Something Tangible

*Sigh of Relief*

I have something tangible. It's the first three pages of my comic about a girl who moves to a new school only to be targeted by a random girl for a random reason (I know it sounds like ABC, but it's different I promise!). Their class will eventually go on a field trip to the MoMa, where, lo and behold, the girl and her nemesis get lost in the city and find themselves up against a bike messenger gang!! Ahhhhhh!!! They fight the gang, flee on the bikes and ends up with some kind of resolution that's forthcoming.

It's at www.stanford.edu/~cseverin (look at the .tiff files). I'd like to thank JessJ for her constant Meyer support; I'd like to thank Photoshop for turning ideas into reality; I'd also like to thank coffee and cinammon tea for making it all possible. Oh, you guys are the best.

Chade,

This looks really cool. I love the generic backgrounds of classrooms and hallways, a little subdued so they look real but bleed away, the same way a real school background would. The illustrations work well against that--the drawings are limber and evocative, and because of the contrast with the photos, stand in high relief. You have a good sense of focus, too, in terms of medium shots and close ups. And the reader cares right away about being transferred in senior year and about being confronted by a girl who says you're going down. I think you're really on the right track and the hard work has payed off. Well done, young captain.
