Paste Comics Launch Notice
A comic sent to publishers and distributors to announce the launch of Paste Magazine's new Comics section. 2014.
The Columbusonian was a monthly interview comic that appeared in 614 Magazine, a local Columbus, OH publication. Running from June of 2012 to January 2016, each installment of The Columbusonian featured a brief snapshot of someone in Columbus doing what they do, from the mayor of Columbus, to a homeless man struggling to stay fed.
Each page was constructed following an in-depth conversation with the subject and word balloons contain direct quotes (quotes from the dead were obtained by way of psychic mediums, homegrown necromancy, and ritual donut sacrifice). The illustrative depictions of all subjects are purely a result of the artist's limited technical abilities and asinine aesthetic sensibilities.
Despite the temptation to hide my own shortcomings, these pages are presented here as they appeared in print, with no corrections, edits, or re-coloring. The Columbusonian was my laboratory and my paid art school, where I was relatively free to try out different approaches and techniques in creating a one-page comic, each page an exeperimental step forward in my understanding of how comic pages work.
