I finished this last Tuesday (or sometime Tuesday in this near past!)
This is what i turned in for my senior project u;vu)/ a lot of blood sweat and chai went into this little book!
Yesterday I decided to just draw something for funnsies :-0 So I drew future Belakane and Gail. Originally I was going to draw something referencing Mexican culture (a festive skirt and top for Belakane and chola inspired clothing for Gail) But then it turned into this haha XD they just want to go enjoy Summer together haha. ahhhh drawing.
I Know (but I won’t stop)
20-something/Busboy at Kat Kafè
Goal: Remember his schedule
Klinger is a happy go lucky kinda guy that isn’t terribly bright. Belakane and Rodney know very little about their roommate’s past as he claims to have missing memories. But none of this bothers him too much, he likes to take care of things that are in front of him and all the rest he kinda forgets about.
Belakane and Rodney found him past-out late one night at the entrance of Town covered in mud and smelling like a rave. Not knowing quite what to do, they took him home and cleaned him up. Upon taking him home, however, they discovered that Klinger was coming down from some kind of high and was detoxing severely. Belakane knew how to hand the symptoms so they didn’t bother taking him to the hospital. When he got better, they tried asking him where he needed to go, but told them he didn’t even know his own name. Belakane and Rodney named him Klinger after their favorite dress wearing character on M.A.S.H. Since then he hasn’t bothered leaving and Belakane and Rodney bothered asking him to.
19/Associate @ Prairie Dog Pump/ Part-time student Corner Mountain College
Goals: Beautician School
Rodney is a quite and somewhat timid guy. He has a hard time expressing himself and might come off too strong when he tries to verbalize his concerns. He has lived in Town since he was born. His mother was an immigrant who used to be an amateur beautician out of their living room to make ends meat. However after she remarried, she was beaten to death by her husband in the shower. The local police called the incident an accident and the man was never charged. Rodney left home and began living with Belakane soon after.
Rodney has always loved and respects his mother, and wants to be a professional beautician as a way to be closer to her.
Process of my senior show wall so far! now i just need to hang my pages and make my book! AWWWW YUS!
Here are scrapped pages, as well as pages that where abandoned due to script re-writes and a little sketching I’ve done for this project thus far. :-)
This projects been really great. Interesting, too, because I tend to use comics to gain closure on events in my life or emotions that where difficult to cope with (as exemplified by my other works). I looked at my years in high school a lot for this project and I think it’s allowed my to heal some. As well as begin to looking at the events in my life at the time through a more objective leans and analyze the decisions that where happing around me.
Anyways! now I’m just babbling, haha!
Enjoy the images!
