This is my thesis project for my masters degree from the Center for Cartoon Studies. The big book is The Crippler’s Son, which clocked in at 56 pages total. The book is perfect bound with a cream cardstock cover. It also has a pocket in the back for my mini-comic, Democracy Doomsday, which I used as a process experiment. I was trying out some techniques that I thought could help me be able to produce the pages for The Crippler’s Son faster, leaving me with plenty of time to work on the story. Democracy Doomsday is sixteen pages and printed on a Risograph machine in red and blue ink by my friends, Good Pals Comics & Prints.
I’m excited and nervous for the next couple weeks. I’ll be meeting with my thesis review committee on May 15th. In the meantime, I’ll be hanging up artwork for the thesis exhibition and working on my next big project.
