I’m realizing that I actually have quite a lot of these sketchy, non-linear, not-exactly-comics to post before getting to the point in the diary where I started really drawing stories. I’m worried that people will lose interest before I get to that point. It’s more a collection of drawings at this point than a comic, and it will be for quite a while, or at least a couple more months.
Maybe adding more commentary, to explain the context of the drawings, will help make it feel more like a continuous story to anyone besides myself. This one is a jumble of recollected adventures from traveling to New Orleans and San Francisco (for the New Orleans Bookfair and the Alternative Press Expo, of course), two of my very favorite cities in the world.
Sierra Kozman was this fantastic artist I met who was selling her work on the sidewalk near the bookfair, unfortunately her only web presence I can find is this probably long-forgotten myspace page with a few pictures of her beautiful collage/drawings. Sierra, if you ever google yourself and find this page, know that I am impatient for you to sell your work online so I can buy more of it.
