    I love to draw and I have stories to tell. So it made sense that I turned to Sequential Art. The Salmon of Knowledge is My first (completed) Graphic Short Story, done last year over the summer. It has 5 pages and is a “Trailer” for a much longer story (22 pages) that will be coming… well… soon (I have another one to finish beforehand). Pen and ink and watercolor on bristol board 17 x 11.

    Thanks Charlie for suggesting that I post my Graphic Short Stories.

    Thank you Kate, I’d happy to help you to the best of my abilities. I am rather a beginner myself. I started a bit over a year ago. But I take weekly classes and this has become the crux of my creative life.

    Many thanks, Charlie. I have another 22-pager to finish (goal: May 2018) before I work on the Salmon of Knowledge. My goal for the Salmon is the end of 2018. I may post it as I go, in episodes, on my FB and/or the Website I am setting up now. In the meanwhile, I’ll soon post my latest five-pager on this blog. Stay tuned 🙂

    This is my second five-pager, completed three weeks ago.  After “The Salmon of Knowledge”, I decided that NEVER AGAIN would I use watercolor on bristol boards (standard substrate for  Comic Artists). So for “The Return”, I used my favorite: Arches CP, 140lb. It makes pen work a lot easier too. I love that tooth. It allows so much more control. And of course, the watercolor paints itself on its own. 😉

    the Return page 2

    Yes, I know. I misspelled psychotherapy. That was my second try, and I didn’t think that the paper would sustain a second round of scratching.
