I guess I should describe the project, for re-blog purposes. Whoops. As some of you might know, I’ve been working on my first novel-length comic book for the duration of the past year. My book is called Year One, and through weekly vignettes, illustrates my entire first year living in Philadelphia, after a significant move from Chicago. In some pages, my weekly activities are illustrated. In others, just a pertinent conversation. Year One was drawn in real time, finishing 2-3 pages as every week went by. I’ve spent hundreds of hours working on this project over the last year and am very excited to get it out into the world in the form of my very first book! Prior to this project, the longest comic i had ever drawn was 6 pages long. Year One is 136 pages and will be offset printed and perfect bound at 8x10 inches. It is 100% complete from front cover to back cover (and scanned, cleaned up, edited, edited again, and sized for printing. I literally just need to hit send and fork over a deposit to the printer).
Year One uses a variety of storytelling formats to give an overall glimpse into a year in the life of a late twenty-something year old, trying to figure out her place as a young artist outside of the post-college years. It is lighthearted, somber, lonely, funny, and quiet. It shows the number of people who come and go throughout a year, new love, old romance, loss and grief, and more generally, the search for a sense of self.
You can read it for free online at http://www.everydaypants.com/yearone but it would be way more fun for you to read it in print. 
Thanks!
