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.

This is awesome! The art is fantastic and the story gripping!March 20, 2018 at 7:00 pm #136498Kate PowellParticipant@kate-powell
How cool! I may come pick your brain as i have a couple ideas for “sequential art”!March 20, 2018 at 7:11 pm #136499
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.March 21, 2018 at 6:28 am #136510Delores AzaryParticipant@delores

Thank you, Dolores.March 21, 2018 at 2:16 pm #136543Charlie O’ShieldsKeymaster@doodlewash
This is fantastic! Thank you so much for posting this, Marie… LOVE the story and the artwork is beautiful! And it’s a great trailer… or should I say teaser?? I want to read all 22 pages!!!March 21, 2018 at 2:38 pm #136552
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 🙂March 24, 2018 at 12:02 am #136785
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. 😉
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.March 24, 2018 at 1:06 pm #136813Sandra StraitParticipant@sandra-strait
How very awesome! The artwork is marvelous and I was totally caught up in the story.March 24, 2018 at 3:08 pm #136819
Many thanks, Sandra!March 24, 2018 at 3:25 pm #136820Charlie O’ShieldsKeymaster@doodlewash
