I visited York Beach, ME with Laurel on the 7th. Haven't been there in ages and I promised myself I'd go back there someday. It was a nice retreat from the claustrophobic climate here in White River Junction.
We both did a little sketching. Laurel posted her sketches here on her blog. Check them out!
I was really glad I got to go to the beach at least once this summer, even if it was after Labor Day.
Last Tuesday we were handed our first assignment of the year:
Essentially: to create 16 pages of the best comics we can before Oct. 23rd.
And right then I knew exactly the story I want to tell:
You've got yours.
I've got mine: a revenge story.
Revenge stories are so much fun.
Everyone loves a good revenge story.
It's a guilty pleasure.
I realized how simple this could be if I just strip it down.
It doesn't have to complicated because it stands for something complicated and the point of the story is to simplify it for everyone to enjoy.
At least I hope so (also hoping it's been enough time since that annoying Ninja fad that discouraged me from telling the story originally.)
Anyway, I'm very excited to begin!
