Drawing Words & Writing Pictures: Final Project

For our final assignment in Drawing Words & Writing Pictures, our task was to create a fully finished one-page story. I chose to do this whimsical, yet slightly dark "snowman hunter" idea that has been kicking around in my head for a while. It was inspired by a mini-comic I made earlier this year about a snowman who refuses to accept his fate as winter draws to a close (I will probably scan and post that mini on here sometime) Doing the lettering was a challenge for me, as always, but I am pretty happy with the art, especially the use of dramatic shadows and the characterization of the sad, dying snowman. This class was a total blast, and I hope you enjoy reading my work as much as I did creating it!

Update: Here's a link to Jessica Abel's blog post with an overview on the class:

  1. This one is so great! I decided not to put it in my post because it's so detailed--I couldn't get it to look great on my screen. But you managed to do so here. One of my faves of the week.
