly a super and fine marker – I love them).
Actually, I decorated it a little bit more – it looks so boring here.
I have to preface this with these disclaimers: I don’t obsess on my school years; this story happened to come up as the result of a Lynda Barry workshop. I was a weird and nervous child but I’m fine now, thank you. This story is totally true.
|I did add the words “Math Test” on this one.|
|Scary Miss O. I used to have nightmares about her.|
|And I added the words “Test Results” because it wasn’t really clear.|
Here’s the whole shebang before it gets “instant book-a-cised”
I made a few copies just to see if it would work. I’m going to make some more now that I’ve seen them. It was truly fun.

Those look so good! Your drawings remind me of the Ramona books by Beverly Cleary. Great job!
