Here’s an “Unfolder” mini-comic featuring loons:
It’s a 2-sided mini, but I drew it on 2 separate sheets of paper to keep the ink from bleeding through & wrecking both sides!
The “Unfolder” Mini-Comic Format = 1 sheet → 3-page story // Each page is 2x larger than the previous. // No staples or cutting required!
PROCESS (drawn live @ COMICS CAMP 2020):
(A) On 1/4 folded sheet, intro a character.
(B) “Open up” the story w/ more setting details (& another character?)
(C) [Oops, wait, the ink of (A) might bleed through your paper…]
[… So let’s P*I.E. our “C” page on a separate sheet of paper, & double-side the final copies!]
Final pages (Single-Sided Artwork):
I decided to leave out the word bubbles here — I plan to use copies of this as a letter-writing blank card, so I’ll add word bubbles by hand as I fill in the blank spaces w/ my letter!
Reading sequence (unfolding):
Here’s how a final copy (double-sided) looks as the reader unfolds it. I included my website at the bottom of page (C), so readers will always know where the artwork came from.
