Sid the Pug (mini comic) Part 1

Well, if you haven’t noticed there have been some lapses between posts in April. This is mainly due to the fact that the cartooning class I was taking at the SVA was wrapping up and our final project, an 8-page mini comic, was due.

The past two weeks have consisted of a lot of late nights and cramped muscles from being hunched over the light table. The sleep deprivation and marker fumes left me in a cloudy state most of the time. Luckily, I had my little pug buddy next to me to keep me focused. Also, Jenn was a huge help in making sure the little stories for each strip were worded clearly and concisely (Thank you, Jenn!).

I printed the final mini comics on colored paper to make them stand out a little more. I think the colors were “salmon”, “goldenrod”, and “sea foam green”. When I was selecting the paper for the final prints, I felt like Lisa Simpson asking the copy shop guy for for “25 copies on canary, 25 on goldenrod, 25 on mustard, and 25 on lemon” to which the copy guy replies “Okay, 100 copies on yellow”. Anyway, below are the first 3 pages for your viewing pleasure (more to come in the following days):

Also, just wanted to send out a big thank you to my fellow classmates, who also each put together really amazing little comics, and to my talented instructor, Tom Motley. Be sure to check out some of his stuff!

    Thank you guys! If you can email me your addresses, I’ll mail each of you a hard-copy. I just printed out another batch today (I think they look a lot cooler than the electronic version). You can reach me here: brian(at)pugslope.com.
