My sister wrote a neat little article about art schools and comics and what not. She had artists from different educational backgrounds contribute their interpretation of an excerpt of Haruki Murakami’s Hard-Boiled Wonderland and the End of the World. The above is mine!

" Here’s a little background for those of you unfamiliar with the book…(from Wikipedia): A newcomer to ‘the End of the World’, a strange, isolated walled Town. The narrator is in the process of being accepted into the Town. The narrator is assigned quarters and a job as the current “Dreamreader”: a process intended to remove the traces of mind from the Town. He goes to the Library every evening where, assisted by the Librarian, he learns to read dreams from the skulls of unicorns. “

This was a really interesting and helpful exercise since it highlighted my flaws as a sequential artist. I’ve always struggled with paneling and intricate/efficient story-telling, but everyone executes is very beautifully.

one of my favorite things about asha greyjoy is that despite the fact that she operates in a masculine world, wears masculine clothing, and conducts herself in a greyjoy-centric masculine manner (taking what’s hers, paying the iron price) she never gives up the trappings of femininity?

because no…
