Cruise Comic Project [Feb. 11th, 2012|11:15 pm]
Next week I leave on an elderly cruise tour with my grandparents. The origins of this unlikely vacation will be revealed in comic form. I'll be making a small watercolored travelogue about the experience, that'll likely be on sale for digital download when I return (in a little over a week). I hope you guys enjoy this little preview, and I'll be back soon with comics and a sunburn!

Haha, yes, I will be doing that for sure. Also I will have a travelogue to make, so maybe I'll actually keep up with it this time! Says the girl still 50 pages behind on her europe travelogue...

We're a reading family. I've been drawing myself with contacts in recently, but I'm just like my four-eyed clan.

Aruba is supposed to be gorgeous. Ask all the old people stories about when they were young. Because if they are anything like my Grandma or Great Aunt, they probably had a pretty wild time. (One time when my Grandma was in her twenties, she and her friend drove from Seattle to like... Vancouver BC and hit every.single.bar. along the way. She also dated a lot of sailors and went to a lot of parties.

yes, this, and *record* the stories! ask your grands about when your parents and their sibs were younger, too. you can get some priceless stories that way, and I wish I'd had the chance to record them while mine were still here.

edit: complete words... good things, they are!

I just read through Fresh Milk (a gift from a friend who lived in France for a few months) and I am hoping against hope that you have enough content from the cruise to make it into a second beautiful book.

Wow! What a great idea! Cruises are great - they're a chance to see places you wouldn't see usually while having access to ALL THE FOOD.

Hope you have a great time and I look forward to hearing how it went :)

Have you read the David Foster Wallace story on taking a cruise?

Have a great time! I'm pretty sure it'll make for an interesting travel log! You're an introspective girl, you tend to think about things a lot. In the middle of an ocean with not much distraction, I'm pretty sure it'll give you loads of time to think about stuff and invest in your grandparents.

I don't know how talkative they are, but you could ask them about their history. Make a book somewhat biographies of their lives. As thanks to them for taking you along.
